Several years ago at Advent, folks would gather after fellowship for a blessing and PTA circle. This wasn't a parent-teacher meeting (!) but an opportunity to bless each other around the circle and then share thoughts and concerns that were on our hearts. The PTA stood for types of prayers: Praise, Thanks, Ask (for ourselves or others, including forgiveness). Consider these 14 prayer chapters and discern what type of prayer each is illustrating. And then practice your own!
