Self-reflection

Take a few minutes to reflect on these questions personally before you get to the discussion questions as a group.

  1. Are you satisfied with your prayer life?
  2. Are you hearing from the Lord?
  3. What is your prayer life pattern now?
  4. How important is prayer to you?
  5. If you answered ‘No’ to question 1 or 2, are you prepared to try Jesus’s model?

For discussion

  1. What is there in today’s word that might be a challenge for you?
  2. How would you like your group to be a support to you to overcome your challenges?
  3. What specifically are you going to do differently this week in your prayer life?
