Easter in Ephesians Day 2 // Monday March 29

Welcome to another time in prayer and in the book of Ephesians.  Thanks for spending time looking at Easter through the lens of this book of the Bible.

Gratitude:  Having a heart that is thankful is very enriching.  It is enriching to us, to the people around us and to our relationship with Jesus.  Stop and ask Jesus to bring to your mind something for which you are grateful today.  Take the time that you need.  Pay attention to the first thing that comes to mind.  It could be as simple as “warmer weather”.   I know I am sure grateful for the warmer weather.  Once you have something to be grateful for … spend some time thanking God for that.

Invitation: Now ask Jesus to come and lead your time together.  Express that He is welcome to lead you.

Engage Scripture and ask for highlights:  The Bible is God’s Word.  Jesus can highlight specific parts of the Bible so that we are deeply impacted by them.  Ask Him to do that for you as you read through Ephesians 2:1-10 now.

What were some highlights?  What stood out to you as you read through this passage?  What did Jesus highlight for you as you read?

Respond:  How is Jesus leading you to respond to the things that He has highlighted to you as you read through this passage?  Spend a few moments asking Jesus how He wants you to respond.  Commit to following through on the response(s) that Jesus leads you to.

Is there anything else? Take a moment to ask Jesus this question and then wait for His answer.  He may have more to show you before you move on.

Pray for Heartland:  Pray that our church family would experience more of God’s mercy at Easter.

Pray that we would have clarity on the “good works” that God has prepared for each of us.

Pray for our Small Groups.  Pray that the leaders and the group members would grow in their love for God and for each other.  Pray for a greater walking with the Holy Spirit.

Pray that each of us would have a stronger sense of God’s calling in our lives-no matter where we work.
