Goal for this Life Night
The goal of this Life Night is to answer the questions “what is prayer?” and “why do we need a prayer life?” Using the Lord’s Prayer as a starting point, the teens will learn the importance of prayer as the foundation of their relationship with God.
About this night
Prayer is at the heart of a relationship with Jesus. Jesus not only calls us to pray, He also teaches us how to pray through His words and example. This night looks at the call to prayer in a culture that demands instant communication and feedback. The Life Night starts with the “Cell Phone Olympics,” challenging the teens to show off their cell phone skills. The teaching draws the parallel from modern communication to our deep need to connect to God through prayer. In particular, the teaching will explain the model of prayer given to us in the Our Father. The Break invites the teens into a time of silence and listening. Finally, the Send gives the teens an opportunity to enter into a specific type of prayer and make a commitment to daily prayer in their lives.
