Our youth ministry has promoted prayer champions for several years now. This ministry has linked an adult with a youth until they graduate high school. The purpose is for the adult to pray for that youth and hopefully build a relationship with them. Here’s how it works:
- For adults that are interested in becoming a prayer champion with the Pray for Me Campaign, please sign up using the link below..
- There will be a “launch day”, July 30th, where the youth and prayer champions will come together to be partnered. We will separate the prayer champions into 2 generations. Each youth will ask prayer champions from each generation to pray for them. Ideally each youth will have 2 prayer champions. This partnership will last for a year. Then we will do a new launch. This way each youth has the opportunity to connect with and be prayed for by the majority of the body of Open Door.
- A prayer guide is available for $10 for prayer champions to help them pray for their youth throughout the year (if you have one from last year, it is the same version so no need to purchase a new one). Your level of commitment is to pray for your youth for an entire school year. This is not set-up to be a mentoring relationship, but that is awesome if the Lord leads you in that way.
Please prayerfully consider becoming a prayer champion to our youth. Statistics say that “40-50% of students from good youth groups and families will drift from God and the church after high school”. It also shows that “adult believers are crucial in passing on a lasting faith to the next generation” (Pray for Me Campaign).
