The week of 11 October 2020
Ask: This week, did you notice any parts of your life that you need to change? When did you see people welcoming others?
Pray: Thank God for always welcoming us, and for helping us to change and become more loving.
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul. He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff– they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD my whole life long.
Ask: What does it mean to be a shepherd – what does a shepherd do for their sheep? If God is our shepherd, and we are God’s sheep, what does God do for us? What are you afraid of right now? How can God help you to overcome and face those fears?
Ask: When you think about being tired, what comes into your mind? Why is it important to rest? When you are afraid, is it easier or harder to rest? How can God help us to rest?
Pray: Ask God to take away our fears and replace them with comfort.Ask for the wisdom to know when it is time to rest.
