Pray

REJOICE ALWAYS, PRAY WITHOUT CEASING, GIVE THANKS IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES; FOR THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS FOR YOU.

1 THESSALONIANS 5:16-18

We are thankful to serve a good and loving God and believe in giving Him praise and seeking Him through prayer.  If you would like to engage in this vital part of our ministry, we would love to have you pray for CEF Alaska and praise God for what He is doing in hearts across the state.  

ANCHORAGE/MATSU

 

          Praises:

  • Praise that Good News Clubs are open in 12 schools in JBER, Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer, and Wasilla.
     

  • Praise that we are seeing God working through three salvation decisions in the Orion club which just began.

  • Praise that God is opening doors for CEF local teens to evangelize and disciple children in Manokotak and Good News Bay this March and April.

  • Praise that we have the opportunity to train and equip teens this summer in a Christian Youth in Action (CYIA) in the Anchorage/Mat-Su area.

    Prayer Requests:

  • Pray that God will provide the workers and resources for Good News Clubs to open in every school on JBER, Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer, and Wasilla.

  • Pray that God will continue to open doors providing opportunities for local teens to evangelize in the rural villages.

  • Pray that God will use the CYIA training camp to equip local teens to share the Gospel and give them a burden for the lost children of Alaska.  

FAIRBANKS

  • Pray for the word to get out and more kids to come to clubs

  • Pray for lots of teens and helpers to be trained to meet the demand for clubs in our community.

MAILBOX CLUB

  • Praise for kids around Alaska desiring to learn more about Jesus

  • Pray for correct addresses to be found for kids who are wanting to receive mailbox club lessons

RURAL MINISTRY

  • Praise the Lord for the workers He is sending into the harvest

  • Pray that the Lord will cover the workers with good health and safety

  • Pray that the Lord will prepare the hearts of the children and youth to receive the truth of His Word and His gift of salvation

  • Pray that the Lord will raise up adults in the rural communities to disciple the children and youth in their faith and service to the Lord

  • Pray that the Lord will work all the logistics together for full, effective ministry

  • Pray that the Lord will bless to overflowing CEF fundraising efforts

Kenai Peninsula

  • Pray for our staff, that God would grant us creativity and clarity to accomplish the ministry He grants us

  • Pray for funding for the Kenai Peninsula chapter and that God would generously raise up monthly supporters.

  • Pray that God would continue to grant us favor and that we can serve our local churches well, equipping more churches and believers to reach our area for Christ.

  • Pray for our Good News Club teams.  These groups of adults and teens are on the frontlines in our schools on a regular basis.  They know the childre by name and they are seeing salvation come!  Pray they would be protected, energized, and filled with the love of God to keep pouring out to others.

MILITARY CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

  • Praise for the new security checks for volunteers.  I am one of the few volunteers fully vetted for childcare; this has made me a valuable resource and has opened opportunities for me to serve during several non-MCM/CEF ministries.  Our club numbers are small this year but God has made a way for Good News Clubs and Military Children’s Ministries to be a constant and helpful presence on JBER. 

  • Pray that this group of children will accept this truth that they were fearfully and wonderfully made by the Creator God and that His love for them is everlasting love and a costly love that He paid for with His life. 

  • Pray that God will bring more volunteers with a heart dedicated to serving military families.
