On Your Mark, Get Set, Pray! How Do I Start Prayer? About this Edge Night The theme of this Edge Night is a race–the idea that in order to win a race or to make it to the end, you have to start. The main Scripture for the night is from St. Paul’s letter to the Corinthians about running the race so as to win (1 Corinthians 9:24-25). The Edge Night will begin with a series of relay races and then transition into the main teaching for the night. During the Break, there will be a time of small group discussion and an opportunity for the youth to make a commitment to start praying regularly. The night will end with a time of prayer as a large group. Goal of This Night The goal for the night is for the youth to understand the importance of starting to pray and truly entering into a personal relationship with Christ. The middle school youth will be given practical tips on how to start praying and also come to understand why Catholics make the sign of the cross every time they begin their prayers. Youth will be encouraged to put aside any fear or laziness that might be holding them back from beginning, or continuing, their relationship with Christ.
