  4. 4. PAGE 4 June 2010 From Pastor Greg Help your teenagers stay connected to God A close relationship with God is both the core of our Christian life and our highest end as human beings. As we learn about God and develop intimacy with him, our faith morphs from a “practice” to a lifestyle. Worship and Bible study not only help us experience God, they strengthen us for life’s daily challenges. When Group Magazine recently surveyed 20,000 Christian teenagers about their priorities, “praying and developing a relationship with God.” was at the top. But many youth ministers were surprised by those survey results. “Kids’ actions communicate something different,” noted one youth minister. “They’re so busy…that it seems the first things to get dropped are the items listed as priorities.” Another wrote, “My teens struggle with prayer, and many tell me a relationship with God is hard, confusing, and at times, not relevant.” Taking time to “Be still, and know that I am God!” (Psalm 46:10) is challenging in our always-on- the-go culture. Kids are surrounded by noise—and have a lot of noise in their hearts. Distractions, worries, fears, and hurts often make a relationship with God more difficult, but they also make it more important. Kids look to their parents as examples of how to stay connected to God. If you’ve kept this relationship private, let your teenagers in on ways you stay in touch with God. Also share ways it has sustained you through life’s ups and downs, and assure your kids that the same will be true for them too. Dare 2 Share Ministries president, Greg Stier discusses staying connected through prayer: Prayer is emptied of its power when it’s for public show or word-count dependent. How fancy our prayers Search Institute researchers surveyed more than 7,000 sound doesn’t matter to God; it’s whether or not we kids in eight countries (including America) to gauge how actually believe he will answer our prayers. In James 1:6, teenagers around the world view their relationship with God tells us how a Christian should approach God in God. Some responses: prayer: “But when he asks, he must believe and not 55 percent of teens surveyed say their “spirituality” has grown stronger over the last few years, and 43 percent of U.S. kids doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, say they’re both spiritual and blown and tossed by the wind.” (NIV) religious.

Going Deeper On, Andy Blanks, Student Life’s resource development director, writes about lessons he learned by setting aside time for teenagers to connect with God When I led my youth group in a “spiritual disciplines” retreat awhile back, I was overwhelmed at the number of teenagers who, when given an opportunity, chose to spend meaningful time cultivating their relationship with Christ. Most teenagers took the time seriously, practicing a mix of some guided Scripture meditation and some in-depth study based on a study guide I had created for them. All in all, it was a great event, a time of spiritual recharging for kids and adults alike. Throughout the weekend, kids came up to me saying how much fun they had praying and listening. The main thing I learned is that the Holy Spirit is capable of moving in the lives of all Christians, even the most non-committed, spiritually distracted teenager. The key is that the Holy Spirit must be given room to move! That was the point of our weekend, to provide intentional room for an encounter. We made the time, and the Holy Spirit came through. I watched life-change happen before my eyes. I also learned that even though I talk the good talk about guiding teenagers deeper into their relationship with God, I had some significant-if-secret hesitations about how a weekend centered on “disciplines” would go over. Well, the kids proved me wrong at every turn. And this is one time I was glad to be proven wrong.
