Romans 15:30-33 NASB
30 Now I urge you, brethren, by our Lord Jesus Christ and by the love of the Spirit, to strive together with me in your prayers to God for me, 31 that I may be rescued from those who are disobedient in Judea, and that my service for Jerusalem may prove acceptable to the saints; 32 so that I may come to you in joy by the will of God and find refreshing rest in your company. 33 Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
- Painful (v. 30)
- Perplexing (v. 31-32)
- Peaceful (v. 33)
- What does Paul ask for in verse 30? What does this tell you about Paul? Is prayer easy for you? What are your honest thoughts about prayer?
- What are the three things Paul asked for in verses 31-32? Were they answered? What is your response when God doesn’t answer prayer the way you would like?
- Why does Paul use the word “strive”, which is the same word we get “agony” from, when he talks about prayer?
- How does prayer promote unity and mission in the church?
