1. Time: Be prompt! Must be on time for Bible study appointments. If crisis and you're going to be late, call if at all possible and explain. This is only being courteous and respectful. Remember our goal is to win their trust and confidence.
2. Social Time: At the beginning of the Bible Study there should be a short period of time to share and get to know each other better. (Approximately 5-10 min.) you the prayer partner may enter into this conversation.
3. Prayer Partner during Study Time: Once the Bible Study has started, you are to be only a prayer partner.
You MUST NOT enter into the conversation! You are greatly needed to pray for the Bible Presenter and for the Student.
Bring a simple Bible study, bring activity or coloring books, if children are in the home, tell them a story, etc to keep them busy so they don’t interrupt the study.
WARNING: YOU MUST NOT enter into Bible study with minor in the home without first seeking permission from the parent(s) and more importantly NEVER be in a separate room with a minor.
Things to Pray for:
For the Holy Spirit to speak through the speaker. To present just what the student needs.
For the Holy Spirit to open their understanding that they might comprehend the Scriptures. Luke 24:45
That they may learn to know God and Jesus Christ for this is eternal life. John 17:3
Help them to see what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God. 1 John 3:1
Bind Satan and any distractions: such as phone calls, visitors, family interruptions, or dog barking.
4. Close with Prayer: Best to leave very quickly, leaving the student with the thought of the study. You can give words of farewell but don't engage in other conversation.
