In His Presence Family Connection May 25

family-connection-square

Every afternoon, I will post something for you to share with your family in the evening.  It may be a talking point, a short video, a Scripture to read, etc.

We have been working through a list of sins from Anne Graham Lotz new book, The Daniel Prayer.

Today’s Post…

Today’s sin is: Neglect of Prayer

Talking points:

  • Am I spending time daily in prayer?
  • Am I choosing a place free of distraction?
  • Am I focusing on what I’m saying or letting my mind wander?
  • “Have I substituted wishing, daydreaming, or fantasizing for real prayer?” (Lotz)
  • When I’m praying, do I have “fervent focused faith?” (Lotz)

Pray and confess neglect of prayer.  Make a plan to spend more time in prayer, whether it’s early in the morning, at lunch, in the evening or maybe all three!

Today’s Post…

Today’s sin is: Unbelief

Talking points:

  • Are there promises that God has made that I don’t believe He will keep?
  • Is there a prayer I don ‘t think He will answer?
  • What is causing me not to believe?
  • Do I trust that God can do what He says?
  • Would not believing God’s promises be like accusing Him of lying?
  • What are some promises God has made in His Word? (1 John 1:9, Philippians 4:19, Romans 8:38-39, Isaiah 41:10, Deut. 31:8, 1 Kings 8:56, John 10:28, 1 John 5:14-15, Proverbs 3:5-6)
  • What are some Scriptures you can use to remind you to trust God?

Pray and confess your unbelief.  Confidently pray once again for something that may have been a request you doubted God would answer.  Have faith to believe that He can and trust His timing.

Remember, we will begin an Online Women’s Bible Study in three weeks. We will spend the summer studying women of the Bible and we will start with Eve.  Make sure you’ve subscribed to this blog.  I’m also planning to post daily videos on my Youtube channel.  More details on that soon.

Today’s Post…

Today’s sin is: Neglect of Bible Reading

Take some time to discuss what that means.

  • Are you reading the Bible individually each day?
  • Are you reading the Bible daily as a family?
  • Why is it important to read the Bible often?
  • Why don’t people read their Bibles more?  What prevents this?

Pray and confess this sin.  Reading the Bible daily may take discipline at first.  But, the more you do it, you will begin to see the Scriptures come alive.

 

Suggested daily reading for tween and teen boys: (1 chapter a day..or break up further)

David’s 400 Men (very exciting adventures of David after he was on the run from Saul up to the time he was anointed king)

1 Samuel 20 – 2 Samuel 2:4

Suggested daily reading for tween and teen girls: 

Read the stories of women of the Bible such as Ruth, Esther, Hannah…

(You may choose to use Bible Studies for Preteens to aid in this.  Kids read from their own Bibles.  This resource will break that down for them and ask thoughtful questions.)

Suggested daily reading for women:

Join us daily on this blog at 6:30 as we read through the Gospels.  In three weeks, we will begin reading about Women of the Bible using John MacArthur’s book, Twelve Extraordinary Women as a supplement.

Suggested daily reading for men:

Pick a book such as James and read it through purposefully.
