I'm a big believer in the power of experiential learning. To this end, instead of giving a talk about prayer, I'd much rather create a series of prayer stations designed to give students the opportunity to pray in a variety of ways.
Over the next several weeks, I'll be posting some of my favorite prayer stations. Prayer stations can be used collectively during a prayer night or individually, as part of a larger lesson. For example: This particular prayer station was used as part of a prayer experience during a winter retreat focused on vulnerability in relationships with family and friends.
Prayer Station: All the Time
Themes: Friendships, Love
Scripture Reference: Proverbs 17:17
Supplies: Clock, sharpies
Proverbs 17:17 says, “A friend loves at all times.”
Think about your relationship with your best friend. How do you love that person at all times?
On the clock, write one way that you can actively show your friend love for each hour of the day.
As you do, pray that God would increase your love – not only for your best friend but for all your friends.
