Preparing for the Gathering - Matthew 6:9

SWBC Pulpit square

Prepare your heart for our Sunday Morning Gathering by looking through these suggestions that will assist you in making the most of our time together.

You will find tangible suggestions for putting scripture to action in your personal life and in our corporate body, links to the songs we will sing, and lyrics for you to prepare for our corporate singing.

Please see the Preparing for the Sermon post for suggestions in thinking more critically through the passage, meditating more intently on the text, and prayerfully seeking wisdom to deepen your understanding of the passage to be preached this Sunday.

Intentionally Act

  • Read Matthew 6:7-13 again, then go back and focus on vs. 9 for this week.
  • How significant is the difference of praying to “Our Father who is in heaven” rather than speaking to another human? Express thankfulness to our God for His sovereignty, revelation of Himself, and love for His children.
  • Consider how to pray this prayer this week, as well as Rom 15:30-33 from last week.
  • Consider how you could use verse 9 specifically in witnessing to an unbeliever. Make plans to share the gospel with someone this week.
  • Click the links below to find the lyrics and recordings of the songs planned for our gathering this Sunday; practice the songs, study the lyrics and sing together.
  • Pray for those leading our corporate gathering this week and for the Holy Spirit’s work as the Word of God is further explained and applied: Dawson Bryant: music; Terry Engling: Elders' prayer & scripture reading; Bret Capranica: teaching.
