Ephesians 4:1-12

Please take a moment to pray these scriptures over someone today.  You may want to READ or LISTEN to the chapter before you begin.

4:1    May ______ live a life worthy of the calling he/she has received. Like Paul, may ______ be one who urges others to live this way as well.

4:2    May ______ be completely humble and gentle. Help ______ to be patient, bearing with others in love.

4:3    May ______ make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

4:12     Lord, prepare ______ for works of service so that the body of Christ might be built up.

QUESTION: In what ways do you urge others to live a life worthy of the high calling in Christ?

YOUR STORY of the week:  “91/91 for West Africa.”  The following is an excerpt of a Young Life Africa Facebook post regarding an Ebola update and a call to prayer written by the YL Africa directors. (We are taking this opportunity to stand with YL Africa in prayer, to help YOU know how you can pray for them specifically, and to use our network of over 2,500 email & social media followers to hopefully bring about many, many more prayers before the Lord on the behalf of everyone in West Africa.)

“I have a plea for more prayer in a focused and committed way: 91/91 for West Africa. Psalm 91 has come up again and again in my conversations with our Young Life teams in Liberia and Sierra Leone as a source of strength and hope. It seems appropriate and powerful for us to join them (in prayer) in this.
 Would you commit to praying Psalm 91 every day for 91 days for West Africa? We will begin on Monday, Oct. 28th and end 91 days later on Sunday, January 26thPlease get everyone possible to join us in this prayer. Pray for an end to this disease. Pray for our Young Life leaders and kids in West Africa–for their protection, for their courage as they bring light in darkness, for mobilization of resources, and that God would be glorified in this. Thank you for standing with our friends and leaders in YL Liberia and Sierra Leone and for standing with the people of West Africa in this dark time.”
