Warrambui 50th Anniversary Prayer Email
View this email in your browser

It was 50 years ago this year, that visionary young members of our NSW Lutheran church purchased 120 hectares of land, 45 kilometres from the centre of Canberra and began the history of what we have come to know as the Warrambui Retreat and Conference Centre.

Please join me in prayer as we journey through this year of celebration and reflection. Prayers will be distributed on a fortnightly basis to year's end and I would encourage you to share these prayers with your community, family, friends and others.

Prayer No 10 - Prayer for our Young People

In this 50th year celebration in the founding of Warrambui we pray for young people.

Heavenly Father – You see young people growing up in an unsteady and confusing world.  Many young people are crippled by the pressures of our increasingly digital culture where pornography, cyber-bullying and online relationships are increasing.

Many come from broken families; there is a rise in anxiety and depression within this generation.  Sadly many have lost their way in life and heartbreakingly do not know how to find their way to hope, joy, peace and love.

Heavenly Father – we pray for young people to know that Jesus is the way in life’s journey.  We ask – use us to lovingly show them in our words and actions that Your ways give real Life than the ways of the world. 

We thank you that we can progress forward in complete confidence because in Jesus You showed us enough of who and what You are, so that we can boldly trust You with our whole lives.

Forgive us when we consider young people too inexperienced to serve in the life of the church.  Forgive us when we think young people to be inept to have anything useful to say or of little value and just not worth listening to. Forgive us when we relegate young people to the church of tomorrow and deny them any real place in the church of today.

In the power of the Holy Spirit – enthuse and energise us to work and support young people so that they grow in faith and reach out to others with the Gospel.

Lord - we ask that you continue to bless the work and mission of Turning Point Ministries as it uses Warrambui as a base to grow young people and families in the Gospel.  May everything be for His praise and glory.
We humbly ask this prayer in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Note:  Prayers are based on books by David Clowes : ‘500 Prayers for All Occasions’ & ‘500 More Prayers for All Occasions’
