Intentionally making ourselves look more like Jesus is a big part of what Sunday night gatherings at the Blender are all about. We explore that by making sure we learn about the importance of regular time with God, being in intentional relationships, and by serving others. This week we will continue in a four week series on knowing God. Each week our students will explore different ways of being able to experience personal time with God.
This week or MAIN IDEA is that PRAYER HELPS US TO KNOW GOD BETTER. Your students will come to see that prayer is more like a conversation they would have with a friend, and not like placing an order at a vending machine. Take a look at Psalm 145:18 and Ephesians 1:15-17. These verses remind us that God is near to everyone who calls on Him-not just good people, perfect people, or people who are really good at praying. Anytime we talk to god, He is close to us and we to Him.
Have a conversation with your student about:
One way to know God better is to talk to Him. Prayer doesn’t have to be a formal, impersonal, one-way conversation. Share with your teenager some of your best practices in creating a healthy prayer-life. If you feel like you’re lacking in this area, talk about ways both of you can improve.
Try this out this week and see how it goes:
It may be challenging for your student to verbalize their thoughts and feelings, especially when put on the spot. Send them a text sometime this week, asking them to think of three ways you can be there for them, where they are, right now. Give them some time to respond.
When they do, affirm their answers and support them in their greatest areas of need.
