Join others for a time of prayer:

Wednesday: A group meets at the West Campus on 180th 2 blocks North of Dodge at 4:00 pm in room W 10/11.
 

If we can pray for you, please submit your request on the Prayer Wall.

 
So, how do we pray? Jesus taught us how to pray in Matthew 6:9-13. Jesus said, “This, then, is how you should pray.” He did not say this is what you should say, but rather this is how you should pray. The Lord’s prayer gives four specific things to pray about. One of the best ways to remember these four things is through the acronym P.R.A.Y.
 

PRAISE

Tell God thanks for who He is and what He has done. Our Father in heaven, hollowed be your name.” (Matthew 6:9a) See also: 1 Chronicles 29:10-13

 

REPENT

Confess your sins to God. Tell him how sorry you are for them and that you need His forgiveness. Ask God for strength not to do the sin again. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.” (Matthew 6:12) See also: Psalm 51:1-12

 

ASK

Give your requests to God. Give us today our daily bread.” And “lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one.” (Matthew 6:11 & 6:13) See also: Ephesians 6:19-20

 

YIELD

Spend time submitting to God that His will be done in your life. Spend time quietly listening to God. Your kingdom done, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10) See also: Matthew 26:39 & Psalm 46:10a

“O God, we want this work kept on a miracle basis. We want everyone to know that God's hand is on this movement. We want folks to see that this is too big and too great for any person or group of people to accomplish by themselves. We want folks to say God did it."

When I was younger I memorized Micah 6:8 which said: “You oh man, what does the Lord require of you? But seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God.” As I read it the other day, I noticed that it reads “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God.” I realized my error, to seek something and not find it, is a bummer. If you seek, that means you’re consistent with what has been challenged, seek. But, it is “do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God.” All three are active commands. It is much harder to do justice because it requires we get skin in the game. We are challenged to love mercy. I thought of all the students I have: “Do I LOVE giving them what they don’t deserve? Do I love showing them kindness when they are being horrible?” Ironically, it juxtaposes the first command to “do justice” because justice demands a penalty be paid, but they go together. Finally, walk humbly with God, as if that is an easy thing. I’m so prone to pride that it’s almost second nature an don’t get me started on how often I’m right and someone else is wrong (just ask my wife). It’s something I was challenged with recently, maybe you will be too!

Praise:

We had some new young students show up to club. Two of whom just got suspended from school. You might not see that as a huge win, but I do. They are the least, lonely, and the lost!

Prayer:

1. Continuing to pray that the least, lonely, and lost join Campus Life. We have some incredible leaders ready to love them well!

2. Pray for the salvation of Gage, Chase, Braydon, and Jackson. I’m praying that the Lord radically changes their lives!

3. Pray for Ian’s growth in God. He came to faith in June and has been doing Bible studies with some of his peers. He told me the other day “I honestly just want to be like Jesus.”

4. Personally: pray that the federal teach grant accepts Allison’s final year of teaching as “completed.” If it’s accepted she has the freedom to be a stay at home mother as long as she would like to!
