WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT? Every believer should know that prayer is vital to the Christian life and necessary to access the mind of Christ and experience the activity of God. Without daily prayer we choose to live without being connected to God and His voice. Then the good things we do end up being done at the wrong time or the wrong reasons.
There is nothing more affirming and comforting in life than to know that friends are praying for you. Each person in your group has a private list of concerns to be lifted to God for direction, comfort and strength. Each lost person in your class needs to know Christ and the forgiveness and joy He alone can give. We need to pray for each other.
WHAT DO I DO? The most effective way to remember to pray for someone is to listen and understand their need and attach your heart to their situation. The better you know them, the more effective your prayers can be. That’s why the group is so important to a Christian’s growth in Christ.
Help your class pray for one another by choosing to do several of these things:
- Choose prayer partners
- Write down prayer requests
- Share prayer needs on your group’s Facebook page
- Stop to pray when you remember someone’s request
- Hand out prayer reminder cards during class
- Spend time praying during the class session
- As the leader, let them hear you pray for them by name.
Use your creativity to think of more ways to pray for one another.
And keep on praying.
