    7. Is it wrong to pray for oneself? What does Paul ask us to do for him in Ephesians 6:19? What this wrong or right?

  • Discussion Questions on Prayer

    1. Prayer is a Christian discipline. There are set times of prayer and also ‘a praying attitude.’ What set times of prayer do you have individually and with others through the week? How can you improve this?

    2. Regarding the praying spirit mentioned above, describe how one can pray through the day as one sees the different needs around him. Give some practical examples.

    3. Prayer requests are special. What should you do if you hear rumors going around? How is this different from prayer requests?

    4. From the frequency with which you pray and the passion and kind of prayers that you bring before God, evaluate what you really believe about prayer. (For example, if I do not pray every day, I really believe that pray is not necessary for each day. If I really did believe it was crucial, then I would pray each day. See the message for more examples.)
