The Time is Now – Week Two Week 2:
Foretold Long Ago:
December 14

Advent: The Time is Now

1. Do you find it difficult to wait for answers to prayer? What have you been praying for for a long time?

2. Have you been let down by other human beings who have failed to deliver on their promises to you? Have you allowed this to shape your perception of God and other people?

3. Have you thanked God for what He has done in your life recently? How could you get into a habit of thankfulness in your Christian life?

Group activity:
Each write a list of things you have prayed for which you have received. Write another list of things you are still praying for that have not yet been given to you. Find two large envelopes and write on one ‘Please’ and on the other ‘Thank You’. Put all the answered prayer lists in the ‘Thank You’ envelope and ask each member of the group to share one answered prayer. Put all the lists of things you are still praying for in the ‘Please’ envelope and ask each member of the group to share one prayer need. Spend time in prayer for one another, thanking God for His faithfulness in the past and lifting your needs to Him.
