Hands-on Faith for Families– Week of September 11, 2017
Theme: Talk with God
Take Time to Pray
Scripture:…praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. (Ephesians 6:18 ESV).
Play: Take turns looking around and turning something you see into a one-sentence prayer or praise. Trees? Thank God for His creation. Ambulance? Pray for the patient’s healing. Puddles of rain? Thank God for watering the earth. A school? Pray for teachers and students.
Talk: The Bible tells us to “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). This doesn’t mean we must talk to God nonstop. But we should keep in mind our need for Him and talk to Him often. We can use things around us as reminders to thank God for our blessings and tell Him our needs. What other things might you see today that could remind you to pray?
Pray: Ask God to show you blessings to be thankful for and people who need prayer.
