Tea Time Prayer Request...

With the Youth Retreat over now, I wanted to keep the momentum going for the high school girls. The theme verse for the retreat was:
1 John 2:15-17
Do not love the world nor the things in the world If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.

The program for the retreat was organized well:
  • Morning - Quiet time bible study prep followed by study discussion.
  • Afternoon - friendship building, fun in the water or games or service projects.
  • Evening - testimonies by different people and sermons
  • Late - reflection/ chatting / games
It seems as though the kids really connected and understood the topics and could apply the messages very easily. It was so encouraging to hear my bible study girls talk about seeing areas of world's influence in their lives both in believers and unbelievers. I am hoping with the Tea Time Bible Study, that I am starting this week, will help to continue to connect some of the dots for the girls.
  • Please pray for our Thursday Tea Times in the next 4 weeks.
  • Pray that the girls would be humbled by the Word of God.
  • Pray that many of the girls would be humbled in their understanding of who they are before God.
  • Pray that many would long and urn to know more our crucified and risen Lord.
  • Pray the girls would strive after God more than they strive after other things.
Thanks for praying.
