Pray for Me

October 1, 2023

“Pray for Me”

Ephesians 6:19-20

Take-Home Truth: Darkness is only eliminated through prayer by the Holy Spirit.

Christ-Connection: Prayer is key to making Jesus known!

Recap: (Talk about last week)

1. Who did you pray for last week? Share specific examples.

Engage: (Observe the passage and engage with the text)

2. Read Ephesians 6:19-20 and discuss why Paul focused on asking prayer for himself (cf. 2 Timothy 1:15-16; 2 Corinthians 1:8-11). Talk about this in light of Paul’s suffering.

  • abandonment –
  • desperation –
  • weakness –
  • falsely accused –
  • attacked –

Reflect: (Reflect upon the key take-aways from the sermon)

3. Paul asked the believers to pray that “words may be given to me.” In light of this, discuss the following:

  • How does knowing about Richard’s week help you to pray for him?
  • How can we better pray for the staff with intentionality?

4. Discuss the corrosive effects on church leadership of statements, questions, and actions designed to call into question the authority of leadership.

Respond: (Apply the truths of God’s Word to your heart, affections, and actions)

5. Using the following list, brainstorm ways to make plans to pray for Hope Point leadership (Richard, staff, elders):

  • Monday: abandonment –
  • Tuesday: desperation –
  • Wednesday: weakness –
  • Thursday: falsely accused –
  • Friday: attacked –
  • Saturday/Sunday: words given to advance to the gospel –
