Prayer is one of the most known and valued virtues of the Christian life, and yet it is also severely misused and underused by believers. As we looked into Colossians 4 on Sunday, we saw that we should be watchful, continual, and thankful in our prayers, and that we should be praying specifically for the spread of the gospel. This week, consider how you pray and what you are praying for. Then pray for the work of the gospel being accomplished this week. And pray specifically for the proclamation of the gospel in our service on Sunday, in both Sunday School classes, in the sermon, in kid's church, and in communion.
PREPARING TO HEAR
Our text for this week is Colossians 4:5-6. We will be talking about our conduct with other people, specifically those outside the fellowship of believers. The supremacy of Christ affects all areas of our life, including our conduct towards outsiders. To prepare for the message, read the text for this week and consider the following questions:
- What does it mean to make the best use of the time?
- What does salty speech look like?
- What kind of person do you find it most difficult to be gracious to?
- How does the supremacy of Christ affect our speech?
Let's pray that God's word is clearly proclaimed and received on Sunday. Pray for believers to be encouraged and strengthened, for unbelievers to be drawn to Christ, and for God to be glorified in all we do.
PREPARING TO SING
Below are the songs we will be singing together on Sunday. Use this as a resource to learn unfamiliar songs, to meditate on Christ-centered truth throughout the week, and teach your children songs that will fill their minds and shape their hearts.
