    Default All Night Prayer Meeting

    KK had one, but he didn't put it in this forum, didn't want to the manly room to be left out

    Praise the Lord.

    I have the best youth leaders and teenagers in the world!

    Last night I hosted my very first all night prayer meeting. It was great. We had a really good group of about 24 people. 5 of those were youth leaders and the rest were teens including all of my seniors and several others from other grades as well. We had a great time of fellowship and prayer.

    We started out around 10pm with a small snack type meal. I guess I wouldn't call it a meal, but it was very good. It was ground beef in cheese sause on nachos with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and beens. My wife called it "Super Nachos!" We ate and fellowshiped for a while and then prayed. It was really good and everyone had a chance to pray. We prayed until just after midnight. After prayer we watched "Facing the Giants." We also had some time to play and fellowship. Some of the guys played XBox while I and 4 others played Monopoly. I haven't played that game in so long and it was awesome. I also played a baseball video game, I think it was called Slugfest - not to realistic and somewhat annoying. I am not into crazy video games. I love the very realistic baseball and football ones, but don't dig the ones where you can beat up the pitcher and then back flip to first base. I played and had some fun, but only made it through about 4 innings. :-)

    After that, around 3:30am, we went to prayer again. It was really good because (if I can remember the time line right) we had a time of testimonies first. I am a strong believer that if you talk about what God is doing in your life it helps to solidify it in your heart! I started by sharing my testimony, some of the teens are new enough that they had never heard it, and then I had all the seniors give their testimony. It was really sweet. God did some ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC things during our youth conference and this was the time to share those things and rejoice together in them! After the testimony time, we all prayed again. We prayed for our church in several very specific areas, we prayed for some teens' requests who were not at the meeting, and we prayed for each other. We also PRAISED GOD for some very specific things that He has done for us in the recent weeks. :-) It was great.

    This took us up to almost 4:45 or 5:00am. After that, we finished the Monopoly game we started earlier, and some of the teens watched a DVD of a preacher challenging us in the area of our relationship with God. Then some boys played some more video games while my wife and I made pancakes and bacon. MAN were those good. After I closed the meeting with a final word of prayer, almost everyone had a very good breakfast. :-) My cat Chief Wahoo ate my nachoes so I was ready for those pancakes. :-)

    It was really a great meeting and I look forward to next years' already. :-) Someday, I am going to have a basement or garage, or both, and we'll really pack it out. :-) It was good though with who we had. I wanted teens to come who would really take the meeting serious. Youth activities are fun and we all do enjoy goofing off, but I wanted kids who would take our prayer time serious and really get ahold of God and it worked out wonderfully.

    Thank God for Jesus Amen! Thank God for the opportunity to serve Him and to serve His people. I have the best youth leaders and the best teens in the WORLD!
