STUDY/DISCUSSION

Small Group Leaders- Please always make the effort to have each person engage in the discussion. Remember that the goal is that your group would have authentic and significant conversation about what God is doing in their lives. Don’t feel pressure to go in-depth on every question, or complete every question. 

Read John 17:1-5 and answer the questions below

  • Why do you think Jesus prayed for Himself?
    • What did Jesus pray for?
      • Define glory.
  • How can your prayers be more focused on the glory of God? 

Read John 17:6-19 and answer the question below

  • What two things did Jesus pray for His disciples? Who, in your life this week, needs you to pray that for them?

Read John 17:20-26 and answer the questions below

  • What did Jesus mean when He prayed that we would be "one" even as He and the Father are one?
    • How is that working out in your life? Relationships? 
  • Why is unity and love so important to the Christian life? 

Read Ephesians 1:15-19 and answer the question below

  • There are many powerful prayers in scripture. Read Paul's prayer for the Ephesians believers and share what you identified with most in his prayer. 

Live It Out:

Dedicate a set amount of time everyday this week (5 minutes, 25 minutes, etc...) to prayer. Spend time praying for yourself, your family, your church, and those around you. Find a place and time where you can escape all interruptions and focus solely on praying and communing with God. 

Prayer Time:

Pray for your “one”. Who is that one person that God is putting on your heart and mind to be praying for and inviting to Easter Services?
