What do you find most difficult to pray about?
What makes it challenging to pray on a regular basis?
Print out or copy several prayers from True Parents in the Cheon Seong Gyeong. (They are the last section of the book and are organized by topics/chapters).
Have each youth choose one of the prayers they are interested in based on the title.
Offer one of True Parents prayers in front of the group with a strong voice and sincerity as an example of how these prayers can be a powerful tool for our spiritual lives.
Have each of the youth read their prayers out loud with determination and sincerity in one of the following scenarios:
In small groups take turns praying.
Or by themselves, give time for the youth to go outside and pray.
Debrief in small groups:
