Our Engage team at Christ In Youth believes that it is important to consistently engage your students’ hearts and minds with what is happening around the world. We also believe in the power of prayer. We have created a free weekly resource that you can use as a programming element during your youth group meeting times. You can also visit this site regularly for updates to see how God is answering our collective prayers to affect change in the hurting places of the world. Would you join with us in prayer? Would you join with us in engaging a generation of students’ hearts and minds with what is happening around them and the power of their God to do something about it?

How Pray for Turpin FamilyPDF Download
It can be difficult to pray like Christ for unspeakable cruelties that happen in our world.
Our hearts have been broken for the 13 siblings rescued from an allegedly abusive home in California (http://wapo.st/2rsQCfb).
Lord, we first praise you for taking action in this situation with these children. Thank you for the courage you instilled in a youthful heart to speak up for her siblings.
It’s going to be a long road of recovery for these children. Lord, please be with them and heal them physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Jesus, please guide the doctors and nurses looking after the Turpin kids. Please give their hearts strength to represent your amazing love.
Lastly, this is the most difficult prayer, Lord. Please send your Holy Spirit to flood the hearts of David and Louise Turpin. May they find grace and forgiveness in your eyes. Jesus, soften our anger and scorn and remind us that they are your children too.
It’s in your son’s name, Jesus, we pray and find our hope,
