Conclusion

What does each of these four points mean for you and your ‘group’?

  1. We - communal
  2. Cry - real
  3. Abba - relationship
  4. Father - safe
  • How will you adjust the way you pray as a result of what the Spirit has made possible?
  • Suggestion: Use Romans 8.15 as a prayer frame for a week - “We cry, “Abba, Father.””
