Item description for Imaginative Prayer for Youth Ministry: A Guide to Transforming Your Students' Spiritual Lives Into Journey, Adventure, and Encounter (Youth Specialties) by Jeannie Oestreicher & Larry Warner...

Overview
This book describes how imaginative prayer can powerfully transform our spiritual journeys, and it provides a collection of imaginative prayer exercises for youth ministry use.
Description:
How often have you struggled to help your students really grasp God?s love? How often have you been frustrated by their Sunday school answers when you try to draw them into the depths of God?s story? You?re not alone. Many students (and even youth workers brave enough to admit it) are experiencing emptiness, lack of passion, and a growing inability to hear from God.

But there is hope. Just use your imagination?

God created our imaginations. Why not harness them to encounter our creative God in brand new ways? Try it right now:

Picture yourself in a boat with Jesus as the seas grow rough, as the water crashes over the bow. Notice what?s going on?notice your emotions at this critical moment. What is your sense of Jesus? presence in the midst of the storm?

The latter is just one example of the many guided exercises within the pages of Imaginative Prayer for Youth Ministry. You?ll find tools that can help you use imaginative prayer as a means of experiencing the God who is continually reaching out to us. Invite your students to open their imaginations (and their five senses) to God?s spirit and allow God to move and speak directly to them through the 50 imaginative prayer exercises inside. They come complete with instructions, environment suggestions, and optional debrief questions?there?s even a topical/Scripture reference index so you can find just the right exercises to suit your needs.

If you want to introduce your students to the God who loves them (in a way that allows them to truly experience that love), imaginative prayer is an effective means to do so?you and your students will never be the same.

Reviews - What do customers think about Imaginative Prayer For Youth Ministry?

Wonderful way to bring peace to your kids  Apr 3, 2008
I love this book. I bought it without many expectation and have been blown away. The book gives you everything you need to lead your youth into contemplative prayer. You enter into your time with a slow down prayer and meditation after which you being your more focuses time with God built around a narrative and imagination. Some of my kids love it and some don't but anyway you slice it, it's a great spiritual discipline for them to learn.
