Your Plus 1 assignment: Think of one person this week you want to pray for all week long. Make a commitment to pray for that person every day. When you do FAITH5, take turns praying for your “prayer person’ so that your whole household is joining you.
FAITH5: Tonight and every night before you head to bed spend some time with those you love and do this faith-building experience together (or, do it alone as a time of before bed devotions, keeping a journal and recording the following as an act of prayer):
|Share… 1 High and 1 Low from the day. What made it your high? What made it your low?|
|Read… Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die, will live, and everyone who lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?”. (John 11:25-26)|
|Talk… What does it mean to you that Jesus is the resurrection and the life for you today? How does this promise impact the way you view your high and low for the day? Your day tomorrow? What might you not quite understand about this verse?|
|Pray… for each other (and each of the ‘prayer people” you’ve chosen to pray for this week).|
|Bless… each other by affirming one thing you like about the other person. Bless each other by making the sign of the cross on each person, saying: The LORD bless you and keep you.|
