Pray for you, and your group, have a desire to be intentional about prayer. Pray that your group would realize that they should pray according to God’s will, and not their own (1 John 5:14). Pray that the members of your group would realize that God’s plans are greater than our plans, God is trustworthy, and that God works all things to the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose, for he is our good, good Father (Romans 8:28).
