Formative Activity: PRAY TOGETHER!

It's good to be back from vacation and getting in the saddle again. I know many of our groups are getting revved back up. One of my groups kicked the year off together last night, it was refreshing to be back together again!

New beginnings are a great time to start new traditions.

Pastor Mike is soon implementing "prayer journals" in our children's small group time. I thought that was a great idea.

You can get a cheap notebook at the dollar store, or maybe splurge a little and get something nice at Barnes and Noble. Appoint someone to keep the journal for the group and then track your prayer requests over time. This can be a great way to see how God has worked in your group over a long period.

You might even use the first pages for some ongoing requests such as:
  • an adopted missionary
  • a local ministry agency
  • your pastors and church leaders
  • government officials
  • etc...
