Discussion | God, Open Our Eyes
The lesson for the story is a prayer, ‘God, open our eyes.’ Today we dove into 2 Kings 6:8-22. Elisha prayed a particular prayer that frames the lesson of this week. God answered Elisha’s prayer. God opened the young man’s eyes to the wonder of God. The young man saw the power of God in the midst of fear, war, and imminent battle. We can still ask this of God today.
- God helped in unexpected ways in this chapter; when was a time God helped you in a way you didn’t expect?
- Just like the young man, fearful and worried, is there something in your life that you are unable to see the support and power of God on your side?
- I am going to break the rules – Going off the last question – We read about Elisha praying and asking God some very specific things in this chapter. Using your answers from the previous question, pray for God to open your eyes to Him! Pray for one another in your groups.
Let’s all read the whole book of Jonah this week.
It is only 4 chapters—a short book. Reading a book as a community can be fun – so we will update you as the process goes – Maybe even have some questions on Instagram for you!
At the end of your discussion, go around the group and ask for prayer requests.
