Ask, Seek, Knock (Part 2)
Life Night Outline
Goal of this Night
This Life Night is the second in a two-part series. The goal of the second part is to discuss the challenges and success the teens faced in their prayer during the week. This second part will wrap up the semester, asking God to help the teens fully embrace the Paschal Mystery in their lives.
About this night
The Life Night on prayer is split up into two parts. This second part is meant to be a follow-up to the first. The teens will gather together and immediately get into their school groups to share their prayer plan and experience for the week. After, the youth minister will ask two or three teens to share their experience from the week and lead into a Holy Hour of Eucharistic Adoration. The night will end in praise and worship and thanking God for sending his Son to save us.
The Life Night this week was the second of a two-part night on prayer. This week was also the last Life Night of our Paschal Mystery semester. We discussed how the teens’ prayer plan went during the week. We closed our Life Night and semester with a Holy Hour of Eucharistic Adoration. Here are a few possible discussion questions to wrap up the semester:
- What are one or two new things you learned this semester that you have taken with you?
- How do you see Christ’s Passion, death and Resurrection differently?
- How have you seen an improvement in your prayer life over the semester?
- How can you live the Paschal Mystery beyond the semester? How can we do that as a family?
The environment for this night is the same as the night before. Cut out letters from colored construction paper, poster board or butcher paper to create lines from popular prayers the teens should know. Place the prayers all around the room—on the walls and floor, hanging from the ceiling, and across the front of the room. Some of the lines can be from prayers like the Our Father; Hail Mary; Glory Be; Hail Holy Queen (Salve Regina); Come, Holy Spirit; Serenity Prayer; Meal Prayer; Memorare; Act of Contrition and Guardian Angel. If necessary, use different lines from the same prayers to fill out the room. One difference for this night is the need for a table for Eucharistic Adoration in the front of the room.
