2 pray

See you at the pole

On September 23, 2015 thousands of Jesus followers will meet at the flag pole on school campuses around the world.

Within recent years of youth ministry in the Seventh-day Adventist Church there began a Prayer Movement in the early 2000’s.

In British Columbia there were attempts to build a community of prayer followers.

This fall in 2015, Adventist Youth will join the thousands around the Province to meet and pray. Some will coordinate a prayer gathering around their Academy Flag. Some are already engaged with See Youth at the Pole.

What make this year different is that there is a stirring in the hearts of young people who attended Mountain View Summer Camp with the desire to keep the connection with each other and with the Lord going. Several indicated a desire to be involved in supporting their peers spiritually.

See You at the Pole can be a neutral way to connect. Check out syap.com.

Pray for the young people of British Columbia and beyond to remember to pray, September 23, 2015.

Also remember 2Pray movement coming to the lower mainland, October 3, 2015.

Be prepared for being lifted up by our great and almighty God and His Son Jesus Christ.

From iPray to 2Pray

Recently I spent some time on the phone with James Black our North American Division Youth Director chatting about the prayer movement that is catching on across the US and Canada.

For more than 10 years James has hosted a prayer conference for youth. In 2012 he began to use the “iPray” wording to describe what was happening at the Just Claim It events.

Most recently he found out “iPray” was being used by other denominations and thought it was in the best interest for our purposes to change the name to “2Pray”

I like “2Pray” When I say it, it means I have to (2) pray. I also am reminded that where two or three are gathered in His name He is in the midst.

If there was ever a time to need community the time is now. I have a deep sense of my need to be praying with others. Coming to Father or practicing His presence when I am out and about. And to make it known I want to be stronger in praying with others wherever appropriate.

I want to great others with God’s blessing.

This prayer movement whatever it is going to be called is stretching me to draw deeper with God and others on our spiritual journey.
