Us to God: Worship and prayer

Start this session with song and prayer. Some weeks, you could also make time for prayer requests and ask women to share prayer items.

Me to us: Sharing

Choose one of the questions below to share your stories. If the group consists of more than eight people, divide into smaller groups.

  • Have you ever been given a special burden of prayer? Share what happened.
  • Who are the people you know who pray continually? How do they pray continually?
  • Growing up, who were the women prayers (“prayer worriers”) in your family?
  • Have you ever been given a special burden of prayer? Share what happened.

God to us: Preaching

The Spirit gives some people a special burden of prayer.
The Spirit gives some people a special burden of prayer. Anna had such a burden (Luke 2:36-38). She prayed continually. She also saw the answer to her prayer that day in the person of the Christ-child. We all need to learn to pray like this (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Mothers are prayers (“prayer warriors”).
Like Anna many Christian mothers who suffer hardships in these days, have learnt to plead with God for their children and husbands, for food on the table and all their other needs.

Faith and prayer go together.
Faith and prayer go together. Prayer is only meaningful if we believe that the One to whom we pray will hear our prayers and answer us. The more we experience his help, the more our faith and trust in Him are strengthened.
