Fusion Oakwood Middle School has been tracking with the Church during the IE series. Beginning in the Kickstart Room last week, we had the opportunity to worship with Travis Kiers and the new High School Worship Ministry Team. It is amazing seeing High School Students INVEST in Middle School students in a positive way. Our challenge to the students regarding INTERCEDE was to break up in School groups, write names of friends that need to hear about Jesus, and pray for them specifically.
Colossians 1 was our guide in prayer last week:
9 For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, 11being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light. 13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
What if we spent time each day, specifically INTERCEDING with that?
My prayer is that this generation gains knowledge of God’s will, wisdom beyond their years, learns to please God and bear fruit for the Kingdom of God. I also pray that students begin to strategically build relational bridges in order to bear the weight of the Gospel of Jesus. Our teenagers have so much INFLUENCE at this time in their life for the Kingdom of God. INTERCEDE with me for this generation!
