Praying for Youth

My 3 month goal from the National Youth Ministry Conference was to develop a plan for praying for our youth on a regular basis. This would not replace the 3rd Thursday Prayer group (which, btw, actually meets this Thursday because of Maundy Thursday last week), but rather would be a supplement to it. We want to pray for the youth, but we want them to know we prayed for them as well. Toward that end, I’ve drawn up a new prayer card, similar to our birthday one:

Prayer Postcard Front

Prayer Postcard Back

As we pray for the youth, we’d send them a card letting them know we prayed for them and that they are loved by God and their church. Now I just need to draw up the rotation and find the volunteers to commit to praying for the youth regularly. If any of you are interested, let me know and I’ll add your name to the list.

    Hi! My name is Maria, I live at El Paso, Tx.
    I was googling images on “prayed” and I ended up in your beautiful site.
    I am a mom to two teenagers and the idea of praying for the youth in regular basis is just FANTASTIC!!!! May God bless all of your projects and may His Holy Spirit be the light of your life.
    For people like you I give thanks!!
    Happy Thanksgiving day!
