Prayer Includes Listening

September 01, 2021

Adam and Danielle lead a house church in Apple Valley, California. Recently, they got together with two other families who are also leading house churches in the area. As they prayed together for direction and power, the Lord answered clearly. Danielle shared, “As we prayed, I felt the Lord say that we were supposed to have a youth event. He just gave us one simple step but as we followed that, He told us more to do. Then He told us that the kids would lead it and that it would be a summer event.”

Adam continued, “1 Peter 3:15 became the foundation scripture: ‘But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.’ We spent time teaching the youth why they believe what they believe so that when hurting youth came to the event, they would have answers to give to them.”

Finally, Danielle reminded the youth that not every young person lives in a house of prayer as they do, but she gave them tools that would help them minister to every youth at their event. Prayer laid the foundation for them to be able to reach many youth!
