The Pray for Me Campaign

Who?

Children K-6th Grade, Youth 7th - 12th Grade and adults within the congregation in three different generations (20-30's, 40-50's, 60's+).

What?

3 adults from 3 different generations will pray scripture over 1 child for 1 school year.

With the help of the Pray for Me Prayer Guide, adults will pray the 7 essentails of core things that need to be pursued in order to flourish in living faithfully before God & man. Those things are: wisdom, favor, speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity. These are drawn from tow primary passages of scripture:

Luke 2:52 - " And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man."

1 Timothy 4:12 - " Let no despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity."

When?

Prayer Champions will pray scripture for their children over the course of a school year.

Sign ups to be a Prayer Champion & to recieve a Prayer Champion are going on now through August 24. Our Pray for Me Launch will be on Wednesday, September 7. At this event, children will meet their Prayer Champions for the school year. The Prayer Champions will begin their journey through their Pray for Me Guide on Sunday, September 21.

Why?

80% of children/teens raised in the church will disengage by the time they are 29. We want to change this! The Pray for Me Campaign creates the opportunity for chilldren to connect naturally with adults who will pray for them. We want every child involved in the Pray for Me Campaign to be equipped with everything they need to remain rooted in their faith and connected in the church.

How?

Each child and teens invites three adults from three different generations to be their Prayer Champions for a school year. The children's and youth's invitation builds a bridge from their generations to the next. This creates a web of intergenerational relationships that support children through 6th grade and Youth 7th - 12th Grade.

Prayer Champions will pray scripture for their student using the Pray for Me Prayer Guide, a tool designed to help adults effectively pray the scriptures over their students fro the course of a school year, this book can be purchased
