Youth Group Update

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:

How to Pray
The St. Francis Prayer

And practiced taking some quiet time of our own to pray while we listened to this song:

All Creatures of Our God and King

We discussed how most prayers include:

  • thanksgiving
  • gratitude
  • 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!
