Prayers for Evangelical Believers:
by Ed Vasicek
Lord, thank You for the wonderful ministry of the AWANA Youth Clubs. The acrostic, "Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed" is based upon Your Word in 2 Timothy 2:15, "Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth." Thank You for the hundreds of verses that these young ones have memorized. We know this will provide a good foundation for a solid Christian life and we pray that our AWANA youth would choose to build upon that foundation.
Thank You, our God, for the many adults and teens who have volunteered to help lead our clubs. We ask You to bless our commander, our secretary, our directors, game director, store organizers, leaders, listeners, teachers and the many helpers who assist in so many areas, like music or crafts. And thank You, Father, for the parents, guardians and concerned adults who bring the children to the club. Thank You for the support and encouragement they have been to these youngsters.
And so, precious Lord, we ask You to bless our AWANA club and use it to Your glory. Grant us peace and harmony, enthusiasm and wisdom and build spiritual depth among the kids, help them make new friends, and grant our volunteers a sense of fulfillment in serving You. We pray that, like the Psalmist, our kids would be able to say, "I have more insight than all my teachers, for I meditate on your statues" (Psalm 119:99).
Bless AWANA headquarters, the individual AWANA missionaries and the over one million children around the world who participate in AWANA every week, I pray in Jesus' Name, Amen.
