The Letter "P"

The verse for Family Time tonight was
"Pray about everything." Philippians 4:6

This was a particularly timely verse for our family. As we received news today that will inspire quite a bit of prayer over the next few weeks.

The activity we did with the kids was a competition to see who could hold their breath. Using a timer each kid took a turn holding their breath as long as they could. Daddy even took a turn. The kids loved running the timer.

After that we sat down and discussed. What were you thinking about while you were holding your breath? Beating my sister, beating my brother, holding my breath were the responses. Were you thinking about breathing again? YES! Most of the time breathing happens all by itself just like prayer should happen all the time. When we forget to pray we should feel like we are holding our breath. Then we discussed how God is everywhere, all the time. No matter where we are we can pray to Him about EVERYTHING. We ended our time by sharing prayer requests and praying for each other.

Then we danced again and headed upstairs to make a picture to add to our book. It's getting pretty thick and it's fun to look back on some of the pictures from previous letters/lessons. Are you holding your breath?
