Rejoice, Pray, Give Thanks!

Open your Bibles to 1 Thessalonians chapter 5 and read verses 16 thru 18.

If you’re wondering God’s will for your life, we find it here in His Word: Rejoice always, Pray without stopping and be thankful in all circumstances. Of course, it’s not easy to in the difficulties of life, but God commands us not to worry and to have faith, believing He’s is in control and He’s for us.

Discuss the following questions together:

1. Why is it important to always rejoice and give thanks in everything situation?                                                                   

2. Why does Paul write to “pray without ceasing” meaning to never stop praying? Why is prayer so important?                                        

3. Practically, what are ways I can do this when in a difficult situation and I just don’t feel like it?

Practical: When in a difficult situation… Stop, and Pray!
