I have been working on what is stuff for the new youth ministry year and in doing so I keep coming back to the idea that I need to know what the vision is or I can’t move forward, not only that I can’t even pray effectively because all of my prayers are just generalities.
So I have started praying for the vision. Lord, show me what your goal, your vision is for this ministry this year and what do I need to do now to join in that vision. Then as things begin to get clearer I will start praying the vision.
But instead of doing this in a vacuum I am inviting my upperclassmen to do the same. I am inviting them to pray and ask God what his vision is, and then in a couple of weeks we will get together and discuss the vision that God has given them. Then we will start praying that vision together.
Pretty telling that this is a new thing for me. Looks like I need to a better view of prayer.
