Brushing Teeth and Praying?

28 Oct 2019

We believe that praying makes a difference. When we work, we work but when we pray God works! We got together with our students and asked the question “How do we make praying for our university friends a part of our daily life?” We had tried before with only limited success. How we could make praying a daily habit, one that we would never forget?

Brushing teeth

All of us brush our teeth every single day and we never forget. Could we make praying for our friends a new habit by connecting it with an existing habit (brushing teeth)? We started with 3 students and we now have 16 students praying daily. We hope to keep expanding this.

What do we do?

When we start brushing our teeth we smile and give thanks to God for the many things he has blessed us. We then pray for 3 university friends - the same three friends everyday. We pray that:

  1. God will open their heart
  2. God will create opportunities for us to listen to our friends and share how Jesus has impacted our life

We keep each other accountable by posting in a WhatsApp group and each student has another student who reminds them if they forget to brush their teeth.

We look forward to seeing what God will do through prayer.
