Try Praying

Do you remember that we started our Year of Prayer by giving everyone a copy of the trypraying booklet? This booklet gives you a taste of what it is to try praying. You can read it through quickly – it’d probably take you about 15 minutes. But why not take a chapter a day and actually give it a go. Try praying and see what happens.

Even if you’ve done it before, why not try it over the next week alongside other things you choose to do as part of our Weekend Away?

The Family Prayer Adventure Podcasts

Interactive podcasts from Ascension to Pentecost

The Family Prayer Adventure podcasts are a fun and engaging way to help families pray together. There is one following each daily theme of Thy Kingdom Come, and they are about 10-12 minutes long. They feature a game, an interactive Bible story (written and performed by folks like Bob Hartman), a chance to pray and great music. Do share them with families and other mixed-age groups, and use them alongside the Prayer Adventure Map and Journal.
