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?

On Wednesday, unusual reports of snowfall in northern Florida (nbcnews.com/news/us-news/florida-sees-snowfall-winter-weather-cold-air-grips-east-coast-n834236) and a promise of extreme cold in the coming week stiffened our faith.

Jesus, we thank you for the calm you bring in the storm, the warming light in the dark and the ease you give burdened hearts. We praise you as you hold onto us through this winter.
In the name of Jesus, we pray,
