To Be Like You

Who do you want to be like?  Do you look up to someone?
Does someone look up to you?



Is your hearts desire to follow Jesus?  To know more about Him?

Love the texture of the chalkboard. They need to come back!  (From: facebook.com/ukdjembe.drumming)







Pavement

Which way do I go?  Which road do I follow?  Is that a question you ask yourself? 


The Way - John 14


Is this the road you want to be on? 

People say that the road to hell  is paved with good intentions. 

The bible says . . .
Enter through the narrow gate, for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to
destruction, and there are many who enter through.
For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it
Matthew 7:13-14

Matthew 7:13-14

Can you pray for me?  These were words spoken today by two young men that stood up when they were told there was a Prayer Warrior in the room. 

They were not the only ones wanting and needing prayer.  

Weekly we provide an opportunity for the boys to write down their prayer requests. 

But to have someone actually place their hand on your shoulder and listen to you pour out your heart and then say the words that maybe you cannot say or don't know how to say is part of what 'Church' is all about.

But, our 'Church' doesn't have regular Prayer Warriors.  Our church is made up of a group of young men reaching out and searching that come to hear a Chaplain share a message of Hope. 

Our 'Church' needs you.  We need people that can come and
encourage and be a Prayer Warrior. 

It isn't only about Praying with a boy on Sunday.  It is about
joining us and becoming apart of this ministry.  It is about
putting the Ministries of Auto Mission on your Prayer List.

Would you join us today and become a Prayer Warrior?

If you attend church on Saturday night.  Or if you can miss one service every few weeks and come to join us you will be Blessed.  Just your presence is a
Blessing to our boys. 

Please email Slegan@yahoo.com 
if you can join us on a Sunday.

The service began as young men with very quiet and somber expressions filed in single file and found a seat.

As we watched them walk I wonder what they expect. I watch as new faces join the regular faces I see each week.

I smile and shake hands with the regulars. And I notice one is missing. One we won't see again. I voice a silent prayer for the sweet young man that left yesterday. I say a silent pray that God watches over him and protects him. I pray that he stays strong in his new found faith.

As the first video begins I smile as they bob their heads to the music. As they smile as they watch. I smile as the video shares a subtle message of faith and trust in God. And I silently thank God for directing us and helping us find videos that have a message and that speak in 'their' language.

For the last 2 1/2 years I have watched the faces come and go. I have watched and listened to the music that is prayed over and chose specifically to speak to this group of young men. A group that has been placed in a low security state prison facility.

Ours is a different kind of service. Ours is a different kind of congregation. Ours is a group searching for something. Many are not even sure what it is they are searching for.

But, we know. We know that it is the love of Jesus that they want. It is the love of Jesus that they need.

And even though sometimes it is hard. Even though sometimes it is a struggle. We go on. We continue. Every week we look forward to going to church.

We don't look forward to or expect to get fed in the usual way. Because we are the 'feeders' but, as we leave we realize each week we've been fed too.

When we read prayer requests like this . . .

"Lord, I ask for your forgiveness and to free all my sins. Lord, please forgive everything I've done. Please give me strength to do better."
and

"Dear heavenly father, I just ask you to help me take it one day at a time. Keep me strong and out of trouble. Amen.".




For it is my Fathers will that  everyone who sees his Son and believes on him should have eternal life- that I should raise him at the Last Day John 6:40

Prayer Requests

Dear Heavenly Father, I just ask you to help me take it one day at a time.  Keep me
strong and out of trouble.  So I can get my stage.
Amen.

I want to pray 4 a better life.  And I want to be closer to God and to be able to reach
my dreams.

God I am all yours. Do with me as you will.  Shape my life as you see fit.  I'm done fighting.
Show me your will.  Teach me the right way.  Help me give my all to you.  I need to change.
I need you Lord.

 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Matthew 19:14
New International Version (NIV)

And they come as little children.  Seeking love.  Seeking Acceptance.  Seeking Forgiveness


                                                                 Prayer Requests

God I am taking it slow. One day at a time.  Please I ask you to help me.  Control my feelings and emotions.  And my anger so I can stay out of trouble.  Lord. 

Lord I ask to  forgive me and to free me of my sins.  Lord, please forgive me for everything
I've ever done.
