The Pray for Me Campaign

Join Signal Crest UMC in rallying around the next generation through prayer.

Signal Crest & the Pray for Me Campaign

Signal Crest started the pray for me campaign in August of 2014.  We started this program as a way for our congregation to rally around the next generation.  Each year, our students pick 3 new adults from 3 different generations to pray for them for one school year.

Learn more about the pray for me program and how you can be involved below.  Then, be sure to check out this video from our very first Pray for Me Launch! 


Who?

Students from 6th-12th grades, college students, and adults within the congregation in three different generation (20-30's, 40-50's, 60's+).

What?

3 adults from 3 different generations will pray scripture over 1 student for 1 school year.  With the help of the  Pray for Me Prayer Guide, adults will strategically pray the 7 essentials over over our students. Those things are: wisdom, favor, speech, conduct, love, faith, and purity.  These things are drawn from Luke 2:52 and 1 Timothy 4:12.

And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.

Luke 2:52

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity.

1 Timothy 4:12

When?

Prayer Champions will pray scripture for their student over the course of a school year.

Sign ups to be a Prayer Champion and to receive a Prayer Champion will begin June 1, 2017 and continue through August 31, 2017. 

Our Pray for Me Matching Day will be September 10, 2017 at 10am in the Crest Center.  At this event students will ask 3 adults to be their Prayer Champion for the school year!

Why?

80% of teens raised in the church will disengage by the time they are 29.  We want to change this!  The Pray for Me Campaign creates the opportunity for teens to connect naturally with adults who will pray for them.

We want every student involved in the Pray for Me Campaign to be equipped with everything they need to remain rooted in their faith and connect in the church.

How?

Each student invites three adults from three different generations to be their Prayer Champions for a school year.  The student's invitation builds a bridge from their generation to the next.  This creates a web of intergenerational relationships that support students through middle and high school and beyond.

Prayer Champions will pray scripture for their student using the Pray for Me Prayer Guide, a tool designed to help adults effectively pray the scriptures over their students for the course of a school year.
