New School Year Prayers

Skateboarding let's us connect and share Jesus with others.
What's up One Love Skate blog readers?
     I'm excited about this new school year. 

I love how Paul starts his letter to the Corinthians: "To the church of God that is in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints together with all those who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, both their Lord and ours..." (1 Corinthians 1:2, emphasis added). 

In Jesus Christ, there is a supernatural connection with people from all types of different walks of life. It's fun to see Jesus connect people through One Love Skate across denominational lines because of our identity as His children.

One of the best things you can do to support the mission of One Love Skate is to be a faithful prayer (2 Corinthians 1:11). Will you pray these things at least once or twice a week for this new 2012-2013 school year? 

Pray for:

1.) Revival on Maui 
- That whether through those who are part of One Love Skate or another part of God's church, God will bring many people to live out His One Love on Maui in this upcoming school year.
That One Love would be redefined in our culture to mean God's love shown to us through Jesus Christ.

2.) Favor
- That God would give us favor as we share the Gospel different places in different ways with all kinds of different people. 
- That He'd give new opportunities and Ephesians 3:20 action.

3.) Fruit
- That many would come to know Jesus Christ through conversations started because of the One Love Skate tracts, t-shirts, stickers, and decks.
 -That Jesus Christ's transformed people will be used to transform Maui by the power of His Holy Spirit.

Some recent evidences of God's grace on One Love Skate:
I've been skating Keo on Tuesdays recently with some Upcountry youth, and I love the bridge that skateboarding can build for the Gospel by opening up opportunities to connect with people. One Love Skate merchandise is being worn and shared all around Maui, and I received a phone call last week with a neat testimony about how a One Love Skate deck given to a student by his youth leaders on the Big Island was refreshing to a student spiritually and brought him back to church. Seek The Most High continues, and people are being encouraged to get in God's Word and feed on His truth. See #SeekTheMostHigh on Twitter.

Prayer is influential and very important (2 Corinthians 1:11). Thanks for supporting what God's doing through One Love Skate by your prayers for revival, favor, and fruit!

Grace & Peace,
