TFC's Reliance on Prayer
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6
And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest." Luke 10:2
At TFC we believe that our work must be rooted in prayer. In prayer we meet with God and seek His wisdom and direction. In prayer we express our thanksgiving and our requests. In prayer we are renewed by God's Presence. We open and close each TFC staff meeting in prayer, we hold a monthly staff meeting dedicated solely to prayer, and we strive to develop prayerful teen leaders. We also rely on the prayer support of our TFC partners to sustain us. We know that God is faithful to listen and to guide. Praise God!
On this page we will post items that you can both pray for on a ongoing basis, as well as more specific requests. Thank you for partnering with us in this vital capacity!
