WEEK 5: Practicing prayer partnership
Is your prayer life in a rut? If so, this week is for you! Welcome to Creative Prayer Week!
The challenge for this week is to find a friend and partner together in trying out a new way to pray for one another each day this week. Prayerfully approach one other person today and discuss with them how you might pray for one another every day this week. The following is a small list of some ideas for you and your prayer partner to practice. Not all of these ideas involve actually meeting together in person. Whether or not you choose to actually meet (and how often) is up to you:
Daily prayer walk: Walk together around your neighborhood/work places/school or church while praying.
Daily “txt pryr”: Send one another a daily prayer via text message.
Daily prayer call: Set up a daily phone appointment for prayer with one another.
Daily candle light prayer meeting: Lighting a candle can be a powerful symbol of Jesus’ presence as you gather to pray.
Daily fasting with prayer: Discuss what you might forego each day to focus your prayer for each other (TV, newspaper, coffee, internet, sweets, etc).
