Sunday

 
Scripture: “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”
Psalm 46:1
Prayer: Oh Lord, help us to find refuge in you, and you alone.  In Christ we pray, Amen.
Accountability: Have there been times in your life when you made work, materialism, alcohol, drugs, shopping, or even your children or husband your refuge, rather than finding it in God’s tender arms and care?  Did you find those places only provided temporary ‘refuge?’  Turn to Jesus’ Word, and in doing so, he will secure you forever in his loving arms and tender care.

Monday

 
Scripture: “So the people shouted, and the trumpets were blown.  As soon as the people heard the sound of trumpet, the people shouted a great shout, and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they captured the city.” Joshua 6:20
Prayer: Dear Lord, bless us with the ability to tear down the walls.  Allow us to practice your grace with others in our lives that might hurt us or cause us pain. I am grateful for your grace and your mercy oh Lord.  Amen.
Accountability: Share a time when you built a wall.

Tuesday

 
Scripture: “Listen to this:  Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know.  This man was handed over to you by God’s set purpose and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross.  But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.” Acts 2: 22-24
Prayer: Jesus, forgive us of our sin.  Help us to receive you, and believe that you are the savior who gave it all, so that we might have eternal life.  Help us to share this news of hope with everyone we meet.  In your name we pray, Amen.
Accountability: If you are a believer, do you remember all of the times you had to share Christ with someone else, and lacked the courage to do so?  Ask God to hold you accountable for all of the times you have had the opportunity to witness to others and did not do so and He will give you a boldness you never thought possible.

Wednesday

 
Scripture: “This is the assurance we have in approaching God:  that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  And if we know that he hears us – whatever we ask – we know that we have what we asked of him.” I John 5: 14 & 15
Prayer: Precious Lord, please create in us a hunger and thirst for Your Word and time alone with you.  Help us prioritize this time each day and glorify You for every blessing and answered prayer.  And please give us the patience, trust and grace to wait for Your direction.  Amen.
Accountability: If you are not already doing so, try and carve out 15 to 30 minutes at least 5 days a week for some quiet time, during which you read Scripture and lift up prayers for you and for others.  For 30 days, make notes on your prayers and the answers that the Lord provides, and discuss how this small schedule adjustment has impacted your life.

Thursday

 
Scripture: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
Prayer: Dear Lord, use us to build your masterpiece. We know that even our past pain, sorrow and hurts are all instruments of your work and will serve to accentuate the greatest that you have built in us.  We are a work in progress, and we are grateful for this journey through life that your grace has afforded us.  Amen.
Accountability: Share a time that your brilliantly colored “mosaic pieces” were accentuated.  

Friday

 
Scripture: “Oh Timothy, my son, be strong with the strength Christ Jesus gives you.” 2 Timothy 2:1
Prayer: Oh Lord, thank you for your amazing grace.  And continue to humble us before you such that all the world sees is you in our daily lives.  Make us a testimony for you.  In Jesus name, Amen.
Accountability: Think about a person, family member or friend in your life who reminded you of the presence of God when you were going into unchartered territory or a completely new endeavor.  Take a moment to stop and thank God for this individual, and make a commitment to be reminded often of the time they took to offer you encouragement.

Saturday

 
Scripture: “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
Prayer: Dear Lord, please use us to influence and encourage other women to form groups of scripture, prayer and accountability.  Thank you for the friendship and love among us, and that our light will shine only to
Glorify you.
Amen.
Accountability: What benefits do you hope to obtain in an accountability group through scripture and prayer?
