    Refreshing our Prayer

    June 29, 2018 Pastor Eric Groot-Nibbelink

    REFRESHING OUR PRAYER

    “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer” (Romans 12:12)

     

    Some practices to help to refresh…

    1. Choose a Psalm.  Think about what it teaches you about praying.  Write or simply offer a prayer that includes words or ideas that you have learned from the Psalm.
    2. Take time for a silent prayer that includes stretches of simply “listening” to God and what might be placed on your heart and mind.
    3. FOR CHILDREN: Sit down with your children and make a list of prayer concerns.  Think of family members, church family members and a few items current in the news.  Place this list in a prominent place (your fridge, family bulletin board, etc.).  Incorporate items into table or bedtime prayers.  Repeat this exercise after a week to update the list.  Try to make this a weekly habit or pattern.
