The Branches An Edge Night on Prayer About this Night In the Gather, the parents and youth play a game to illustrate different aspects of prayer and relationships with God. The Proclaim teaches the youth and the parents about prayer and gives practical examples of how they can grow in devotion during Lent. The Break gives the youth an opportunity for spontaneous prayer, while the parents are given time to make a prayer journal. During the Send, the youth and parents come back together to pray as a group. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to emphasize the need for prayer in order to strengthen and maintain a relationship with God, and that Lent can be a good time to implement new prayer practices. Catechism # 2558 - 2565 # 2705 - 2719 Scripture Psalms 130: Matthew 6:5 -8 Luke 11:1 -13 Romans 8:26 Key Concepts • Just as a tree without branches is not really a tree, a relationship with God is impossible without prayer. • If we truly want to turn our hearts to God, we have to have a relationship with Him; communication and quality time are vital parts of any lasting relationship. • When we know God, and know we are loved unconditionally by Him, we realize how present He is within our lives. Knowing that He saves, protects, and guides us, we cannot help but be filled with happiness, joy, security, and love through all stages of our lives.
