"A New Birth to a Living Hope - Prayer Resources from Steve Janco
Steve Janco provides a simple three-part prayer format suitable for use by individuals, families, or small groups gathered online: Scripture reading, litany of intercession, concluding prayer. The resource includes multiple options for each part: four scripture readings, three litanies, and twelve concluding prayers—allowing the prayer to be prayed periodically with variations or with a different focus. Apart from the scriptures and the Litany of Saints (adapted), the texts are newly written. The first page of the resource provides an introduction and some additional information.
Visit the NFCYM website for a variety of events, resources, prayer experiences, and webinars aimed at youth and youth leaders. https://nfcym.org/covid19/
