On my heart

Here is an email I just sent to our Elders asking them to pray for our High School Ministry, Explode. I feel like God wants to do huge things here. Will you please pray for us too?

Dear Elders,
I am writing to you to ask you if you will remember to pray for Explode on a regular basis. We have had some huge wins in the last couple months I really feel like God is moving in amazing ways.
This summer we, our adult leaders, made a commitment to pray for Hume Lake every time we ate for over a month. That was the most successful camp I have ever been a part of. We took more students than we have ever taken and more students made a commitment for Christ than I could have imagined.
From that time on God has really pressed praying more for Explode on my heart. I took Him up on that and prayed a whole bunch for Invite Night about a month ago. That night we had record attendance; over 180 students were there. Since then we have averaged over 100+ at Explode.
Will you please take the time to remember Explode in prayer and remember the lost students that we are trying to reach? I feel like God is doing something big; like we are on the cusp of something huge that is about to happen and I don’t want us to miss out on that. Pray for students to be a light on their campus, for small groups to engage students and for students to shine for Christ in their homes. I really think that we are in an amazing place right now.
Thank you all so much!

Thank you for this.

In some way, it encouraged me a lot today.

I need reminders that there is really not a lot WE can do to get our kids to fall in love with God... we have to pray that HE will do it.
