Prayer Focus for October 18, 2020

A Praying Family


If prayer is not something your family is accustomed to doing consistently together, you may feel overwhelmed.  Here are some practical tips to help you get started:


Practical Tips:

  1. Don’t worry about being perfect, just start.
  2. Decide when and where you will meet.
  3. Guard this time on your schedule.
  4. Pray over the spot you select–The Spirit of God often lingers in a place where people meet with Him regularly.

How to stay on track:

  1. Start with whoever is willing, even if it is just you.
  2. Be flexible, yet persistent-if one meeting fails, do not quit, just start again.
  3. Put all cell phones away and other distractions.
  4. Consider the age ranges involved.
  5. Keep shorter for younger ages.
  6. Allow younger ones some quiet playing (they still listen)
  7. Keep track.
  8. Keep a journal of request and praise reports.
  9. Review what is recorded.
