Youth for Christ Roxboro Praises & Pleas 1/6/11

Youth for Christ Roxboro Praises & Pleas   1/6/11
Jesus: "Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men."    Mark 1.17

Praises:   Yes, Lord, when we follow, You make many become fishers of men.  YFCR student leaders work with younger children at My Life Matters clubs; church groups attend Equipper Camps to learn to lead intentional lives for You; YFCR volunteers spend hours training to make every game and conversation count; YFCR board members are using this weekend to train to be better YFCR servants; and not only do YFCR staff spend days and nights deliberately loving teens, but Tim speaks in a different pulpit each week and takes discipleship training to YFC Nicaragua this month; in his spare time, Brett fishes for souls on the PCC campus.  Truly, Lord, You have made fishing for men our passion.

Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch."       
When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish              
that their nets began to break. Luke 5.4,6

Pleas:  Dearest God, You are so patient with us.  Never stop teaching our staff, volunteers, board members, supporters, children and their families as You continually haul us hand over hand toward Yourself.  As we experience You drawing us, make us fish like You.  Lord, in this new year, please direct our nets once again.  Help us find the lost children and hurting families down in deep water where we can’t see.
