PRAY UPDATE  for members of AHG
AHG Usage Grows 28%
Usage of the P.R.A.Y. Program by members of AHG increased 28% in 2015. Congratulations AHG! The God and Me Award for Tenderhearts had the largest number of recipients, but the God and Life Award for Patriots had the largest percentage increase in recipients. Click here for the usage chart showing AHG's growth since 2004. Also of note are the four Four-Star Recipients in 2015. [A Four-Star Recipient is one who started in the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade and continued on to earn all four P.R.A.Y. awards.] Click here for the registry of AHG Four Star Recipients.
Building Faith in Youth Award for Adults

The growing number of recipients means that there is a growing number of adults who are teaching the P.R.A.Y. Program to girls. The Building Faith in Youth Award is a recognition to honor the adults who are serving as counselors and doing Christian Education and Discipleship through the P.R.A.Y. Program.  To be eligible, the candidate must have taught classes for at least three years. The nomination comes from the Protestant congregation and requires the pastor's signature.  Click here for the nomination form.


Use the "Building Faith in Youth" Award to encourage adults in their ministry through the P.R.A.Y. Program.

Key Resources to Pass Along 
P.R.A.Y.'s curriculum series is in some ways a best kept secret. "How come I never knew about this program?" is a lament we hate to hear. Here are two flyers that you can pass along to others who share your passion for Christian education and discipleship. Homeschool families especially have enjoyed the P.R.A.Y. curriculum.
