The challenges facing the youth of La Crescenta fueled prayers by local leaders and clergy who spoke on their behalf at the first ever Crescenta Valley Town Council Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday. More than 250 people gathered at Holy Redeemer's Healy Hall, where Chap Clark - a professor of youth, family and culture at Fuller Theological Seminary - addressed the stress and loneliness felt by so many of today's teens. In 2001 and 2002, Clark worked as a daily substitute teacher at Crescenta Valley High School where his three children attended and he observed how teens felt about their lives.

KIMBERLIE ZAKARIAN Many years ago, I had a young lady ask me how one became a Christian, namely how one got "saved." I explained to her that salvation was about asking Jesus Christ into your heart as Lord and Savior. She asked where that concept was in the Bible. At the time, I myself had to look it up. But when I found the right scripture, I realized I had a jewel -- one I have taught to people for years in ministry. The precious scripture speaking of Jesus being the source of salvation is Romans 10:9: "If confess with your mouth 'Jesus is Lord' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."

Christians in majority, so they should decide The recent editorial, "Prayer-minded councils are simply missing the point" is missing the point. The writer asks, in effect, why prayer at public meetings can't be said privately and individually instead of formally and publicly. Individual prayer is not the same as collective prayer. Those who have no religious faith often believe that religion is man-made and a form of superstition. Those who have a genuine faith know differently.

Christian and Jewish faithful will begin to observe their respective holy days, with observances of Lent, Purim and Passover taking place all over the world. What does the Bible teach us about entering these holy days with a sense of prayer? For Christians, Lent is the 40 days of preparation for Easter, which this year is on April 12. The 40 days echo Jesus’ 40 days in the desert, his time of testing before his ministry. The Gospels tell us of Jesus in a struggle with Satan, who tempts him to use his powers for shortcuts to glory.

The Muslim holy month of fasting begins today and, for the first time, local followers of the faith will have a nearby location to meet and practice their traditions together in what can otherwise be a lonely and challenging period of self-restraint, community leaders said. Muslims abstain from food, drink and sexual activity during daylight hours for the month of Ramadan, which follows the lunar calendar and will last until Sept. 19 this year. While local Muslims have either gone without attending traditional evening prayer services or have driven to other mosques in the past, this year will be different, said Mahmoud Nouh, spokesman for the Islamic Center of Glendale.
