Regarding their list, Forbes states, “There are 7.2 billion people on the planet. These are the 72 who rule the world.” As Christians, we respond: There are 7.2 billion people on the planet, and billions more throughout history. There is only One who rules the world.
Have you been in groups where the prayer requests took more than half the meeting, so the group didn’t finish discussing the lesson for the week? Did you write down all the requests only to get home and feel overwhelmed by all the needs?
Music can inspire your small group meeting and be a way to lead your group to prayer. Sometimes, a simple acapella hymn led by one of our group members is enough to set the tone. Other times, ending our session with a music video by one of the many talented Christian worship leaders allows us to have a moment of quiet, individual worship and prayer.
