Pray for Encouragement

Please join with us in praying for the young people within the Furness Deanery.

The Journey’s vision is to see every young person within the Furness area have an opportunity to explore the Christian faith, journey with it and respond to it.

Highlight of last month

We (Vic, Kristin and Mattias) went to the National Youthwork Gathering in Birmingham. It was a fantastic weekend and we were all inspired by new ideas and new dreams. We made lots of new contacts and we were reminded about why we do what we do! We were challenged about the culture around us and there was some great advice about helping young people deal with anxiety. We enjoyed being spiritually refreshed, having time off in a city and had a great street party led by Tearfund.

Prayer Theme for the month

Paul encouraged Timothy in 1 Timothy 4.12 “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” We want to create opportunities for young people to lead and be an example. Pray for all those in our groups who have leadership potential and for opportunities to develop and encourage them in their leadership skills. This month we have listed each of the adult leaders/ volunteers/supporters by name. Pray for each of them that they will be an example.
