Mountain Movers Prayer Fellowship -May 2014

First of all, I ask you to pray for everyone.

Ask God to help and bless them all, and tell God how thankful you are for all of them. 1 Timothy 2:1 (CEV)

In lower income countries like Indonesia and India less than half of the high school aged students attend school. By comparison, in North America nearly all teenagers are enrolled in school. These are formative years. Mustard Seed teachers forge character, inspire creativity and nurture leadership in their students.

Yuni was sponsored into a Mustard Seed high school as an older teen. At graduation she said, “From the challenges of wrong choices I have made, I have truly found the meaning of God’s love. I will sometimes fail, but I will never give up. I want to continue to chase my dream. I have chosen to follow God. My heart wants to tell everyone around me about His love and His kindness, and let them know that they can have a future too.”

Pray with us for teenagers. That they would have Godly teachers to guide and nurture them.

Thank you for your prayer support. In this month's prayer fellowship we have included:

Prayer for our site leaders

Prayer for teachers-in-training

Prayer for our leadership team

Prayer for teenagers like Yuni
