Small Group Tip #3 Praying for One Another
By Elizabeth Marks
One way to get everyone involved in praying for each other is to pass out a 3×5 index card to each person in the group.
Instruct them to write their name at the top and specific prayer requests on the index card. Also, remind your members the specific prayer requests should be focus on themselves not for someone else. Give them suggestions such as what’s my next spiritual step, what area am I specifically struggling with, or what strained relationship do I need to work on, etc.
Collect all the cards, shuffle and pass one out to each member making sure no one gets their own.
Instruct the members pray for that member over the coming week.
At the next meeting, collect the cards, shuffle and pass out again, making sure no gets the same name as last time.
Do this for about a month. After that, set aside time in group to discuss what God has being doing in each person’s life.
