Praying for the future of youth

By the CFCA Prayer Team

Maykel of Nicaragua hopes to be an entrepreneur someday. In India, Rosy dreams of being a police officer. Industrial engineering is the path to which Edwin in Bolivia is called.

Many teens and young adults are partnering with CFCA sponsors to achieve their dreams and change the world for the better. As we celebrate International Youth Day on Aug. 12, let us recognize those young people who soon will be taking the reigns of adulthood and leading the world to a brighter future.

For a glimpse of those students with whom we are partnering in this endeavor, go to www.walkwiththepoor.org. Read their stories and pray with us that they achieve their goals.

Please pray:
Gracious God, you see your children growing up in an unsteady and confusing world. Show them that your ways give more life than the ways of the world. Help them to accept setbacks, not as a measure of their worth, but as a chance for a new start. Give them strength to maintain their faith in you and keep alive their joy in your creation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

International Youth Day – You can!

Today is International Youth Day – a day designated to draw attention to youth issues worldwide.

Recently, youth from the Kansas City area created this video to share with other teens why it’s important to care about people living in developing countries and why it’s important to help: because teens CAN make a difference.

We hope you enjoy their video!

We can all make a difference. How are you involved in global poverty issues? Let us know!
