Great Stuff — Daily Prayer and Catechesis in the Christian Home

Daily Prayer is something every Christian knows he or she should do. And most want to and even try from time to time. But it’s hard to form the habit. In this video Pastors Mark Lovett (Concordia Lutheran Church, Hoisington, KS) and Phil Hoppe (St. Paul Lutheran Chruch, Ellsworth, KS) talk about the necessity, habit, and ritual of Daily Prayer & Catechesis.

 

About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord, LCMSsermons.com, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

More of his work can be found at KNFA.net.

Great Stuff — Daily Prayer and Catechesis in the Christian Home — 4 Comments

  1. Nice work gentlemen. Thank you. I look forward to the next installment.

    By the way, anyone reading this is asked to pray for rain in the bad-and-getting-much worse drought in Kansas, Oklahoma, parts of Texas and New Mexico. My sister in law said even drinking water is becoming a concern.

  2. This is excellent. This is what should be taking place in the home. Just think how much better our confirmands would be prepared. I do want to pose a question: The Bible gives the responsibility of teaching to the parents, in particular the fathers. When our Pastors teach Catechism are they usurping the God-given responsibility of the parents?

    No, they are doing what the parents and the parent led Sunday School should have been doing since the child could read. No Pastor should have to teach Catechism; confirmation time should be used to explain in depth something the child already knows.
    Or should know. The Pastor should be able to get a little deeper than the Small Catechism to raise knowledgable Lutherans. With the cooperation of the parents, who would first of all have to put confirmation ahead of other activities and get the child there regularly!
