PUMP & PRAY – A Special Message to Help Save Kids

Kids are struggling today. Not all of them, but a lot of them. And I hate it. Do you feel me on this?

Heck, mental health is affecting ALL of us. But we can’t afford to keep losing kids. We are in a battle and we gotta fight like mad to get their minds right, their hearts right, their spirits right, and even their bodies right.

Needless to say, I’m on a crusade. I don’t know all the answers. And I’m going to need your help. It’s going to take a barrage of effort and energy by ALL of us and I hope you’re willing to step up with me.

Part of that involves speaking.

Part of it involves podcasting.

Part of it involves coaching.

Part of it involves connecting with even more kids.

ALL of it involves PRAYER!

Today, you get ALL of it. Literally.

I’m sharing a podcast from a talk I recently did for 800+ kids at Christian Unified Schools.

Check out today’s “PUMP & PRAY” message and let me know what you think.

Whether you’re a kid, parent, or anyone looking to be fired up, I think you’re going to experience some great strength, energy, love, and inspiration on today’s IMPACT Show.

PUMP & PRAY | Ep. 297

If there’s ever a time kids need more hope, faith, love, positivity, prayer, and energy poured into them, it’s NOW.

Can I get an “amen” to that, please? And I am as committed as ever to doing that.

Here is some of what I cover in this episode:

  • Challenges. While none of us like going through them, they can be of great value if we use them properly.
  • The five ways to get through the toughest of challenges.
  • PUMPED up. Top ways to get your Body, Mind, and Spirit “pumped up.”
  • PRAYER. The power of prayer and the power of praying together.
  • The two-minute “prayer challenge.” Step up to it this week!
  • PREACH. Sevenways to preach without being a “thumper.”
  • The Life Transformation Challenge. 10 things to do daily for the next 30 days.
  • Top scripture and verses to support getting “PUMPED UP,” how to “PRAY,” and the importance of your walk and testimony.
  • A special prayer at the end for anyone who would like to stick around to the very end and pray WITH me.


Please share this episode. My prayer is that it helps save at least ONE kid from all the warfare they face today. Heck, ALL of us….not just kids. But I really want the kiddos to get their ears on this one this week. Please share. You can do so by forwarding this email, texting the link to the episode to a friend, or sharing on your social media.

Thank you for LISTENING to the podcasts. I believe all of them are important. I don’t know if any of them are as important as this one as it literally may help save some young kids’ life.


Much love…and tons of IMPACT.

QB STRONG Program – Coming Soon!

COMING SOON! QB STRONG is an all-new virtual training program designed specifically for youth and high school quarterbacks. Together with my sons, Luke, and Brady Durkin, I’ve built an 8-week, app-led strength, speed, and conditioning program to train you to get in peak physical and mental shape.

I’ve trained the world’s most elite quarterbacks like Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Carson Palmer, Chase Daniel, Brett Rypien, Jameis Winston, and many more. I have now turned those training methods into an effective program for success at the highest levels of football. QB Strong is designed specifically for athletes ages 13-17. Be on the lookout for the program launch VERY SOON!

P.S. Also, if you are NOT a young QB or don’t have a son who is a young QB, please forward this message to a coach or parent who has a young Quarterback looking to become his best. Or to a trainer who works with young “throwers” (QBs and pitchers) as this is the exact program I use with ALL my QBs at ALL levels.

Todd Durkin Motivational Mosaic Word Art

I was gifted a very special mosaic art piece recently that has a ton of my motivational mantras on it. The mosaic is from a woman who recently opened her own gym (Tricia Hoyt of Journey 333 in Londonderry, NH) and attributed a ton of her vision to some messages she had heard from me. Tricia now has several months under her belt and is already IMPACTING hundreds in her amazing new gym/sanctuary.

If you would like to pick up the same “Motivational Mosaic” that Tricia gifted me, it is available on Etsy! Order one to hang in your gym, office, garage, or anywhere you need a little extra motivation. Check it out here

The best part is that a portion of the proceeds go back to the Durkin IMPACT Foundation to help fund scholarships for student-athletes graduating and headed off to college.
