Praying Together in the Christmas Season--
This Thought was presented two years ago on the Praying Together Course Lesson 13 and is re-presented again.
Christ wants a praying church—What about a praying family? With the Christmas season upon us, this would be a good time to and look for ways to try and apply some of our learning about praying together.
Taking that idea, I present the following to each of you as a challenge to you to try the following: Look for opportunities to pray with your spouse, children, family, and friends. Take a few minutes together and remember what Christmas is about, especially about the true meaning of Christmas and the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. Then encourage each person say a brief sentence prayer that is related to what they have just considered about Christmas.
At the end- you could even sing a carol like ‘Silent Night’ and then say ‘Amen’ or just have everyone say ‘AMEN’ together, if you don’t sing.
This could be done at a meal, at a time when the family is together, or other special time. It is possible that what you do this year, you may want to do in upcoming years—could be the possible start of a wonderful family tradition, and be an encouragement to all.
