Family Activity

Family Prayer Box

In Luke's gospel, Jesus warned his followers against overreacting. Faced with fears, rumors, and external pressures, followers might be tempted to act rashly. Instead, Jesus insists his followers should trust his Spirit to guide them.

In these uncertain times, we need to take his words to heart and pray. One way to address family fears and place them before the Lord can be found in a "Family Prayer Box." Have family members write down fears and anxieties on sheets of paper and place them in the prayer box. Offer the box and its contents to God each night this week. Open the box at the end of the week and discuss how God answered the prayers.
