Home Groups Combined Prayer MeetingThursday 7.45 pm at the church.

Home Group questions for the Friday group.

  1. How easy do you find it to have Jesus conversations with Christian friends and family? What helps you to talk naturally about your relationship with Jesus? What hinders you? What one thing can you commit to which will help you develop Jesus conversations?
  2. Paul values unity more than we tend to today. In our country at the moment (and across the Western world) there is a lot of disunity. What ways can Jesus’ people live a life of prophetic challenge to our culture by placing the same value on unity as Paul does?
  3. More practically and personally: is there a situation or a person with whom you are not currently united? What step can you take to move toward unity?
  4. Paul is clear that prayer is powerful, vital, and a privilege. Do you believe this? In what ways do you live out your belief that this is true?
  5. Move from theory to practice – in daily life, do you live like prayer is powerful, vital, and a privilege? What step can you take to get better at this?
  6. In what ways is it possible to give God a “get out clause” when we pray? Who are we protecting when we do that – God or ourselves?
  7. Are we too hasty to declare our prayers unanswered?

Please pray for Abigail and Joe as they get married in Cornwall next Saturday, 27th July.  We wish them God’s blessing for their future together.
