When we pray, we open ourselves to enter into a deeper realtionship with God. Whether they be upward, inward or outward, our prayers allow us to surrender into complete trust with God. In 1755, John Wesley introduced the Wesley Covenant Prayer as a way for people to not only surrender, but to remember and renew their relationships with Him. As we pray this prayer, we are reminded of the life Christ lived and the love we are called to give to another. And we are reminded of the love we have for our Father. A love given all our heart, soul and mind. Join us as WE begin 2021 taking a look at what it means to renew ourselves through prayer.
Daily Reflections & Prayers Journal
As WE begin a new year, The Water’s Edge would like to encourage each of you to commit to building your prayer life. Over the next 21 days (starting Sunday, January 10th), WE are committing as church to take a look at how our prayer lives can deepen our relationship with God and others.
This workbook is designed to help you along the way.
WE invite you to…
- Read & reflect on each day’s Bible readings.
- Chose one of the week’s “7 Things To Pray For In 7 Days” to pray over each day.
- Choose one the week’s seven Wesley questions to focus on. Take time to reflect inwardly about this question and how you see it reflected in your life that day. (There are 21 total. We have divided them into 3 sets of 7).
- Using the journal pages at the end of this book (or in your own journal), take time to journal your prayers each day.
- Listen to each week’s sermon.
- Read the weekly devotion
- Use “Wesley Reflections: page provided to reflect on what you leaned about each day’s question and how it pertains to you. WE have proviided some questions to help you with this.
- Use the Scripture & Sermon Reflections page to journal any thoughts you have on the readings and/or sermon.
- Choose some of the “Questions To Ponder” to discuss with your House. Church. Spend some time discussing this week’s “Take Action” section to determine ways you can apply this week’s teachings into your daily life. If you are not in a House Church, you may do these on your own, with friends, or as a family. Want to join a House Church?Check out weomaha.com/housechurch for more info.
