Your Personal Grow-Pray-Study (GPS) Guide

Be An Advocate

Stone Moving Savior


Church@Home | GiveKeep Calm and Quarantine On

This week’s Grow Pray Study (G.P.S) Guide provides an opportunity for a devotional framework to read through the book of Acts. Each day’s readings are a chapter from Acts and how the church began and still grows.

Before you read, pray:

“Speak, Lord, your servant is listening.”

As you read each day, Pastor Burkey encourages you to use the S.O.A.P. method of devotional reading (Scripture, Observe, Apply, Pray):

  • Each day offers a Scripture reading.
  • Then a place to Observe what you’ve read, what’s happening, what key statements are made. 
  • Follow up as you Apply what you’ve just read:
    • How is God speaking to you through what you’ve read? 
    • Where is Jesus' story this week speaking into your life story this day? 
    • You might sense a sin to confess, an action to take, a word of thanksgiving or a special need to pray for someone.
  • Take time to Pray to what you have sense God saying to you in this time in His word. In addition, I suggest 2 sentence prayers to end your time with God. Lord, thank you for … ___________ ... Lord, I ask … ___________ … Then close, “In Jesus name. Amen.”
