Prayer Focus: Triplet Gatherings

 Introduction: Prayer triplets are an opportunity to reach out to God for support, wisdom, healing and strength for oneself, those in your group, and our congregation. This is not to be an experience where people are forced to share things that they are not willing to share.  At the same time it is a time to push oneself to be open with God and those in the group by sharing yourself with the Lord and others in your group.

    What is shared in the group is to be treated with care.  Do not share what others say without their permission.  Do not use this as a gossip time to talk about what others said or did (this is a time to focus on your thoughts, dreams and actions).  Do not use this as a time to be negative about others.  Use this time as an opportunity to open yourself to Christ and to the vision that he has for you, and his congregation here.

    Each group is asked to keep a journal of thoughts and experiences as a reminder of what issues are lifted up for prayer, what insights are gained about the weekly focuses.  The group is asked to share about their experience by sending a note of insights or description of the impact of the meeting to Rev. Wallace (swallacegs@aol.com or bring to the church office). 

   Each meeting is 60 minutes long.  There is to be a meeting each of the next 5 weeks at a place and time that is convenient for the group of three.  A guide for the week’s meeting will be provided for your use.

 Week One: Please meet sometime during the week of June 22-28th
Theme: Glorifying and Honoring God

 Prayer: Lord, we are seeking your presence and asking for your direction in this time.  Thank you for each of us in this group.  Help us to be willing to listen to each other and to you.  Help us to be willing to be molded by you.  For this we pray in Jesus name. Amen

 Scripture: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name”    Matthew 6:9

              Have someone read this passage and then take at least a minute for the group to sit in silence
             reflecting on it.  You can repeat it over and over in your minds thinking about each word in
            the sentence, you can think about what this has meant to you over the years, and you can think
           about how you have been respectful of God over the years.

 Questions for Reflection and Discussion:
            How have you seen God honored?
            How do you feel like God has been honored by our church?
            How do you feel like you have honored God?
            Are there anyways that you feel like you have resisted honoring God? (This is a question that
                        the participants may choose to answer out loud or they many spend a few moments thinking
                        individually about it.  While it can be tempting to not share your thoughts with one another
                        on this topic, by sharing you will increase the impact and potential of this time).
            How do you hope that our Church will honor God in the next month & year?

 Sharing of Prayers:
            Share individually about where you are in life.  This may be personal struggles, joys, opportunities, fears,
            hurts or dreams (having to do with the church or that have nothing to do with the congregation).  This is
           not a time to point fingers at others but to lift up our feelings and thoughts with sensitivity.

 Have each person pray out loud lifting up at least a few words about the topic of the week, the needs lifted
up by himself/herself or another.  Also pray for God to mold and shape you and Christ’s church here.

 Closing: Each person share how he/she will honor God this week and “hallow the Lord’s name”. After each person shares the group responds: “May you be honored by us this week O Lord.”
