What will you do?

 

Tuesday – Read James 1:2-8

What reason do we have for hope in the middle of our trials?

When you are in a tough spot, are you more likely to pray for relief or for wisdom?

As you take time to pray for your needs and the needs of others ask for God’s wisdom and guidance in each situation.

 

Wednesday – Read John 16:19-24

What jumps out to you in this passage?

Spend some time in quiet before God and invite Him to speak to you.

 

Thursday – Read Acts 2:42-47

List five things the early church did.

How did these activities shape their relationship with God and with each other?

Friday – Read John 17:6-18

This is a portion of Jesus’ last prayer with His disciples before His crucifixion. Why is our “oneness” so important to Him?

What are some things that threaten the “oneness” in our church? In our Yearly Meeting? In the church worldwide?

Take time to pray that God would protect us from those threats.
