Tonight we are continuing in our Spiritual Disciplines series with a "guest" teacher, our very own Youth Coach, Ken Thomas! This week's focus will be on the topic of prayer as one of the means through which God has made a way for us to draw closer to Him. Ken will be sharing his own experiences and journey in this particular area, while inviting students to consider how they can utilize this powerful gift in connecting with God on their own.

Here are some of the key passages that we'll be studying together, so please take the opportunity read them over as you pray over our time as a youth group. Meditate on them, use them as a topic of conversation in following up with your student(s), and know that we are praying for YOU as you continue to go to our Father in your own times of prayer this week.

-- Matthew 6:9-13
-- Psalm 40:1-3
-- Psalm 118:5

Please let us know how we can be praying for you, your family, and your students by either contacting me directly or reaching out to your students' youth coaches. We would be honored to pray for you, uniting us as a body, and finding new ways we can connect with you as part of this ministry.
