Several Activities(B) - 4 - The Youths

86 youths were gathered on 13th July for an Overnight Prayer at the Cathedral. "Springs of Life" of Kibera, Mathare, Jerusalem, Githuaini, Dagoretti, Kangemi, Kawangware and UHLCathedral youths were there from 10pm of Friday to 7am of Saturday. They sang a lot during all the night, leaded by different music groups.
They prayed during the singing, and they prayed in the silence of the night.

The theme of this Overnight Prayer was ABLAZE. Pastor Carlos was invited to speak about ABLAZE and to lead the prayers. Several ABLAZE resources were taken from the ABLAZE web-site; the Topics for Prayers too.
Every one received a manila-paper-bracelet with a red-heart to write the names of five (5) non-Christian friends and to pray for them. All were remembered about their Baptism, when the Holy Spirit started a fire in their hearts with water and the Word.
(In the picture: At the Baptism font, the Bible and the hands with the bracelets; you can see some names written in the bracelets.)
ABLAZE: PRAYING to the Lord of the Harvest (The Gospel of the Last Sunday: Luke 10:2), LCMS World Mission, in collaboration with its North American and worldwide partners, will share the Good news of Jesus with 100 million unreached or uncommitted people by the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017.
All youths will continually pray for their friends and will try to bring them to Christ.
