Brush Teeth, Listen to God

scripture on mirror

Place a favorite scripture, or the scripture your church is focusing on that week on your mirror. You may choose to write on your mirror with a wipe-off marker, or print your scripture on colored paper and tape to your mirror. Invite members of your household to do the same. Scripture Suggestion: Lamentations 3:22-24


tooth brush

As you pick up your tooth brush and put on toothpaste say: “Lord help me hear what you are saying to me today”

As you brush your teeth, read the scripture silently and slowly, if time allows read more than once. Take a moment of silence after each reading, stilling your mind as you let the words sink in.

If you have younger children you can read the scripture or say a small part of the scripture while you help them brush their teeth. Or you can sing a song as they brush:

Suggested song: This is the day (United Methodist Hymnal #657)

This is the Day, (This is the Day), that the Lord has made, (that the Lord has made). I will rejoice, (I will rejoice), and be glad in it (and be glad in it). This is the day that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. This is the day, (this is the day), that the Lord has made.

As you rinse and put away your toothbrush say: “Thank-you God for your Word. Amen.”
