CCD 7th: Prayer sharing + A.R.R.R (day 3)

Today, in our 7th grade pre-Confirmation class, we opened with some personal journaling time while listening the the Doxology prayer sung 2 different ways.

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host:
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
Amen.

First, (soft) “Doxology” by Nicole Nordeman

Then (rock) “Doxology” by David Crowder Band

After prayer, we took turns sharing our decorated binder covers with a collage of “ME” … likes, interests, family, pictures, sports, hobbies, etc.

Then we took turn sharing our experiences with praying the Doxology prayer over the past couple of weeks.  Some great stories!

[PRAYER] When your spending time in personal prayer with the Lord, here’s a good outline to follow  . . . .

A.R.R.R.

  • ACKNOWLEDGE –- How’s my life right now? Pay attention to your thought + feelings + desires (“the Big 3”).
  • RELATE -– Tell God about ALL “3” honestly.
  • RECEIVE -– Quiet your mind, focus on God, & listen to “the Big 3.”  (Discern spirits)
  • RESPOND -– do what you NEED to do

When you have something to talk to the Lord about, process your “Big 3” with this model.
