The Word of God and Prayer
Session Four Worksheet for Group Four
Praying the prayer of faith
Prayer and the Word
Holding on to God’s promises
Enduring in prayer
God’s Word and prayer go hand in hand.
So in order to become people of prayer,
we need to develop a vital relationship with the Word of God,
such as hiding the Word of God in our hearts with Tell THE Story.
We need to grow in the faith that comes from knowing the Holy Bible
and calling on God to fulfill God’s promises.
Because God understands how hard it is for us to realize that no situation is too big for God, God has filled the Holy Bible
with reminders of God’s awesome power and promises of God’s faithfulness.
We need these reminders as encouragement
whenever we face those big, immovable “mountains” that challenge our faith.
Why should any of us wait one more minute to receive what we need from God?
...Let this be our day to experience a breakthrough moment
in which we will receive help through the loving power of our prayer-answering God.
The great challenge is to keep praying and enduring in prayer and persevering in prayer
until that moment of favor comes, when God does what God has promised to do.
NOTE FOR GROUP FOUR MEMBERS: During the morning plenary sessions, please use the back of this worksheet (other blank sheets of paper are avaklable) to write down insights you gather from the content of the Session Four video in the light of your prayer expereince. Also, based on what you see and hear on the Session Four video, how would you answer the following question: "For the sake of God, our congregation, and our community, what's the next step(s) for our Local Church to become the House of Prayer God wants us to be?" If you are comfortable doing so, then be prepared to share your insight and answers with the other Group Four members in the afternoon dialogue session. After your group dialogue session, elect a spokesperson to present to the other five groups some select insight and answers (presentation time 10 minutes or less).
