I've noticed a distrubing trend among the young people at my church. They simply aren't there anymore, and those who are, often do not want to be.
I'm not sure the reason for this (although I have my opinions), and I'm not sure of the solution. I have no opinion about that but I'm pretty sure it isn't another program that they need.
What I do know is that whatever that solution is, it is worthless if we don't pray. I'm not sure there is a substitute for that. I'm not talking about the "God be with them and bless them" kind of prayer. I'm talking about people who are willing to battle hell for the souls of our kids. I think it just may take that. It may mean some repentance on our part. We sometimes make it difficult to see the real Jesus through the mess we make.
If you want to join me, meet me at church on Wednesdays at 5:30 at the altar. We will not eat. We will not talk. We will not teach. We will not fellowship. We will simply pray like we mean it. And we'll do it until we see change. All are welcome.
