First Things First
"Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know." Jeremiah 33:3 (NIV)
"Young people in student led prayer bands have been at the forefront in almost every awakening." J Edwin Orr
That is what God wants to do for you!
Nothing of any significance will happen with your friends or at your school until you pray. When you do, God moves into action. When He acts, He doesn't just give you peanuts; He does things beyond your wildest imagination.
When you think about how to pray for your school, you have all kinds of options.
The list is as long as you are creative:
However one approach needs to be at the heart of your prayer strategy. Jesus laid it out for us in Matthew 18:18-20: "I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there I am with them." New International Version [NIV]
Here Jesus promises that all of His resources are available to you. When you pray to Him, He releases those resources and answers your prayers. That's awesome! Then He tells us that there is incredible spiritual power when we pray in unity with other believers. When we pray in twos and threes, His presence is with us in a special way.
Jesus' presence and power are available to change peoples' lives when we meet in twos and threes to pray!
Do you really want to see God work in the lives of your friends? Are you wondering how to get this going?
Meet 3 times a week to pray...
For 3 friends who need Christ.
When the 3 of you meet together to pray, you are asking God to change the lives of 9 of your friends. If that happens you will have the beginning of a spiritual revolution on your campus. Imagine what could happen when all the other Christians on your campus begin to pray like this. It will change your school in ways you never imagined!
It can all begin with you!
Will you and two friends take the challenge?
