Students & Prayer

This morning, I was able to be a part of a very special prayer circle.

One of the adults who has been very involved with FCA and the high school (in general) was diagnosed with cancer last year. He has battled it and was doing better til recently. Now, he is about to start a new form of treatment to try to slow things down. Well, he was at FCA this morning. It is always a blessing when he can make it to the school to be a part of things.

During the prayer time, one of the students asked if we could huddle around him for prayer. We had to stay some distance away due to his weakened immune system, but we had a circle of prayer for him. It was pretty cool.

It was encouraging to see that happen at a student led event. To see the students step up and go the extra mile.

Those are the moments I remember when someone asks me why I'm in youth ministry.
