National Day of Prayer September 1st Celebrate by organizing a prayer circle. Get permission from residents who wish to participate to pass their prayer request to another resident, creating a prayer chain. Encourage participants to try organizing their prayers utilizing the ACTS of Prayer. Below is some guidance on this practice: “Do you ever sit down to pray and just not know what to say? ‘ACTS’ is a common acronym that Christians use for leading themselves through these moments. Using this well-known tool, you’ll first pray in “adoration” of God, then in “confession,” thanksgiving,” and supplication [petition].” It was used famously by Billy Graham. But it’s no modern fad, its oldest usage dating back to 1883. Many believers throughout the years, including me, have needed help knowing what to pray and how to pray it. I’m grateful that ACTS reminds us all to worship, repent, and express gratitude before we present our requests for help. It’s good practice in putting ourselves last, as Jesus would have us do (“So the last will be first…” Matthew 20:16).” Excerpt from Hosting a Bible Study by Allison Lewis Bennett, AD/TXC Source: Anchor Devotional by Haven Ministries. Oct 2016 Ed. Now is the time to connect more than ever and we are forced to make those connections using technology. Add some variety and intimacy to the interactions by panning this heartwarming activity for September. Have your interested residents record themselves reading one of their favorite stories on a video for their grandchildren. Many books can be found for free online or accessed through a Kindle Unlimited account. The other option is to have the child’s parent use a book the child already owns and loves. The resident could read the transcribed words while the parent follows along at home, showing the child the pictures. Be sure and have the family members records the video for a special memory. NOTE: These videos are for personal use only. Special permissions are generally needed for reading an author’s work in a public video, for example your facility’s website.
