Prayer: Talking with God

While prayer is talking with God, any good conversation involves listening as well. What would it look like in your home to ask God a question together and listen together for the answer?

Create the atmosphere in your home where talking to God out loud is welcome, by talking out loud to God yourself. This gets our ears in on our life with God.

While many families pray at meals, try starting those prayer times with a minute of silent listening. Extend an invitation during the meal for people to share what they heard God saying.

Memorize the Lord’s Prayer together as a family. Pray it each morning before people bound off to their days. Or invite the whole family to help rewrite the Lord ’s Prayer specifically for your family- pray it daily.
