Hello ladies, I need some prayer. This year I felt God calling me to be one of the female youth leaders for the youth group at my church. It has truly been amazing. He's blessed me through the teens so much. For the month of April I will be leading the lessons on Wednesday nights for the girls in the youth group. I'm only 20 so it hasn't been long since I was one of the girls attending youth group. My life is far from perfect. I don't have experience with teaching. But, I know these are all things God can use. I love these girls. I have a passion to pour into their lives. I was just hoping that some of you ladies could be praying that God would use me for His purpose. That he would give me the words to say. I love you all! Thank you!

Respond to This Prayer Request

  • March 3, 2015

    I'll be praying for you! I'm 21 as well and very involved with the youth in my home church. I am in college, so I'm not the actual leader, but I help out as much as I can...I chaperone trips and lead them in Bible studies sometimes. I don't have much experience either, and sometimes it shows. I've come away from Bible studies sometimes feeling like nothing got through to the kids, and sometimes feeling like the studies went great. What I've come to realize is that though they do want your words and your prayers and your wisdom, the thing they desire and appreciate most is your time. Teenage girls have a knack for building really strong walls, and I've discovered that sometimes scripture and Bible studies alone can't break those walls down. I've had a few girls that responded more to me when I took them shopping, took them to a movie, or just hung out with them than they ever did in a Bible study. Once they earn your trust, they'll listen to you as much as you listen to them, and this is where Christ's light shines through...through the cracks He's helped you make in their walls.

    God is faithful! He's given you this passion for a purpose. "You were made for the place where your real passion meets compassion, because there lies your real purpose." {Ann Voskamp} He will use your passion to create miracles, and He will most certainly give you the words to say!

    I will be praying for you! I'm 20, and have lead a group of teens in small groups every week too. I know it's hard, and there are times when we don't feel smart enough, or good enough to be an example.. but God's grace is enough! God has put passion into your heart, and he will most definitley do the rest! You are not alone (:
