Five in Focus


  1. Read Colossians 4:2-6

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.  And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.  Pray 

that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should. Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most

of every opportunity.  Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you

may know how to answer everyone.”

  1. Think of the names of five of your friends or acquaintances who do not yet have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
    1. Make a first attempt at identifying a recurrent motivational theme in his/her life.
        1. You might have to guess, which is perfectly acceptable at this time.
    2. Before you meet with your group again, commit to praying for each person daily.
        1. We find that our sovereign God often orchestrates our lives so that we intersect with people on our prayer list in ways that allow us to ask questions about their stories.
        2. Look for chances to start identifying potential motivational themes in their lives. Pray for such divine appointments with the people on your Five in Focus list.


You might like to make a list on paper or in a notebook.  You might want to make a note in your phone.  Either way, choose some method that will keep this list of people top of mind. 

The challenge here is to be praying regularly for your friends and acquaintances to know the Lord.

And again, our five in focus are our favorites in our phone.  😂
