As we reflected on the Gospel reading during our Mom’s Group meeting this week, we discussed ways to be persistent in prayer throughout our family’s often hectic schedules. Some ideas we discussed included designating a prayer area in our homes, having a daily “coffee talk” with the Lord, and playing “I Spy Blessings” with the kids while driving in the car. Another fun suggestion was having a “Joyful Praise Dance Party” as a family. Intrigued by this idea, I went home that afternoon, cranked up the tunes from this year’s Bible Camp CD, and we rocked out together in the name of the Lord. So much fun! Joyful laughter bellowed throughout the house as we jumped, clapped, twisted, and praised the Lord! It was truly the most fun we have had together as a family in a long time!... Not to mention a great boost for both body and soul!
For meditation this week, try out your own “Joyful Praise Dance Party”. Here are a few suggestions for music to get the party started:
