The electronic Week of Prayer (eWOP) is held on the second week of November. It happens on Facebook via the GC Youth Ministries page (https://www.facebook.com/GCYouthMinistries/). However, the videos can also be retrieved from the GC Youth Ministries account on YouTube.
We live in a defined circle of influence. This ‘circle’ is a social, relational, or even interpersonal space which penetrates every area of our lives. The eWeek of Prayer will look at how Christ’s love for us should impact or guide our love for others and decisively affect our circles of influence.
Day 1 – Christ’s sacrificial love
Impacting Your Circle of Influence
Key text: John 15:3
You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
Day 2 – Love – an extension of thankfulness!
Campus Ministry service through love.
Key text: 1 John 4:8
Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Day 3 – Love – the heart of true forgiveness
Love and Friendships
Key Texts: 1 Corinthians 16:14, Do everything in love.
Luke 10:29, But the man wanted to show that the way he was living was right. So he said to Jesus, “But who is my neighbour?”
Day 4 – Love – A component of trust
Loving our workmates
Key text: Jeremiah 17:7-8
“But those who trust in the Lord will be blessed. They know that the Lord will do what he says.
They will be strong like trees planted near a stream that send out roots to the water. And they have nothing to fear when the days get hot. Their leaves are always green. They never worry, even in a year that has no rain. They always produce fruit.
Day 5 – Love – An act of obedience
Loving our family members
Key text: James 1:22-25 22 Do what God’s teaching says; don’t just listen and do nothing. When you only sit and listen, you are fooling yourselves. 23 Hearing God’s teaching and doing nothing is like looking at your face in the mirror 24 and doing nothing about what you saw. You go away and immediately forget how bad you looked. 25 But when you look into God’s perfect law that sets people free, pay attention to it. If you do what it says, you will have God’s blessing. Never just listen to his teaching and forget what you heard.
Day 6 – Love – The highest form of worship
Key Text: 1 Samuel 15:22
But Samuel answered, “Which pleases the LORD more: burnt offerings and sacrifices or obeying his commands? It is better to obey the LORD than to offer sacrifices to him. It is better to listen to him than to offer the fat from rams.
