Today on the podcast, Sean talks about an activity to use with your preteens, the two-colored prayer.
At a recent pastoral meeting the pastors were given a journal and two different colored pencils. The pastors were directed to write down their questions, thoughts or needs to God in one color and then sit a listen and try to perceive the Holy Spirit’s voice and write that response in the other color. It is great if this response is in the form of a scripture but if not still write down what is perceived and then go back and see if it goes along with scripture or confirm with a more mature Christian.
This is a great tool for even the preteens. Sean actually plans to use it with the preteen leadership students. Allowing them to do the activity and share if they would like what they feel the Holy Spirit was saying to them. An easy activity for you to do or something to have your preteens do and all you need are two colored pencils and a piece of paper.
