DISCUSSION GUIDE: July 7 – Justin Gill

“I’ll Pray For You”

LIFE: What is something we say in passing but we don’t actually mean?


  1. Read James 5:16.
  2. Have you said “I’ll pray for you” in the past? What did you mean when you said it?  Was there any follow through?
  3. Who are you praying for currently? 
  4. Look up a few verses about Jesus praying:  Matthew 19:13, Luke 23:34, John 17:9-12.  Who did Jesus pray for? 
  5. In what ways are we becoming less relational as a society?
  6. Who have you seen pray for someone in the moment? 
  7. What keeps us from praying for people out loud in the moment?
  8. James 5:16 says, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”  In his sermon, Pastor Justin posed the question:  As Christians, how can we drop the habit of saying we’re praying and instead pursue righteousness by conveying we’re praying for one another?

      MAKE DISCIPLES: Who is God putting on your mind to pray over? How can we encourage others to pray in the moment?
