Tips for Letting Our Senses Lead Us to Prayer (Part 2)

(1 minute read)

St. Paul said, “Pray at every opportunity in the Spirit.” (Eph 6:18). We can use our senses to pray at every opportunity at home, by getting into the habit of turning to God. We can ask the Holy Spirit to help remind us to pray using our senses at home.

This week I have 3 tips for you to use your senses to remember to pray at home.

At Home:

  1. If you hug someone, say, “God bless you.”
  2. If you turn on a light so you can see clearly, ask Jesus, the Light of the World, to help you see Him working in your life.
  3. If you taste something sweet like honey, jam, ice cream, or candy, thank God for all the good gifts He gives.

Can you and your family think of other opportunities to pray or bring God into your life at home?
