How to Pray for VBS
Pleasant City Church is dedicated to Vacation Bible School. Already, we are hard at work preparing for this special week and excited about sharing the message of Christ and His love with the kids!
We know, however, that no matter how great our efforts, it takes prayer to make a real difference in the children’s lives–prayer for God’s blessings, for His Holy Spirit to move, and for Christ’s love to be shown completely and unconditionally to the kids and their families. Let’s join together and persevere in prayer for our VBS. Use the prayer points below as a guide.
*Pray that workers will understand that their greatest contribution to VBS will not be how well they present a Bible story, sing a song or make a snack, but how well they build relationships with the kids, teens and adults attending VBS.
*Pray that VBS leaders will see that the true evangelistic potential of VBS is not just the week of VBS but the weeks that follow as relationships are built through continued connections.
*Ask God to give VBS leaders a vision for intentional follow-up that goes beyond a “thanks for attending” postcard.
*Thank God for all the unchurched participants. Ask God to give our volunteers the ability to see the unchurched families participating in VBS as a precious gift that must be cherished and cared for not only during the week of VBS but every day and week afterwards.
*Thank God for the professions of faith that will be made during VBS. Ask Him to help church leaders disciple these new believers well.
VBS doesn’t just happen. It requires enormous work and resources. But most of all it requires enormous prayer. The results are worth it! If you would like to join the Prayer Team for VBS contact the church office at 704-487-6415 or email Corby Haneline.
