Prayer is the heartbeat of Youth for Christ.
In John chapter 15 Jesus tells His disciples that He is the Vine and they are the branches. “Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me” John 15 v 4.
At Youth for Christ we have developed a culture of prayer because we acknowledge that, like the disciples, we need to stay connected to Jesus in everything that we do. As followers of Jesus we also pray because we have a relationship with Him and therefore need to speak to Him and listen for His voice each day.
We use our time, gifts, energy and efforts to reach young people in Britain with the Good News but we know that it is God who works through us. As we pray we express our thanks and praise to God and humbly present our requests to Him.
This January we begin #Pray365 – A whole year of prayer where we, as the British YFC family, commit to interceding before God for young people in this nation each day, whilst growing the discipline of prayer and fasting. It brings collaborative focus and unity of mind as we make an intentional choice to ‘Seek God’ with all we are and have – nothing held back, everything surrendered. As YFC, we are intentionally going on a journey to grow a culture of prayer and deepen our relationship with Jesus. We would love for you to join us, you can sign up to become a #pray365 partner using the form below.
