National Day of Prayer for VBS

PRAYING FOR VBS

Sunday, May 18 is National Day of Prayer for VBS.  I will be praying for the churches in Georgia that will be hosting VBS this summer.  I hope your church will take time to pray for your VBS.  Some of the things I will be praying are:

1 –  that God will touch the hearts of those that need to serve in VBS to step up and volunteer,

2 –  that God will provide the funds and supplies needed for VBS,

3 – that God will prepare the hearts of those in the community that will be reached through the VBS,

4 – that God will give wisdom and discernment to the VBS Director and Pastor as they make plans and preparations for VBS,

5 – that God will show the Bible Study leaders how to effectively communicate the Bible truths each day,

6 – that God  will help those that come to VBS to know that His plan is for them to have a relationship with Jesus,

7 – that the VBS Celebration (Family Night) will provide witnessing opportunities, and

8 – that churches would follow up and continue the connections made through VBS.

Some of the ways you can encourage your church to pray for VBS are with a VBS Prayer Calendar, a VBS Prayer Walk through your church, a VBS Magnet to put on their refrigerator, a bookmark, or an armband with specific needs for your VBS  .How can I pray for your VBS?  Just send me an email at jcarter@gabaptist.org and let me know the dates of your VBS and specific prayer needs.  I count it an honor to pray for you as you lead in VBS this summer.
