Happy St. Francis and St. Clare day!
In honor of St. Francis and St. Clare, we watched some cute animal videos.
We also talked about prayer – how all of us can, at any time, “hang out with” God through prayer. We watched two videos with examples of prayer:
And practiced taking some quiet time of our own to pray while we listened to this song:
We discussed how most prayers include:
- praise to God
- asking God for help for ourselves and others
- quiet time spent in God’s presence
Youth were encouraged to take some prayer time during the week – just a few minutes to say “Hi God, what’s up?” and share time with God. Even if they don’t know what to say, that uncertainty itself can be the prayer!
