Join with us this Thursday...

National Day of Prayer is this Thursday, May 2nd, with areas of concentration on Church; Family; Education; Business; Military; Government; and Arts, Entertainment, and Media. YOURS Ministry seeks your help in joining with us in prayer, focusing on education.

In Paula J. Fox’s book, The Heart of a Teacher, she says to her fellow teachers: “A child’s heart is fragile…do not break it. A child’s mind is open…do not close it. A child’s soul is tender…do not harden it. A child’s spirit is joyful…do not crush it.” It reminds us of the importance of praying for teachers as well as youth leaders and parents.

Every child bears an originality that is evidence of the image of God in his or her life. How else do you explain a child’s creativity, spontaneity, and imagination? Who but the Creator could build in such a spirit of adventure and a curiosity to discover? God has filled every child with a magnificent potential that is distinct from any other person. And He has placed parents, teachers, and community organizations like YOURS to nurture and provide opportunities for children to discover and help develop their interests and talents.

Let us pray. God, there is so much to pray for our youth as they grow up, and my prayer is that You will help parents, educators, and YOURS Ministry. Provide our youth with the special nurture and loving atmosphere that will help them discover their gifts and talents and develop them for Your glory. Surround our youth with so much encouragement that no feelings of inadequacy, fear, or uncertainty will keep them from becoming the joyful, creative people You desire them to be. I pray for wisdom and discernment to reign in the hearts of YOURS Board and staff, parents, teachers, and this community, in safeguarding the hearts and minds of our teens. In Jesus Name, Amen.
