DAY 1 - Pray for Your Best School YEAr
Pastor Joel Jenkins
YOUTH PASTOR, WORD OF FAITH, SOUTHFIELD MI
Today we are praying that we have our best school year. Now, I know the school year is underway and for some of you, the school year isn’t off to the best start. But I’ve got good news - the year isn’t over yet. There’s still time for the year to turn around and not just turn around, but for your year to be great. I want you to think about something. The most memorable stories or games are the ones with the most improbable finishes. I remember a few years ago there was a football game where the Michigan Wolverines were playing the Michigan State Spartans and on the final play of the game, the Spartans forced a turnover and scored a game winning touchdown as time expired. The game was great if you were rooting for the Spartans but it didn’t start out well for them and at the end they were victorious.
Well, that’s what we are praying for you today - that whatever obstacles stand in your way, that they will become great stories as you overcome them. The roadblocks will become steppingstones. The Bible says in Jeremiah 29 that God knows the plans that He has for you. They are plans for good and not disaster and to give you a future and a hope. In other words, good things are in your future and your best days are right in front of you. So today we pray that we are led by God to the great days He has in store for us. God bless.
