It’s All About God

One of the many different meetings we get to have here on campus is prayer group. It's a time when your hall gets together and takes just fifteen minutes to share prayer requests, a short devotion, and then all pray together. It is one of the most meaningful times on campus. Well, this year I am a one of the prayer leaders on my hall, and I really wanted to have a theme that the girls on my hall could share for our prayer group. I was praying and thinking very hard about what it should be.

It wasn't until Sunday night when the Proclaim team sang "It's All About God" that God laid this burden on my heart. When the team started singing, my mind immediately jumped to John 3:30 which says, "He must increase, but I must decrease." This is what I want to take as my personal challenge, and I also want to challenge you. This spiritual walk that we live day in and day out is all about God. We get so wrapped up in ourselves that we forget what we were made for. God made us to glorify Himself. When we live for ourselves, we are not doing our job as Christians. We miss out on God's blessing in our lives.

There are so many little things we could do to live for God. Obey the rules that your parents or teachers have set in place. Maybe sit with that kid who is eating lunch by himself. Help your siblings with their homework. Just always remember to keep God your number one focus. When you focus on Him and not on yourself, your problems become so much less significant. As you go through this school year, just remember it's all about God.

    John, the prayer groups are amazing! It’s a time where the entire campus spends 15 minutes just praying. Think about what a change that could be with so many students all praying to God at the same time! All of the halls split up into different groups, and we will sing songs, gives praises, and pray for each others’ requests. It’s a time where you really get to know the people you’re with, and you grow closer together because you see God work in such amazing ways all year long.

    Thanks for your post, Megan. That song really spoke to me too. I just sat there crying during the whole thing because I know that I can get side-tracked so easily. We really need to pray that our student body will live not for themselves but for God Who is the Giver of life and made us for His glory. Like Pastor McBride said, we should live with God’s best interest in mind and the best interest of all the lost who are dying without hearing the gospel.

    Thank you Megan for sharing. Im a freshman this year and I enjoy prayer group. Im actually involved in more then one prayer group because I can’t get enough of it! It’s only a month into school, but im growing everyday in my walk with Him. I think that’s a wonderful idea to make a theme for your prayer group; im going to suggest that as well, but what would be a better theme than “It’s All About God”?! Thank you again.
