The Life Prayers invite God to SYNC us with the big idea of Life Season. The prayers are not a way of trying harder to be a little better. They are a way of inviting the Creator to SYNC us or turn us into the kind of human beings he had in mind when he made the first ones.
Choose any prayer style option below that will best keep you in SYNC with our Creator. If/when you realize you are out of SYNC, admit it to God, and any of these prayers will help you get back in SYNC.
1. Set of seven informal prayers to use in a weekly cycle
These are based on the seven Jubilee Verses that bring out different parts of the Vision Rhythm. Use this option if you like the idea of "praying Scripture," and if variety helps you focus.
2. Same formal prayer every day for the whole Season
Make us a fountain of the water of Life. Let it flow. Let it flow. Let it flow.
Use this option if you like repetition and want to drill in the basic idea.
3. Simplest way -- no cards at all
"SYNC us with your intentions for creation." This ties you each day to the two-word prayer for all seven SYNC seasons--"SYNC us." It is based on the Lord's Prayer. A good option if you want something that will work without having to look at cards.
4. Write/say your own prayer(s)
Prayer is not "one-size-fits-all." Please adjust any of the above to fit you better, or start over and create your own prayers from scratch. Whatever SYNC's you with the Creator and his creation is fine!
5. Bed-time prayer
Like mealtimes, bedtime is a great time to thank the Creator for what sustains us--food and rest. With or without the Jubilee Cards, we can look back at our day and count our blessings. We can drop off to sleep peacefully since the Creator doesn't sleep at all. He's got this.
