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

Praise and Prayers for our high schoolers who are at the MOVE conference this week and the leaders that are with them!

Day 1 of Move

Praise God! We left Omaha at 3am on Sunday to make it to Anderson, IN in time to start the MOVE Conference that is hosted by CIY. We had great weather to make it here safely. We checked in, took a group photo, and then headed straight to dinner! After that, the Small Group Leaders went to a meeting and our young people were welcomed officially to Move.

Last night, we talked about how God invites us into His story. We are spending the week looking at the life of Elijah and how that can be applied into our daily lives. We looked at 3 groups of people. King Ahab - who did horrible things, the people - who either followed half-heartedly or distracted others from believing, and Elijah - people who lead others to God. We ended the night asking our young people, “if they had to describe themselves as one of the groups - which group would they fall into?” Then we offered assurance that no matter which group they are in - God invites them into His story!

Pray for God to do mighty things within the hearts of our young people this week. That those who believe in Him may be strengthened and encouraged. Those who want to believe in Him are touched by the Spirit this week and have the boldness to proclaim their faith. To those who don’t believe - that they may hear that there is a God who loves them and is pursuing them - and that the story of Elijah may provide that for them.

I also ask - that you pray for our Small Group Leaders for wisdom, for words, for whatever is going on at home, and for clarity as they speak with young people. They are Shelly Oestmann, Carla Faulk, Laurel Heskett, Zac Vyhlidal, Autumn Love. These individuals are engaging in deep conversations, creating friendships, and giving up their time to be alongside our young people.
