Foundations in Leadership 1.4 For South Columbia Baptist Church Awana

This is handout 1.4 (The Leader's Prayer) in Foundations to Leadership. I wrote it to help develop the Youth Leaders (LITs) in our Awana Club. This hand-out and others like it are given the the kids at the end of club to take home and review during the week. They write out answers to the questions which they then discuss with a mentor, and return to club. I do not object to it being copied and used.
Foundations of Leadership 1.4

Paul's Unique Example of Christian Leadership -Prayer.

Paul spoke often of his prayers for those he ministered to; a few examples are noted here.

· "I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus." 1 Corinthians 1:4, NIV.
· "I have not stopped giving thinks for you, remembering you in my prayers." Galatians 1:16, NIV.
· "I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy..." Philippians 1:3-4. NIV.
· "We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you." Colossians 1:3, NIV.
· "We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers, we continually remember before our God and Father for your work..." 1 Thessalonians 2:2 NIV.
· "With this in mind we constantly pray for you..." 2 Thessalonians 1:11, NIV.
· "For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you..." Colossians 1:19, NIV.
· "I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers..." Philemon 1:4, NIV.

If the Apostle was so busy building up the church where do you think he found time to pray?

Why do you think Paul spent so much time in prayer?

From the examples above what ways did the Apostle Paul pray? And what kind of prayers did he pray?

What attitudes do the Apostle’s prayers have in common?

How can you follow the example of the Apostle Paul in Prayer?

How can you pray for the kids regularly?

Review with a mentor and bring back to club. Mentor’s signature. ___________________ .
