Young teens have a lot of questions about why Christians do what they do . . . even if they do not ask them out loud. What is prayer? Does God always answer prayer? What about when He seems silent? And what about worship? Is it just a boring church service? A bunch of people wearing choir robes and singing? Uncommon: Prayer and Worship, part of a series of junior high group studies developed by youth ministry expert Kara Powell, helps leaders answer tweens’ questions in ways that make sense for their junior high lives. Through Scripture study, fun activities, stories and discussion, students will understand the what's and whys of prayer and worship and be motivated to make them a part of their spiritual life.
