We all know that prayer should be a priority, yet it is something that most of us struggle with. Here at YFC, we are no different, so for that reason we are making a real effort to intertwine it in everything we do.
Each Thursday, we have a weekly prayer meeting that takes place in the office from 9-9.30am. Anyone is welcome to attend our prayer meeting and it is always a great encouragement when others join us. On rare occasions this meeting is postponed but we share those occasions on Twitter and Facebook.
As a team, we also pray at other points, as well as having a prayer board in the office which features everything about our work, our trustees, supporters and colleagues within the wider world of YFC whom we are praying for.
We don’t want to stop there and we are introducing two new initiatives. The first is a Prayer and Pizza evening for young people aged 11-18 to gather and pray for their generation. The first of these evenings will be on Thursday 10th March at the YFC Office from 6 -7pm. Whilst not essential, it is useful to know beforehand if people are coming. You can let us know by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org Young people will get the added bonus of claiming that eating Pizza is a spiritual discipline!
It would be unfair for the adults to miss out so on Monday 29th February from 7.30-9pm we are holding our first Coffee, Prayer and Presence evening. This evening will be a time to pray for the work of YFC Gloucestershire and listen to what God would say to the organisation. At the next meeting we will focus on plans to expand our work in Gloucester and explore our vision. The prayer will be accompanied by great tea and coffee.
We will look to run both prayer meetings once a term.
