Praying For An Hour

This update about LBCC comes a few weeks late.

Way back on August 14th Kimy, Pastor Sean, Juan-David, and I got together on campus to pray and worship. Kimy brought her guitar and we prayed, worshiped, and interceded for the campus.

Praying For An Hour

Back when I was a sophomore in college I got connect with Casey Bombacie who was a youth pastor at the time in San Diego. He is the first person to teach me how to pray for an hour. He gave me a prayer card that leads you through the Lord’s Prayer and it really changed my relationship with God and obviously prayer life! I committed to doing this almost every day for quite a season.

Well, it was fun to teach the team at LBCC how to pray though the card today. We talked about the importance of proactive prayer.

Proactive Prayer

There is quite a difference between proactive praying and reactive praying. Most people pray for 5min when something bad happens to them or a loved one. But hardly anyone, especially when young, sits down to pray in proactive ways for the Kingdom of God to come in certain areas or people.

Today we talked about what we want to pray for on campus in proactive ways – where do we want to see God come in power and start to change things. Then we prayed and sang right there in the middle of campus.

We are so anticipatory of the first day of outreach when we meet new students – September 4th!
