Dear Jesus, thank you for loving us. We’re so sorry that we don’t always realize you can do anything, save us from any storm, bless us in any mess, lift us up from the lowest depths. Please forgive us. We ask today, right now, that you give us big faith to match the greatness of our big God, to help us with our unbelief and show up where we need you most. We ask all these things in your precious and holy name, amen.
· As a group, put together a list of each member’s God-sized ask and commit to praying over that list daily.
· Promise each other that your LifeGroup will get creative in finding ways to give back to God through this series’ special offering Pastor Bil mentioned, then pray that God will bless that big ask.
The wife of a man from the company of the prophets cried out to Elisha, “Your servant my husband is dead, and you know that he revered the Lord. But now his creditor is coming to take my two boys as his slaves.” Elisha replied to her, “How can I help you? Tell me, what do you have in your house?” “Your servant has nothing there at all,” she said, “except a small jar of olive oil.” 2 Kings 4:1-2 NIV
Elisha said, “Go around and ask all your neighbors for empty jars. Don’t ask for just a few. Then go into your house with your sons and shut the door behind you. Pour olive oil from your flask into the jars, setting each one aside when it is filled.” 2 Kings 4:3-4 NIV
So she did as she was told. Her sons kept bringing jars to her, and she filled one after another. Soon every container was full to the brim! “Bring me another jar,” she said to one of her sons. “There aren’t any more!” he told her. And then the olive oil stopped flowing. When she told the man of God what had happened, he said to her, “Now sell the olive oil and pay your debts, and you and your sons can live on what is left over.” 2 Kings 4:5-7 NLT
