QUIET PRAYER
As we continue our journey through Lent and seek our destination of Easter and the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus, we are focused on prayer, fasting, and giving. Our challenge to each class is to start with 15 seconds of silent prayer. 15 seconds??? Yes, it might seem like no time at all, but try this at home to just sit still with your child for 15 seconds to listen for God. It will be challenging, but so rewarding!
