Fresh Start Part 3

We finished this week the final part of the Fresh Start series focusing even more this week on prayer. We spent the night worshiping through song and praying for specific areas including: praying for each other in the room, lost friends, teachers and administrators, and for ourself in taking a stand for Christ this school year. After that I got the students who had graduated high school and are transitioning into college/jobs and college ministry to sit in chairs up front. I took a moment to encourage and challenge them and then we had a time for anyone who wanted to could pray over them individually. I challenged these students that they would cling to Jesus, stay firm in Him, and that they would allow God to direct their hearts, reading 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5

Finally, brethren, pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it did also with you; and that we will be rescued from perverse and evil men; for not all have faith. But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. We have confidence in the Lord concerning you, that you are doing and will continue to do what we command. May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ.
