Last Sunday in outdoor worship, we were thinking about what we need to pack if we wanted to intentionally spend time with God this summer. I mentioned that while I am away at the cottage in August, I will be spending some time working through a book called ‘31 Short Spiritual Practices.’ It got me thinking about the importance of spending time in prayer. Of course, prayer is always important, but I was wondering if you have ever put aside some time in the day to intentionally talk to God.
At Camp Bimini last week, one of the sessions with the 7-9 year olds, we spoke about prayer. We talked about how Jesus tells us not to worry about using big words, or about praying out loud on street corners – but just treat prayer as a telephone conversation with a friend. Of course with the children, they thought more about it as a tweet, or Instagram, or Facebook post! But seriously, I invite you this summer to put a time aside each day to just chat with God!
And, while you are thinking about that – I invite you to listen to this catchy little song “Prayer is Like A Telephone’ that became an ear worm for the kids at Camp Bimini.
