Pray for VBS
Planning :: VBS is a huge undertaking. Pray for all of the details required in planning
and running VBS and for God to provide all the needed supplies, ﬁnances,
volunteers, energy and wisdom.
Relationships :: Pray that those involved will understand that their greatest
contribution to VBS may not be how well they teach, lead, or prepare, but how
well they build relationships with the kids, teens and adults attending VBS.
Pray for God-honoring relationships to be established.
Activities :: Pray that every activity will clearly communicate Jesus’ love and
redemption and teach these kids more about the truth of God and His Word.
Yielded hearts :: Pray that God would soften hearts and transform lives during VBS.
Ask God to allow the gift of salvation, which comes only through Jesus Christ, to
be received by both kids and adults.
Fellowship :: Pray for any kids or parents who are discouraged, lonely, or struggling to
really connect to experience the fellowship of believers. Pray for them to feel
encouraged, uplifted, and better connected, and ask God to give VBS leaders and
our church a vision for intentional follow-up that continues those relationships
and meets the needs of people.
Outreach :: Pray about who you can invite and ask God to bring kids and families who
don’t yet know Jesus. Ask God to multiply this outreach and pray for the moments
when a salvation invitation is given. Pray for the invitation to be given clearly and
ask God to already be preparing the hearts of those who will hear the good news
that they may respond in saving faith.
Region :: Pray that God will use VBS to impact not just our church but our entire region.
Volunteers :: Ask God to provide the needed volunteers and place them in the best ﬁt
for their talents and abilities.
Belief :: Pray that the Gospel will be preached boldly and that God will enable even the
most skeptical to believe in Jesus and put their trust in Him.
Sunshine & Safety :: Pray for a week of good weather (no rain, not too hot, etc.) and for
safety during all activities, travel times, and during drop-off & pick-up times.
