Session 1 – Small Group Study Guide
Lesson 1 – With All Humility
PART I: Before we are qualified to help others, we recognize that we were first helped by Jesus. Knowing that Jesus has first helped us allows us to speak openly and honestly about our struggles in humility with others. In other words, openness “comes not from having to be someone but from resting in Jesus” (13). And one practical way we grow in humility is asking others to pray for us.
- and love free you to be open and vulnerable with others?
PART II: Welch outlines for us a simple way we can ask for prayer on p. 14: (1) Identify trouble in your life; (2) Connect a particular trouble with Scripture.
- What are some of the troubles that others in your life are facing? What Scripture can you connect to those troubles so that you can better pray for them?
- Go back to the trouble(s) in your life that you mentioned in Question #1. What Scripture can you connect to that trouble? Be ready to share this with your small group. If it’s difficult to connect Scripture to your problems, ask your small group for help when you meet.
- Ask someone to pray for your trouble(s) of Question #1, with the Scriptural connection. How did that go? How did you feel?
