not only do we want to make it easier for you to start conversations, but also to connect together as a family. We do a lot of singing at camp, even the older campers. So this may be easier than you think…
Romans 8:26-27; Ephesians 5:17-21; 6:18
Holy Spirit empowers believers’ service and prayers
This week, spend some time practicing two of the activities emphasized in today’s focal passages: singing and praying. Before dinner one night, allow a family member to share his or her favorite chorus, camp song or hymn. Sing the first verse of that chorus as a family. Do this each night until every member of the family has had a chance to share. Discuss the importance of songs and hymns in sharing our faith with others and reminding ourselves of our relationship with God.
After dinner, ask family members to share prayer requests, but focus on the requests for other people. Each night, let a different family member intercede (pray) for the people who were mentioned. Remind family members that we can intercede (pray) for others because the Holy Spirit intercedes for us.
