Small Groups Bible Study – August 9

Pray Without Ceasing 1

 Prayer and Fasting

 “Why do we pray? How do we pray?”
Scripture for Review: 

Matthew 6: 5-18


Discuss a time you visited a place that invoked awe and wonder? 

Questions for Discussion: Please discuss one, or more, of the following questions. 
  1. If God answered your prayers over the last seven days, would the world be any better?
  2. Our society values independence and promotes a life of “comfortableness,” but God wants us to lean on Him. Share about a time when you truly relied on God to carry you through a challenge. 
  3. As Pastor Greg stated, fasting is feasting on the reliance of God. Share about a time when you fasted and how it changed your dependence on God. 
  4. Going forward, this week, how can you make God your priority? 
Prayer: Pray the Lord’s prayer together, using the Passion Translation. 

Our Father, dwelling in the heavenly realms,

may the glory of your name

be the center on which our lives turn.

Manifest your kingdom realm,

and cause your every purpose to be fulfilled on earth,

just as it is fulfilled in heaven.

We acknowledge you as our Provider
