Spiritual Practices in Youth Ministry

Prayer, Fasting, and Grace, Tony Campolo and Shane Claiborne – Video and Discussion Outline

Dr. Tony Campolo and Shane Claiborne discuss prayer, fasting and grace.

Questions for Discussion:

  1. What are the prayer exercises that we can teach youth—some of them very old—that are still relevant and helpful for training?
  2. What would it look like to pray for God to come alive inside of us, and inside of our young people? And how might prayer lead to our spirits becoming more receptive to the Spirit at work?
  3. What does it mean to consider that the opposite of grace is entitlement? And what does that say about how we pray?
