GPS: Grow, Pray Study Guide for the week of
January 17 – 23, 2021
To gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be a deeply committed follower of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. To be able to recognize your experiences of God and to discover God in new and different ways.
Let me encourage you to be in deep prayer this week. Pray for our country to find ways to unite, to work together to be respectful of one another. Find a quiet place to pray John Wesley’s prayer every day.
I am no longer my own, but thine. Put me to what thou will, rank me with whom thou will.
Put me to doing, put me to suffering. Let me be employed by thee or laid aside for thee, exalted for thee or brought low for thee.
Let me be full, let me be empty. Let me have all things, let me have nothing. I freely and heartily yield all things to thy pleasure and disposal.
And now, O glorious and blessed God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, thou art mine, and I am thine. So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, let it be ratified in heaven. Amen
After you have prayed John Wesley’s prayer…spend several minutes in silence listening for God to reveal, to give you an epiphany of the one step God wants you to take to be in closer relationship with God and with your neighbor.
