What are men saying about their Dads in Prayer experience? Watch below as some dads share some of the experiences they have had participating.
Dads in Prayer Small Group Guidelines
- We participate for self-reflection not to give counsel. Matthew 7:3-5 (NLT)
“And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying to your friend, ‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First, get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.
- Listening is the highest form of respect. James 1:19 (AMP)
Understand this, my beloved brothers, and sisters. Let everyone be quick to hear [be a careful, thoughtful listener], slow to speak [a speaker of carefully chosen words and], slow to anger [patient, reflective, forgiving].
- Confidentiality builds trust. Proverbs 17:17 (NLT)
A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need.
- Own your Personal Experience
Speak in the first person. Make I and my statements, not you or your statements. Encourage each participant to grant permission to be held accountable to this commitment. Proverbs 27:19 As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.
- 60-90 minutes per session Proverbs 10:19 (NIV)
- Policies The primary purpose of Dads in Prayer small group meetings is for men to grow in their relationship with the LORD through prayer and to have the necessary resources to provide Christian spiritual leadership for their families and in their communities. Any other topics should not be brought into the small group meetings. We specifically prohibit:
1) Solicitation of any kind within the group;
2)Conversation about politics; and
3) Using or sharing peoples contact information without their permission.
