Prayer: Talking with God
Some ideas for practicing:
- Create an atmosphere in your home where talking to God out loud is welcome, by talking out loud to God yourself.
- While prayer is talking with God, any good conversation involves listening as well. 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, and pray it daily.
