Frontline:NY09 - Streets of Harlem

Frontline Student Ministries Filed Under: Labels: , ,

We exited the station at 125th and Lexington today not sure what to expect of Prayer Stations today. We realized very quickly that we were worlds away from Huffman Mill Rd. and Church St. Briefings that we may see things way out of our norm were certainly realized. We stayed aware of our surroundings but soon an overwhelming burden for the people of the city spread through the group.

Each person played a critical role today. Person after person came asking for prayer. Situations varied from broken marriage, drug addictions, anger, and so much more. The spiritual vacuum in the lives we encountered was overwhelming. Many people thanked us for praying for the city and for the people of Harlem. The stories of each person we met could fill many pages and likely will very soon. Just know that God moved through the youth of FSM into the lives of so many in Harlem today.

The evening was spent prayer walking near City Hall, Ground Zero, Wall St, and NYU. It was such a beautiful way to spend the day with these students. We did have our share of fun including several people deciding to become part of the fountain in Washington Sq Park. We'll add the story of the $5 challenge later as well. Let's just say that even our times of fun and relaxation were built around ministry!
