Not only will each member have ONE prayer goal, but the group will select THREE prayer goals. Goals for a group might be praying for the pastoral ministry, salvation of souls, for the youth ministry, etc. Remember our focus in prayer is not “my will be done,” but “Thy will be done.” So often we pray selfishly. Enlarge your vision and begin to pray for His will. Below are some examples you might consider for group prayer goals. Let the Holy Spirit guide and direct, and be careful not to limit God! These three corporate prayer goals should be selected before going on to Study 2.
Example Goal: As a group we want to see revival in our church youth group. We want to pray that souls will be saved and revived. Our Scripture to support this goal: “... for as soon as
travailed, she brought forth her children.” Isaiah 66:8
Example Goal: As a group we want to see God open doors and expand our Pastor’s ministry. Our Scripture to support this goal: “I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.” Revelation 3:8
The group must select THREE prayer goals that they will pray for corporately in class and outside of class. Be sure to add a supportive Bible verse for each goal.
