This August we’re using everyday objects and surroundings to remind us to pray in specific ways. Each week we have a different focus. Week 1 we turned our attention to the natural world and use it as a reminder to praise God. Week 2 we focused on how much we have been forgiven by God through Jesus. Week 3 we centered on being thankful to God. Week 4 we let everyday tasks direct our thoughts to have much we have been forgiven. Week 5, and our final week let everyday activities help you center requests on your own needs.
When you do the following activities, be prompted to pray for your own needs.
When you climb stone steps, let it be a reminder that God is solid and unwavering. He is strong and with him you are secure.

Going On A Journey
When you set out on a journey, whether it is on an airplane, in a car, or on foot be reminded of God’s guidance.
