Bible Readings: Oct. 21-27

Bible Readings and Prayer Points

We recommend you have a notebook and pen for answering questions and recording your thoughts and insights. Bring this notebook with you to Faith Group for discussions and prayer times. Select a quiet place and consistent time to read and pray. We also recommend you pray for a moment before you read God’s word and ask for his illumination by the power of the Holy Spirit as you read.

Abbreviations:

  • TAI – Think About It
  • PP –Prayer Point

A different approach

We have been in Proverbs now for several months, so perhaps you don’t need the daily questions and prayer points! Can you do it on your own? Yes! Yes you can. So for each day, use the following items to guide you:

  1. What word or phrase captures the heart of each proverb?
  2. Which of these proverbs applies most to my life today?
  3. How can I pray today in light of these truths?

Jot down your thoughts, ponder, and then pray! Do this daily.

Romans 15:22-29

TAI: This is Pastor Dana’s text for this Sunday’s Unwavering message. What has in the past hindered Paul from visiting? (see vv. 20-21) Why does Paul want to go to Spain? What does he hope will happen when he visits the believers in Rome? What motivates the giving of the saints from Macedonia and Achaia? What motivates your giving to the Lord? What do you think it means to “come in the fullness of the blessing of Christ”?

PP: Pray for Pastor Dana as he prepares and preaches. Pray for each teacher in our Faith University and Sunday School classes. This Sunday, tell your teacher (and your child’s!) that you prayed for God’s blessing on them. Ask God to help you be a cheerful giver, motivated by the gospel and its man
