Life Questions – Prayer
These questions are for you to consider carefully and apply to your life. Read Jeremiah 29:4-14 and think about the following:
ICEBREAKER: Identify themes beginning with ‘P’ in the passage.
(v7) What is your community? How do you seek peace for it?
(v7) What does it mean to you to pray for the prosperity of the city?
(v11) Share the plans that God has for you. Pray for each other.
