How to pray - a day for youth workers, with Pete Grieg

This year at the National Youth Ministry Weekend we are creating a fantastic opportunity to start your event journey early by reconnecting to the call of Jesus that underpins our work and our life.

Prayer is often the missing centrepiece to youth ministry. We all agree on it’s critical importance, and yet for so many reasons, it’s the one thing we don’t quite manage to prioritise. Both in our own lives as leaders, and in our work with young people, talking to God is so often the thing we don’t quite get around to.

Deep down we all want to be better at this. And this year at the National Youth Ministry Weekend, we’re making some special time to learn how, with one of the best and most experienced communicators on prayer in the world. Pete Grieg, the founder of 24-7 Prayer, has devoted his entire life to praying, and helping others to do so. His latest book, How to Pray, is intended as a simple guide to developing a real habit of prayer in the midst of our busy lives.

The National Youth Ministry Weekend early day will provide both an opportunity to receive powerful, practical teaching on prayer, and the space to put some of that teaching into practice. We’ll look at how to embed prayer as a feature of our everyday lives as leaders, and how we can practically integrate more prayer into our work with young people.

We believe in a God of infinite possiblities. Together, let’s learn to ask him to fulfil them.
