Parent Connection


Series:  “I Love The 90’s”

Focus:  Prayer

Family Discussion:

Happy New Year!  As we welcome in 2011 this month, Catalyst will be taking a look back to a decade that was defined by fashion, movies, music and most of all…the birth of our students!  In the 1990’s your students were learning the first things about life:  how to talk, how to read and how to share.  In this series we will learn that those same things are important when it comes to our relationship with God.  This week is all about prayer!  Talk through the following questions as a family, and then enjoy some memorable drive time or meal time while you reminisce about what your family looked like in the 90’s.

“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.
Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
  Matthew 6:6-7

Discussion Questions:

  1. Why does Jesus say “when” and not “if you pray”?
  2. If the point of prayer is not to be seen by others, why should we pray?
  3. How much of a relationship can you have as a family if you never talk?  Or your friends?
  4. What is one way, time, or setting that you can commit to praying as a family?

Communication is foundational to all relationships.  Whether it is your friends, your family, or God, the only way to grow is to live life together and communicate.  Take some time to do that as a family right now.  Parents, set the scene for your students about life before they entered your family and walk them through the changes that they brought to your world.  You can even tell some stories about how different life was in the 90’s, technologically, culturally, etc.
