Welcome to prayer focus
Prayer Focus is a monthly series to help new and existing Christians grow in their faith through prayer
For February we will be focusing on Walking
Week 1: 1st March: Walking with friends: Emmaus road
Luke 24v 13-35
Sometimes we need companionship on our journey with God…other Christians, who are just there for us and walk alongside us …we may be sad or need some help. However, we need to keep out eyes on God and be aware of His presence as well as our human companions otherwise we may miss out. What is God telling you this week?
Week 2: 8th March: Walking with purpose.
Ruth chapters 1-4
Read the story again. Sometimes we are called to walk with others on their journey, offer help and support. However, as we do that God will bless us as well. Who does God want you to bless this week?
Week 3: 15th March: Walking a new path reaching out to God listening to his voice.
The song ‘Oceans’ by Hillsong may help this week.
Mary was asked to accept and do something amazing for God but for her it would be difficult. She just stepped out in faith and said yes to being the mother of Jesus.
Letting God guide us even if the adventure is a bit out of our comfort zone. Being a Christian is not a steady existence it is exciting and challenging, his spirit will guide and lead us.
What is God telling you to do in faith this week?
Week 4: 22nd March: Walking with God: Enoch
Gen 5v 21-24
It says he walked with God for 300 years and was no longer there as God took him. So, if you’re finding walking with God difficult remember others have gone before and been able to keep going for a lot longer than we live today. Think about why you are struggling at times.
How close is your walk with God this week?
Week 5: 29th March: Walking the tough paths
Listen to the song ‘You never let go’ by Matt Redmond
Read the Psalm and find ways God is with you …relate them to things in your life; write down the valley of the shadow of death, the places he has sustained you etc.
Remember God is with you this week.
