Lead your young people in a directed prayer. Tell them to pray silently each time you pause during the prayer. Say: “Thank you God for newness in our lives, such as new friends, or this new spring season, or another situation we’ll silently name. (Pause) Be with these friends we’ll silently name who need to know the newness of the Christian life, (Pause). Please help us renew our personal commitment to you (Pause). Thank you God for being with us when we feel unlovely and not so new. (Pause)” — Conclude by reading “The One who was sitting in the throne said, “Look! I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this because these words are true and can be trusted.” (Rev 21:5)
