Guerrillas of Grace

Our teacher this week is president and co-founder of Love146, an organization that combats child sex slavery & exploitation with the unexpected and restore survivors with excellence, Rob Morris.

He shared with us a prayer from the book, Guerrillas of Grace by Ted Loder. I went online and found this prayer by him also:

plunge me deep into a sense of sadness
at the pain of my sisters and brothers
inflicted by war,
that I may learn again to cry as a child
until my tears baptize me
into a person who touches with care
those I now touch in prayer:
victims of violence
of greed,
of addictions;
prisoners in ghettos,
in old age,
in sexism;
people with broken bodies,
with broken hearts,
with broken lives,
whom I remember now in silence before you
because I have too often forgotten them
in the shuffle of my fretful busy-ness.

Kingdom Night & FIGS Ministries

Hey! Here is a short video made by a friend of mine (who is not presently in YWAM, but has been in the past, and is partnering with us in local ministry). Ethan lives in the Denver area, and started this ministry with some youth from his church, and I've been blessed to work alongside him in reaching out to the people of Denver.
