Life of Prayer | Bible Study
by Anita Lafoon
At Youth Ministry Conversations, we believe you know your group best. This means our resources look a little different than what you may have experienced in the past. We try and create a “buffet” of material so you can choose and pick what works best for your group. You will find ideas, instructions, and possibilities in this packet all related to the theme of “Stories of Christ Followers.” How you use them, and how you structure your study is up to you. We hope you enjoy this resource and return in the future to check out others.
When we talk about praying, a lot of us think of sitting in church – heads bowed, hands folded, eyes closed, trying to pay attention and not fall asleep. But prayer is not a posture – it’s a action, a discipline, a lifestyle. Talking to God should be as natural as breathing and as much a part of life as laughter, tears, and love. In “The Life of Prayer,” youth with have the opportunity to learn about and practice many forms of prayer. Creative or active, meditative or vocal, “The Life of Prayer” encourages youth to connect to God and discover prayer habits that fit their unique gifts and personalities.
