Kings Keep Prayer Initiative

As most of you know by now, we are in the middle of Lent, a time when we as a church are focusing on our pursuit of God through spiritual disciplines and asking for God to move in our lives and in the lives of our friends in a powerful way. It's also a time where we are dedicating ourselves to pray for children and youth in our city. At multiple prayer gatherings, many of us who help lead ECV have sensed pretty strongly that God wants to do something beautiful in the youth of this city, and he wants us to be a part of it.

This Thursday, April 14th, Kings Keep is hosting a gathering of multiple churches throughout New Haven to pray for young people (a group they're referring to as the '4-14 window', people between the ages of 4 and 14) around the world. Kings Keep is a ministry that reaches out to at-risk youth in a few of the rougher neighborhoods in our city. A few ECVers are deeply involved with Kings Keep, and really good things are happening through their ministry. The event on Thursday will be a combination of prayer and worship (I'll be helping lead worship), and the prayers will be oriented toward blessing what God wants to do in the lives of children in the city and abroad, which fits perfectly into what we've been hoping for as a church during this season. I would encourage you to come and join hands in prayer with us and with other local communities this Thursday. God loves when His people are unified, so together, let's ask for transformation in the lives of children this Lent.
