Youth Ministries Join to Pray and Fast for Purity

More than 25 national Christian youth organizations are kicking off the formation of a joint ministry network by calling young people to fast and pray for sexual purity.

With participation from ministries such as TheCall, Exodus International and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, the network launched the “Pray for Purity” campaign June 1. Organizers are asking youth and youth leaders to pray and fast every first Friday of the month.

“As we minister to students, we see day after day the incredible difficulties that they face,” said Scott Davis, director of student ministries of Exodus International, an ex-gay ministry based in Florida. “They are constantly bombarded with sexual content that confuses their self-identity and twists their views of sexuality. As a result, they are increasingly engaging in sex outside of the protection of marriage and suffering dire results. Because of the dangers today's youth are facing, we are joining together to pray on the first Friday of every month for our nation's youth.”

The prayer network stems from a counter-culture teen movement pioneered by Teen Mania Ministries, which was created to inspire teens to “reject destructive pop culture messages and recreate teen culture on their own terms.”

“This country desperately needs young men and women of character to make a difference among their peers,” Davis said. “This can only happen when our youth encounter and experience the life-giving power of Jesus Christ. We are pleased to partner with such dynamic organizations who are eager to accomplish this goal.”
