One of my (Matt McGill) best nights in youth ministry!
The idea was to design a creative prayer time for our students, a place where they could step away from their regular, busy lives and simply "BE" with God.

We created 15 different stations, each with a devotional, scripture, and activity. Going into the event, we felt that some of the activities were a little uncomfortable/risky, and maybe even cheesy. However, each station ended up being great (honest!) and the whole event was awesome. Sure, we'd make a few changes next time around, but everything went off really well.

We planned a 2 hour event. We went 30 minutes long, which was a drag. 90% of the students didn't complete all of the stations. When we do it again, we'll probably do a few less stations (not sure which one I'd cut...but we might combine stations 4 and 5) and plan for a three hour event.

Here is a quick overview of all the stations:
  • Be Ready - Getting started: gathering everyone to set the tone.
  • Be Still - identify the "static" in their lives that keep them from hearing God
  • Be Silent - duct tape over your mouth, Ecc 5, listening to God
  • Be Vocal - write out a prayer, read that prayer and a few psalms out loud
  • Be Loved - identity in Christ, lies of the enemy we believe about ourselves
  • Be Freed - nail it to the cross
  • Be Child-like - joy, delight, celebrate ... shoot 5 baskets, finger paint, eat a desert
  • Be Reverent - shoes off, lie on the grass, listen to a dramatic reading of scripture
  • Be Called - Jesus calling Peter, have you set down the net?
  • Be Light - praying for friends who don't know Jesus
  • Be Courageous - write a fear on a stone and throw it into the lake
  • Be Servant-hearted - Upper room foot washing...be washed, wash another
  • Be Compassionate - "Social justice" issues ... read them all, pick one to pray for
  • Be Reminded - Lord's Supper
  • Be Thankful - Identify something you are thankful for...write it on a white board and we take a picture
  • Be Together - chapel service

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
