Wake Up and make a difference! Taking time to pray for a child or teenager that you know can make a world of difference in their lives, whether they are your biological relation or not. Your daily prayer for God’s love, for health, joy and good friends is the best gift you can give them. You will experience great encouragement as a praying parent, as God shows great things in prayer – and think of the positive effect it may have on a young person, when they know that someone is praying for him or her, every day. WakeUp Deborah is a worldwide movement of prayer aimed at encouraging as many parents, grandparents, youth workers, church members, teachers and counselors as possible, to pray for children and teenagers.

Open Up, prayer course for young teenagers

Open Up is a prayer course for teenagers, aged 10 – 13, worked out in 10 Bible stories. It contains the Open Up handbook, the Prayer Hand poster, the Prayer Diary and 6 videos. Two things make Open Up unique:

1. Teens learn to pray in connection with a prayer parent. Open Up invites church members to “adopt” a teenager to pray for. They are called a prayer parent and are connected to a teenager. They know of the blessing of prayer for themselves, for the teen and for their church.

2. Teens learn to pray using the Prayer Hand method. The Prayer Hand is a tool that covers five im­portant aspects of praying to God, one for each finger: to Praise God, to ask Forgiveness, Thanksgiving, praying for Others and praying for Yourself. There is a video to get a first impression of Open Up or you can visit the website.

WakeUp Deborah is a ministry of Youth for Christ international.
