Sunday was one of those days where everything fell in to place--kind of.
You know those days...where every discussion I was a part of, the sermon I hear, the topic of youth group--was exactly what I needed to hear, were the song lyrics I needed to hear.
To keep from typing a novel--let me share our youth group discussion.
There are FOUR different types of prayer:
"adoring God for WHO He is: Savior, Shepherd, Lord, Refuge, Strength"
"not just saying I am sorry, but true repentance and change of heart"
"thanking God for WHAT He has done"
"asking God to meet a need - for yourself or someone else"
We had some prayer stations set up for the youth--one for each type of prayer. I took some pictures after the kids went home:
This was the prayer of Supplication station. The youth were urged to light candles for family or friends who needed prayer, and then spend time praying for them. It was beautiful-
Prayer of Adoration--they were urged to write down words of praise/names for our Lord Jesus.
I'm just reminded about how important prayer is--it's not just words. It's not praying because I feel I have to. I pray because prayer is communicating with my Creator.
