Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

A Theology of Sickness and Healing
The Healing Prayer Model
From Vince Johnson, Pastor for Outreach, North Campus
Standing in the Lower Commons of the Minnesota State Capitol today, Franklin Graham led thousands of us in praying to our great God according to Nehemiah’s prayer:
This Spring, we are inviting the North Campus to join us in a special prayer focus for the next generation. You can use the booklet available in this PDF to pray that the gospel will bear fruit in the lives of the children who worship with us; we long for each one to find their hope and joy in Jesus!
The bookmark (available as a PDF) offers an outline for children to learn to pray through four themes in the "ACTS" acrostic.
- Adoration: "I love you" prayers
- Confession: "I'm sorry" prayers
- Thanksgiving: "Thank you" prayers
- Suplication:"Please" prayers
This prayer bookmark accompanies the Lord, Teach Us to Pray curriculum from Children Desiring God, by Sally Michael.
The following questions have been prepared to accompany the Prayer Week sermon on January 2/3, “The Four-Fold Fuel of Prayer” (Psalm 17). The questions can be used for discussion in small groups or for personal reflection.
- I Am Innocent (present, vv. 1–5)
- You Are Faithful (past, vv. 6–9)
- They Are Guilty (present, vv. 10–14)
- I Shall See You (future, v. 15)
Main Point: Past promises, a present hunger, and a future hope fuel our prayers.
From Todd Rasmuson, Pastor for Global Outreach
