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!

  • He asks you to PRAY. "Call to me, He says.
  • He gives you a PROMISE. 'I will answer you,', He vows.
  • He provides you with POWER. "I will tell you great and unsearchable things," He exclaims.

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.

  • Do a prayer walk around your school.
  • Join others in praying during See You at the Pole and then throughout the year.
  • Conduct a concert of prayer with a large group of students praying together.
  • Try "yearbook praying" where you pray through your school's annual.
  • Design a plan to pray locker to locker for every person in your school.
  • Go room to room asking God to work in the lives of students and teachers in every room in your school.
  • Take prayer requests asking people at school how you can pray for them.
  • Do "doorway praying" by standing at the doorway of your school and praying for every person who comes in the door.

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!

That's incredible!

Do you really want to see God work in the lives of your friends? Are you wondering how to get this going?

Here's how…

 

Pray!

3 friends...

Meet 3 times a week to pray...

For 3 friends who need Christ.

  • 3 friends. They will encourage you and hold you accountable. What a gift that is!
  • Meet 3 times a week to pray. Arrange your schedule to pray whenever you like before school, after school, free time, over lunch, at night, on the weekend, on the phone. You get the idea. Work it out together. Just make sure you get 10-15 minutes together when you meet.
  • For 3 friends who need Christ. Who are 3 friends that you want to come to Christ? Pray for those 3 friends every time you meet to pray. Ask God how He wants to use you to reach them.

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?
