Life Questions – Prayer
These questions are for you to consider carefully and apply to your life. Read Acts 4:23-31 and think about the following:
(v23-24) Is our response to news to prayer together? How might we do this more?
(v24-30) Pick out the 4 different sections of this prayer and think about how we pray for situations.
(v31) They received a physical and immediate answer. What kind of answers to prayer do you see/experience?

Lord, thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit; that we can experience You and connect with You through the Spirit. Please help us to find ways of joining together regularly in prayer, to support each other and to pray for our world and the people in it, whether we know them personally or not. We know that prayer makes a difference, so help us to always turn to You and have faith in Your response! Amen.
