LIFE Skill: Getting Closer to Jesus!

Open your Bibles to Ephesians 6 and read verse 18 together.

We must be in constant communication with God. How do we do that? We talk to Him through prayer and He talks to us through His Word, the Bible. We’re in a constant war and we must remain alert, hearing and obeying our commander’s callouts!

Discuss the following questions together as a family.

1. Why is prayer so important? How has prayer helped you?

2. Share a time that you felt like you were praying for the same thing over and over again, but you felt like God wasn’t listening to you like you were praying to the ceiling. What did you learn in that time? Are you still in that time? How can you grow as a family and fight together? 

3. Share a time that God answered a BIG prayer request. Were you surprised that He did? Why or why not?

Practical: Share your prayer requests and purpose to pray as a family as often as you can each week.
