The Prescription A Life Night on Receiving Jesus and the Grace He Offers About This Life Night This Life Night is an Adoration and Confession service and will look and feel a bit different than a typical Life Night. It follows the same format: Gather, Proclaim, Break, and Send. However, it is more evangelical, personal, and prayerful. The host is the master of ceremonies. He or she welcomes the attendees, breaks the ice, introduces the format, and begins in prayer. He or she is responsible for setting a personal and prayerful tone and building openness to the work God wants to accomplish. The speaker gives the main talk. He or she is introduced by the host who has laid the groundwork for an engaging and thought-provoking talk. The worship leader guides the congregation in prayerful reflection in the presence of the Eucharist, while also encouraging the teens to go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Gather is a short period of upbeat praise and worship and a light-hearted, uplifting welcome by the host. The Proclaim is a powerful teaching that is strongly influenced by personal testimony and Scripture, and invites teens to receive Jesus and live in the reality of “all I have is yours.” The Break is an extended period of Adoration and provides the opportunity to go to Reconciliation. The Send summarizes the Adoration and Confession service and offers a hopeful send off. In advance, invite your parish priest(s), priests from neighboring parishes, the vocations director, and any religious priests in the area to come and hear confessions. Give them plenty of notice and inform them that this is the fourth and final Life Night in a series on the wound of sin. Goal of This Night The goal of The Prescription is to inspire teens to receive Jesus and the grace He offers. Catechism # 1966 Scripture Luke 15:11 -32 2 Corinthians 5:17 Key Concepts – When we are seriously sick, we go to the doctor and he or she gives us a prescription so we can get better. We, then, have to get it filled and remember to take it as prescribed. – If we need something, it means we don’t have it. I need new clothes. I need coffee. But it’s different with Jesus. We don’t need Him in the same way because that would imply that we don’t have Him when we do. – The medicine we need to live a fulfilling, healthy, and happy life is already prescribed; we just have to receive it by confessing our sins, receiving forgiveness, and living as new creations in Jesus.
