Challenges for Prayer

Young people need prayer:

a) Christians in the churches. Pray that they have high standards of holy living and that spiritual leaders for the future might be raised up.

b) The disadvantaged. The gap is widening between the disadvantaged and the sophisticated, educated youth (also clearly along racial lines), hence the protests/riots in 2009. There are many challenges to reaching them effectively.

c) YWAM has a good ministry in motivating youth for evangelism and missions. CEF has a significant ministry to children through camps and Good News Clubs.

     For an additional 3 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
