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.


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



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



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



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

Just an update on some previous prayer requests along with one new request:

It was originally thought that baby Lily would have to have a tracheotomy. The doctors ended up deciding against it for the time being, but just yesterday she was put back in ICU due to her throwing up and being short of oxygen.

Please continue to pray for Brian. He is still having a difficult time after his bone marrow transplant and with the side effects of chemo. Please pray for healing and that he can start to regain his strength soon.

“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."

We are about 8 or 9 weeks into this new reality of Covid and ministry is different - still happening, but different. Lots of video chats and phone calls to check in and see how kids are doing.

Teens are about the same as adults. Some are good, some are bad, and nearly all want a little freedom and to see people physically. If you’re feeling an emotion, there’s a good chance a student is too as we are all human.

Here are some ways you can be praying for YFC in the next two weeks.


1. Wisdom for our leadership as they decide how and when we re-enter being physically present with students.

2. Parents of seniors who are also grieving the loss of graduation and special trips, parties, and celebration moments

3. Praying for students with mental health issues and homes are aren’t safe.


1. We’ve been able to meet more with middle school students that are hard to reach through video

2. God is still discipling students. There are a few who have grown immensely with the Lord in this time. Praising for that!

“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."

Luke 11:9-10

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.

I’m starting to see just how crazy this invitation is. Jesus gives me far more permission to ask than I take advantage of. He calls us toward searching (Proverbs 2) and tells us we’ll find the treasure. I am allowed to boldly knock. When I try to put that into terms I understand, it makes it more real. Allow me to use an analogy.

Ask: That is giving my kids 100% freedom to ask and ask and ask for anything. I may say no, but that doesn’t ever stop them from asking. “Daddy, can I have a pony and a house all to myself?” Ask away.

Seek: There’s surprises for us each day if we look. Jesus delights in revealing himself to us. That is the same as finding small ways to delight and surprise those around me in small and big ways.

Knock: That is me telling anyone and everyone, you can come knock on my door at any time and I’ll make space for you. Any time. Every time, I’ll listen. And I thought getting up two times a night with my daughter was crazy, but he goes farther than I do.

All it means for me. I’m beginning (key word, beginning) to pray for things bolder. Being more forward with it. And instead of trying to avoid stepping “over the line” or asking for things I’m “not allowed to”, I’m asking Jesus to rebuke me if it’s not possible. I’m asking:

“Jesus, I pray that every person in my entire lineage knows you until you return. If it’s marriage, birth, adoption, foster care, anyone that comes into our family in any way, may they be HOLY unto you. Whether 1 year from now, or 1000. May they all know you and love you forever. Do that for my family.”

“Jesus, miraculously heal ____. I won’t stop asking until you give me an answer of ‘yes.’”

So far, he hasn’t said that my requests are out of line. Ask, seek, and knock.


I think a lot about Ivan, Jake and Mike. Praying specifically that they comes to follow Jesus.


We added 20 kids this week who want to share their faith with 5 friends. That’s 100 kids who will hear about Jesus from someone they know! Pray for their boldness!

Three students reached out independently to ask how to grow in faith! We’re meeting virtually to talk about it!

I love getting to pray for y’all. Thanks for lifting these students up to Jesus!

I have a Simon C George, he's a lawyer. He doesn't believe in God. He wants someone to prove that God exists. Never been a Christian before. I just don't know-how, so my prayers request is to ask God to show him something (I don't know. Something miraculous). Pray for him, God.

Please pray for our friends in Wanblee and those on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Reservations. They are on complete lockdown as of right now. That means the food that Families Working Together is packing up and sharing in the community can’t be delivered or received. Also, child abuse is already prevalent on the reservation and this time being confined to home, could be dangerous for both women and children. We are not allowed to deliver the food that has been donated yet due to the lockdown either. We are still accepting donations to go up there and hoping to get it up there soon!

“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."

Prayer Team,

In some ways, I love these trying times. They create tension and pain. Powerful emotions. I’ve found that every moment of growth in my life has been from tension and pain. I even shared today that I love knowing there will be growth and good coming, but I hate the pain of the moment. Can I get the growth without the pain?

The answer is no.

We can’t get something for nothing. Leaning into the tension and pain is the price we pay for growth, but I’ll gladly pay it. I don’t go looking for it, but when it knocks on my door, I want to receive it with joy, knowing my God will do something with it.

Destiny is a process, not a destination. Commit to the pain and tension. Embrace the difficult and becomes friends with fear. For I have discovered the secret. The only way to get to the destination is through the tension and pain. That doesn’t sound that great to most, but I know Jesus.

He led the way by example. Think about this. He was perfectly in the will of the Father on the cross. God’s plan to accomplish His work was in the most bloody way. A sacrifice that Jesus endured for the joy set before him (Hebrews 12:2). It resulted in His glory as he rose from the grave. Our faith is tied to that resurrection.

The wonderful part of it all is this: I go though it with my shepherd and he’s beyond good to me in the midst of it. Even when my fear stops me and the pain numbs me, he is right beside me, beaconing me toward the light. I’m walking that direction with you and looking forward to seeing how he uses it to make me more like him. I pray the same for you…even in the midst of the tension and pain.

James 1:2-5, Philippians 4:2-9, Hebrews 12:2-13


Kid’s mental health – there are a number of students who struggle with depression/isolation. Praying for them specifically and against the enemy.

Unsafe homes – there are kids who like going to school and Campus Life to escape home. They’ve been in my thoughts lots as I see names and faces.

Wisdom for decision makers – Ask for wisdom (James 1:2-5) as people lead into new seasons and rhythms. At the government level, leadership, non-profits, and personal.


Being able to minister to kids apart has been fun. It’s a challenge and mixes up the normal flow and routine a ton!

Lots of new family memories and laughter together!

Please pray for Harold, a dear friend and mentor, who has had his bypass surgery postponed. This will be his second or third delay in treating his condition since around the holidays. Harold is a very positive and faith-filled individual so there is much to be thankful for with that. He is such a great encourager, we pray he may also be encouraged that this delay lead to greater results for him.

Thank you.

Prayer Requests:

Short and simple – pray that God gives us wisdom on how and where to engage. We’re going to be entirely remote relationships for the foreseeable future and it’s not well travelled waters. Pray we can equip, lead, and serve our volunteer teams well!

For your encouragement:

About last Thursday my brother and I were talking about the different things we’d been reading. The main topic, of course, was whether we thought this Coronavirus was a real threat or closer to Ebola. Our conclusion was both “real threat.”

You are certainly entitled to your opinion, and I’m not here to convince you one way or another. Yet, I do want to tell you what I know about my Lord. I don’t know the future, but I think I KNOW him. He’s got a few things to say.

Anxiety to Peace

John 14:23-27 – ”But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”

I love that this was this morning reading. Jesus said this to his disciples on the way to the cross. He leaves us with peace. He is the prince of peace. I’m with him. If he can have it walking toward the cross, then the Holy Spirit can certainly engage with us too!

Fear to Joy and Thanksgiving

Philippians 4:4-8 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

Wherever you get information could give you hundreds of reasons to be afraid. I experienced my initial battle with it Saturday night for about 5 minutes. Until I was reminded “I never could control or know the future anyway. But I know what I can set my mind on.”

Therefore, I read news, I get reports, I inform where and when I can, and ultimately, I pray. I focus on what I’m thankful for. Everyday, I’m making a paper chain. Our family will write things we’re thankful for each day. NOT to put our head in the sand and avoid pain, but as a reminder to set our minds on things above.

I may never get a chance to lead my family through something like this, however tragic or overblown it may be. I don’t want to miss the opportunity and I pray the news is overblown.

“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."

Jesus claims to be so many things. Bread of life, living water, truth, light, the way, grace, judge, I am, resurrection and life, and the Christ among others. I love that in every way he’s saying, “I alone satisfy. Life is ONLY found in me.”

This is why I always pray that kids meet Jesus and follow him, not that they become “Christian.” Christians aren’t bad, neither is Christianity. Yet, many never experience life in Christ because they inadvertently follow Christianity and not the Christ behind the movement. Even for me, Christianity only satisfies when I live life following Jesus because it’s about Jesus and abiding with him. So many times I’ve played the “religious game” of going to church, praying, reading without ever falling more in love with Jesus.

So today, pray with me that these students meet and fall madly, passionately, wildly in love with Jesus, because he’s crazy about them!


“Aiden.” He realized last week while talking about faith; “Then it means that Jesus is real, but I don’t know about following him yet.” His eyes are being opened!

“Jake.” – Still praying he meets and follows Jesus.

“Ivan.” – he keeps asking great questions, keeps coming, and his hang-up is he doesn’t want to follow Jesus because he thinks evangelizing is wrong. Praying he meets Jesus!

Laborers for the Harvest – Jesus told us to pray and ask, so I’m praying and asking. We’ve added 5 leaders 2019 and I’m praying for more!

Pray for Doza and Gabi, leaders, as they share and lead from the front for the first time! I’m excited to grow with them!


Norman is a volunteer of ours following Jesus and moving to Oregon. They found a house they can afford and are in contract!

We have an all-star volunteer team. Everyone is meeting with kids 1 on 1+ to go deeper in asking questions. Even with kids from different faiths. Love the favor we’ve been given!

I’m so thankful that Jesus answers prayer. It’s his delight to listen to us and lead us to trust him more. Here’s a few people to pray for!


“Iago” and I had a good talk the other week about his suicide text. He admitted it was a bad day, but didn’t want to go through with it.

Keep praying he finds life in Christ.


“Carl” and his girlfriend are expecting a child. Pray that they get connected to people who can show them what parenting looks like. Neither knows Jesus…yet.

Norman is a volunteer of ours following Jesus and moving to Oregon. Pray for him to finish his time in Omaha well and for provision for a house that’s affordable.

I’m praying for “Jed.” He doesn’t know Jesus, but I felt compelled to offer him a chance to be on mission for me. If Jesus can do it with his disciples, I think I need to be offering it as well. Pray he wants to serve in a small way and discovers Jesus along the way!

Thanks for the prayers! Let’s watch out God act in response!
