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

Day 3

It is Day 3 here at MOVE. Tonight was a big and impactful night. As we continue through the story of Elijah - we get to the point after God showed up BIG at the showdown with Baal - where Elijah on his own prompting heads to a cave because Jezebel wants Elijah dead. It says in 1 Kings 19:3, “Elijah was afraid and ran for his life.” We stopped right there because after everything Elijah had seen God do - he still didn’t fully trust in God especially when Jezebel wanted him dead!

Where do run to when we are scared? Do you run into the arms of God or do we run to our own “cave”? That was the question for the evening. CIY put up 5 light all across the room to signify caves that are common hiding places for young people. The caves that were set up were caves of fear, apathy, shame, loneliness, and anger. We then spent time in prayer asking God to illuminate the cave that we are stuck in and unwilling to come out of. After that young people got to go to the cave that they’ve been stuck on. Our Small Group Leaders then went with young people to pray over them and with them. Tears were shed, hearts were open, and God moved in not only our young people but others here. We went into our group time as a church and heard stories, prayed with each other, and opened up to one another.

Please continue praying for our young people and our Small Group Leaders.

Day 4

Today was a chill day. The last 2 days have been overwhelming for our young people and frankly us as Small Group Leaders too. Move doesn’t only reach young people, but it forces us as Small Group Leaders to look inside of us and see where our faith is and what we are struggling with.

We spent time still in our Small Groups in downtown Indianapolis today. We walked across downtown in the sunshine and in the rain exploring and see what it has to offer! It was a great time to debrief with some young people on their week, their faith life, and other things going on. The wisdom that can come from a young person is so overwhelming at times too!

We got back to campus and one of our young people was selected to be the “Freshest Prince” all day long - so we celebrated Tanner! God is doing some amazing things in this young person and it is fun and awesome to be alongside him. He was interviewed on the main stage and is loved by everyone!

Our message from this evening was talking about being sent! The speaker and our small group leaders talked about the people who had been sent to them to share the Gospel with them and how in the living or passed away - those people are still sending people to them to share the message and love of Christ. We asked our young people to think about those being sent to them and who they believe they are sent to. Just as Elijah went and found Elisha, just as Jesus went out and found his disciples; we too are to go and find people to share the Good News with! My favorite moment of the week was watching our young people be vulnerable in sharing who the person they want to share the Gospel was and then praying out loud for the person next to them.

So the question is - what person are you being sent to share the Gospel with? Open yourselves to the Holy Spirit - that the spirit may guide you. Depend on the “I AM” to give you the words to speak to that person. Remember the Cross and what Christ did for you - so you can share that with passion, purpose, and meaning!
