Teaching youth A New Way to pray

Ontario Christian High School in California immersed its students in multicultural and diverse ways of worshipping God. They learned the “you to do God” prayer pattern, which gives God a name and characteristic (e.g., “almighty God”), then names something God has done (“who parted the Red Sea”), and then asks for something (“bless us in this worship service today”). It is a short form of prayer that is focused, personal and immersed in Scripture. In a short video housed on the website of the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, which is dedicated to worship renewal in Christian faith communities, Ben Dykhouse, who co-teaches a daily chapel class at the school, discusses the teaching program and prayer form, and talks about his work teaching students how other faiths worship God.
