While there are no formal ‘rules’ for what a group might do, there are 3 key elements that we recommend practicing in every Apprenticeship Prayer Partner relationship.1. REFLECT
on the Bible over the past week and focus on real-time application. James 1:22 (NLT) says: But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.
Don’t get sidetracked by debate and theory - wrestle with the implications in your day to day life! 2. SHARE ABOUT YOUR WEEK
and how you made out in some areas of spiritual growth you are working on.
Great questions to start with could be:
3. PRAY FOR AND LISTEN IN PRAYER
- “Where this past week did you sense the prompting of Jesus and did you obey?
- “Where did you see Jesus at work in your life this past week?”
for each other.
Having someone pray for you and listen in prayer for you are some of the greatest gifts we can both give and receive. Every time you get together, create adequate space for prayer.
