Pray for Youth for Christ El Paso.

Tomorrow morning, we as the board of Youth for Christ El Paso will gather together at 8:00 am to pray for the new school year of ministry with YFC. I want to invite you to join with us in prayer wherever you're at. Below are the things we'll pray about and even if it's after 8:00 am tomorrow, please pray for these things anyway. I believe this will be one of the greatest ministry years ever of YFC, so thanks for your prayers.

Prayer Requests:

1. That God would open any unopened doors in every and all areas of YFC: financial areas, churches, and campuses.

2. That this year we would be able to reach even more young people for Christ. That there would be a 10-fold multiplication of what God is already doing on YFC campuses in El Paso. That many more campuses and churches be added.

3. That through the planning of upcoming banquet, God would open even more doors in financial areas that perhaps we have never tapped into.

4. That as a Board we would begin to intercede frequently, and not only pray during our board meetings.

5. That the banquet would be 100% sponsored through business donors in this city.

6. For all our families. 

7. For Rick (YFC's executive director), as he has to deal with various pressures from different people in different areas. That God would pour more and more of Him as he continues to walk in faith with the vision that God has given him in this city for YFC and Ft. Bliss. 

8. That as a Board, we would be so united and stand together in times of battle and discouragement.

9. For Tara (our campus director) and her family: provision and strength to manage tasks that God has placed in their lap.

10. For Rosemary and Zach (YFC staffers): for greater leadership and greater abilities to manage responsibilities. That God would open contracting positions at Ft. Bliss so that they can continue to help with YFC.

12. For our jobs and ministries that each of us is doing. That God would prosper the work of our hands and give us greater favor. 

13. For continued passion of each YFC chapter.

14. That this year, God has marked it as a year of great increase for YFC, and that we would hold on to that promise with all we got!

We pray based on God’s Word:

Psalm 91:15
They will call to me, and I will answer them.
I will be with them in trouble;

I will rescue them and honor them.

1 Corinthians 15:58

So my dear brothers and sisters, stand strong. Do not let anything move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your work in the Lord is never wasted.
Colossians 1:10
... so that you will live the kind of life that honors and pleases the Lord in every way. You will produce fruit in every good work and grow in the knowledge of God.
Hebrews 6:10-11
God is fair; he will not forget the work you did and the love you showed for him by helping his people. And he will remember that you are still helping them. We want each of you to go on with the same hard work all your lives so you will surely get what you hope for.
