SMALL GROUP BIBLE STUDY


Weekly Discussion Questions to assist in your time together are listed below.


_____________________________

"And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers." Acts 2:42

____________________________


Fellowship isn't just something we do on Sunday mornings. It's gathering together in various groups to discuss Scripture, enjoy each others' company, support each other, share meals, and pray with and for one another. And while we do these things in many ways in our whole-church Sunday gatherings, meeting together through the week in smaller groups allows us to do this in a more intimate setting, allowing us to grow deeper in our relationships with each other and with God.


If you would like to know more about the small groups, please feel free to contact the leaders directly, or you can talk to a pastor or elder, a person who attends a group, or someone in the office.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

June 16, 2019


Reflect:

  • Summer is a great time to experiment with different spiritual disciplines. You can read your Bible outside for instance or take a prayer walk without freezing. How would you like to experiment with your prayer life? Have you ever prayed through our phone directory? Have you ever prayed 3x’s a day? Have you ever prayed Scripture (prayer of Paul or a Psalm)?

Repent

  • What would you like to see changed in your prayer life? Do you not pray about “small” things so as not to bother God? Are your prayers only focused on self or our physical world? Do your prayers include praise or just petitions?

Remember

  • Peter and John were going to the temple at a set hour. How do spiritual rhythms helps us stay consistent in prayer? Can spiritual routines still allow for spiritual intimacy? 
  • Peter and John went to pray together. What are benefits of having prayer times corporately? 
  • Richard Burley then walked us through different aspects of the Lord’s Prayer.  
  • How does the plural aspect of the Lord’s Prayer change how you pray? 
  • Does everyone have the right to address God as Father? Why or Why not?  
  • What does the word Father convey about God’s character? 

Discipleship

  • What complications do we face as a body for praying together? What strategies do you have to address these hurdles?
  • How would you counsel a friend and a believer who believes that he can have his relationship with God and worship each Sunday with his internet or TV pastor and not attend in a local church? 
  • How would you counsel someone who has a negative view of their father and therefore has a difficult time addressing God as Father? 
  • My answer: Everyone’s view of a father needs correcting. That is why we are to pray “Our Father in heaven.” At some level, everyone knows what a good father is. If they didn’t, how could they ever say, “I have had a bad father”? They couldn’t. Obviously this requires grace and time. However, everyone can learn to address God as Father because everyone has an idea of a good father. And everyone needs to have their ideas of father corrected to true father. 
  • What does it mean to you be a “praying church” How would you evaluate whether we are a “praying church?” How would you help us grow as a “praying church”?
