How can we have a prayerful approach to the holidays?
Welcome to another episode of Flourish-Meant, where we delve into topics that help us embrace a more prayerful approach to life. I'm your host, Tina Yeager, and today we have a special guest, Janet McHenry, who will guide us in developing a prayerful approach to the holidays.
Janet is an experienced prayer warrior and the author of the book Praying Personalities, which explores different prayer styles and helps readers find their own natural prayer personality.
As we navigate the holiday season, it's important to approach it prayerfully rather than with worries and concerns. Janet will share wisdom on how to customize our holidays and accommodate each other's differences in prayer. Join us as we discover how a prayerful approach can bring glory to Jesus and truly flourish our family lives, even in the midst of challenges. Welcome back, Janet!
Janet McHenry is a prayer enthusiast who believes that each person has a unique way of communicating with God. Through her studies of prayer in the Bible, she discovered that praying people approached God differently based on their personalities. For example, she observed how Moses engaged in a cerebral conversation with God, trying to reason with him about his call to lead the people of Israel. This resonated with Janet, as she prefers approaching prayer with rationality and understanding, grounding her faith in God's word. However, she also recognizes that others may have a more emotive approach, being emotionally charged during their prayer experiences.
Janet uses her knowledge and understanding of prayer to encourage individuals to embrace their own unique style of communicating with God.
In this episode, we discussed:
📚 Key Takeaways:
1️⃣ Approach the holidays prayerfully: Instead of making worry-filled lists, give your concerns to God through prayer. Consider writing them down and symbolically placing them in a Christmas stocking or a "Jesus jar," and see how God works in your life during the holiday season.
2️⃣ Embrace your unique prayer personality: Recognize that everyone has their own natural prayer style. Whether you're more intellectually oriented like Moses, emotive like Hannah, or physically inclined like those who fasted in the Bible, find ways to incorporate prayer that align with your natural tendencies.
3️⃣ Be thankful for differences: Appreciate and embrace the diverse prayer styles of those around you. Rather than comparing or feeling pressured to pray a certain way, express gratitude for the beauty of each person's individuality and seek to learn from one another.
