Life Questions
These questions are for you to consider individually and in Life Groups; take time going through these and allow questions to create conversation. Read the bible passages above. From the passages in Matthew:
1. Which of the four parables are you attracted to, and why?
2. Think about the value you place on the Kingdom of Heaven.
3. Read verses 44-46: What does it look like for you to give up all to pursue the Kingdom of Heaven?

Lord of all power and might, the author and giver of all good things: graft in our hearts the love of your name, increase in us true faith, nourish us with all goodness, and of your great mercy keep us in the same; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Prayer
Our People: We pray for Karen who has had a fall and for Barbara and Georgina who have lost a husband and father. We pray for healing, comfort and restoration for them.
Our Community: We pray for Good Neighbours Coventry, that their work with the elderly in our City will be blessed with finances and volunteers. We pray that those in receipt of the program will experience quality friendships and access to the love of God through this work.
Our Country: In light of the recent action to ban the production of petrol and diesel cars, we pray that God will guide us in the best way to take care of His planet; we pray for discernment in our treatment of His creation.
Our World: In Chile churches are being burned down and Christians attacked for their faith. Survivors are often too frightened to report attacks and the government is doing little or nothing to help. Pray for peace, government support, courage and healing.
