Church Get Talking
`Britain Get Talking’ is an ITV Mental Wellness campaign to help families get closer. Anxiety and depression in children have apparently risen by 48% since 2004. but talking and listening can build mental wellness, so hence the encouragement to tune back in to the story in our own living room. These next two months, as you can see from articles elsewhere, we are focusing on prayer so with the above initiative in mind that expresses the priority and importance of talking, we want to encourage more talking too, so as well as talking to one another let’s seek creative ways as to how we can step up on talking to our maker. Maybe ask a friend to partner you once a week? Maybe include prayer in a text conversation? Maybe at the end of a family meal time give the whole conversation to God? `Church Get Talking’ Starts right here right now. Try Praying.

Developing an attitude of gratitude
- It’s good to humble ourselves when we pray (2 Samuel 7:18-19)
“O Lord it’s hard to humble, when you’re perfect in every way, I can’t wait to look in the mirror, coz I get better looking each day!”
- Thank God for all that He has done (2 Samuel 7:20-22)
- Thank Him for His faithfulness in the past (2 Samuel 7:23-24)
- Thank Him for His will to be done (2 Samuel 7:25-29)
Conclusion: - All of this praise is before any petition! What about us? We can sometimes either not pray or we do pray but with wrong motives. That’s good to think about too.
