Pray for somebody

You don’t always know what people are going through and trust me, everyone has challenges, E V E R Y O N E, no matter how perfectly they portray their lives. Some have more challenges than others but there is still a need.

Galatians 6:2 (
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (

God instructs us in these verses to carry each other’s burdens and to pray continually. HE knows that prayer is powerful. HE works through our prayers to meet our needs and those we pray for as well.

Everyone needs prayer because everyone needs God.
Who can you pray for someone this week?



Living life right.

Do you like instructions to be specific so that you’re clear on what is expected of you?
Check out Romans 12:14-21 (

Here are some clear instructions that are helpful to prayerfully consider in your own circumstances and to begin living them out. Paul knew how hard life can be – how we can be mistreated, experience evil and have enemies. But he also highlights that we have reasons to be joyful with others too.

We overcome evil with good, which is a clear statement!
How can you follow these ways of living?
What will it look like for you in the classroom, on the school field or…?



Grace upon grace.

Read Ephesians 4:1-7 (

Paul’s opening line in this passage “as a prisoner of the Lord” tells us that Paul was a prisoner when he wrote this! He was in permanent lockdown, facing isolation and restrictions beyond what we’re experiencing. Yet he urges us to live a life worthy of the calling we have received from God, by living His way.

Paul outlines some of what this looks like. Then he gives the encouragement that ‘to each of us grace has been given’. This is our source of strength!

Which of these qualities of living do you find hard?
Ask God for His grace to help you!



Just keep running.

When you’re in athletics running track races or long distance do you keep looking out for the signs to see how close you are to your finish line?

Check out Philippians 3:12-16 (, 20-21 (

Perhaps now with lockdown restrictions the days feel repetitive and boring.
We’re reminded here to keep pressing on, straining forward towards the goal to win the prize! It may seem like a long way off but our final destination is heaven, where we have our prize waiting for us.

We are people of heaven and our Saviour is from there!
Keep jogging with Jesus in this marathon!
