June 10—The Role of Prayer for New Believers, Part 2


Read


Ephesians 3:14-21


Reflect


Paul’s prayer for new believers can serve as a model for us as we pray. The new believers in our lives can learn how to pray as they listen to us (see 2 Timothy 2:2). One of the things that Paul prayed and so should we is that the new believers would be “filled with all the fullness of God” (verse 19 ESV). That, of course, should also be our prayer for ourselves. In order to be filled with all the fullness of God, ask yourself is there anything that is blocking the flow of that fullness? Is there anything that needs to be removed from your life, so you can be more effective as you disciple others?


Engage


Reread the Scripture passage. You’ve now read it two days in a row. Does anything stand out to you differently than it did yesterday? Consider the ENGAGE questions again. Don’t be afraid of the repetition. We learn more about God each time we read and reread his Word.


· What does it say about God?


· What does it say about us?


· Is there a promise to trust?


· Is there a command to obey?


· How will I apply this Scripture to my life?


· Who will I show that I care by sharing this truth?


Memorize


Now read this week’s memory verse, Jude 1:20. Spend a few minutes working to memorize it.
