Regular Time: Prayerful
By: Reality SF
Regular Time – Prayerful
Goal: To practice our value of faith as we bring things before God, trusting that He hears and answers our prayers.
Scripture from Sunday:
You can find Sunday’s sermon, including the week’s central Scripture, at the top of the Sermons page.
Open your time welcoming one another.
Connection and Unity Exercise (using Mutual Invitation):
Share with the group observations and experiences you have had while practicing silence during the past week. How has it been life-giving for you, and when has it been hard?
Choose a silence practice from the “Practices of Silence” document or do the practice of silence that your group has agreed to practice together during this season.
Read this Sunday’s Scripture aloud.
- Was there anything from this Sunday’s Scriptures and sermon that you found to be particularly profound, hopeful, or inviting?
- What did you find difficult or challenging about this passage or sermon?
- Have everyone answer this final question using Mutual Invitation: Were there any invitations from Jesus to you during Sunday’s gathering that you’d like prayer for?
End your time in corporate prayer as a group. Pray for anything that people requested and express anything you have heard spoken or expressed during your group discussion (similar to how we pray with the Unity Prayer).
