Mt Wellington Community Church


Recently we have been hearing a lot in the media about the pressures on young people today. Mental health seems to be on top of the rather formidable list. So as a faith community what should our response be? PRAY I hear you say; well you are right! It is up to us to pray for the young people in our church. We need to bring them before the Lord. Sometimes they can seem a bit like nameless mini people. Their appearances change so quickly, and they can sometimes just stick to themselves. There is a lot of temptation and peer pressure around so we can pray: 2 Timothy 2:22 Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

Let us continually pray for them and lift them up to the Lord by name.
