Prayer/Praise Points

Monday, 20 February 2012

From time to time I’ll be posting about the things we’re praying for with Shane, so that if any of you want to join us you’ll know what challenges he’s facing and can pray with him too.

Although Shane has made a good start to the year at school there have been a few issues Yea, he’s been pretty unorganised, some would even say a little ‘lost’ at times, and I think a lot of it is to do with him being a bit overwhelmed with the new high school routine. He’s doing ok, but we’re praying that he will continue to do well, settle in quickly, enjoy school, not be distracted by things (such as friends/girls!) and really just find his place at school and...I don’t wanna say “blossom”, but whatever the boy equivalent of that is. J

School camp is coming up in a few weeks. We’re praying for the funds to pay for it. Also praying that it will be a fun and memorable experience for Shane, and that he will be safe and healthy during this trip to Mavora Lakes Reserve.

Shane’s phone is broken. Devastating to a teenager, but also pretty annoying for his parents, since he’s out and about so often and his phone is important to his safety (and our sanity, if we’re going to give him any freedom at all). We’re praying for the funds to get him a new one. Money’s pretty tight at the moment with school fees, camp and a wedding in a few weeks in Christchurch, so we’re really looking for God’s help with providing these extra things!

We’re praying for good influences around Shane at a time when friendships are hugely important to him. He makes pretty good choices with friends, but he tends to only really see the good in people, and overlook the bad  – we don’t want that to change, but we also don’t want him to find himself in negative situations that he doesn’t know how to get himself out of. So we’re praying for God to place good friends in his life, who will not drag Shane down, and who will influence him positively as he goes through his teen years.


***Thanks God for keeping Shane healthy and strong.

***Thanks God for the awesome weather we’ve been having. We’ve been able to do so many cool things.

***Thanks God for the boy who found Shane’s wallet on the bus, and kindly returned it to him.

***Thanks God for the good relationship between Shane and Neihana at the moment. As Neihana gets older, they are becoming really good friends, and it’s so good to see.
