As Christ-followers, our ongoing task is to participate with God in shaping our work communities to reflect Kingdom ways. Meet again with your prayer partner or team to share each other’s prayer walk experience. What did you hear from God? What did you observe? What has He placed in your heart to consider and to follow through? Support and encourage each other in finding ways to share the Gospel in your workplace and making an impact on people’s lives for the glory of God.
