never giving up
Get comfy and everyone takes it in turn to hold their thumbs out and wiggle them up or down to express how they are and how their week has been. Allow everyone to share why. Perhaps share what God has been doing in your life this week. Why not take a moment to pray about what comes up?
What’s the time mister wolf – one person is the wolf. They stand with their back to the group facing the wall. The rest of the group stand as far back from them as possible. Everyone together asks the wolf “what’s the time mister wolf?” and they answer a number between 1 and 10 o’clock. Each person takes the number of steps towards the wolf that is equal to the time. When people are close enough the wolf can answer ‘dinner time’. At that point everyone runs as fast as they can to the other side of the room before the wolf can catch them. Whoever the wolf catches first is on next as the wolf [point: never stop asking]

Play this worship music video and spend some time asking God for something you or someone you know really needs (not just something you want but something that would be really helpful, something you think God would like to do). Listen to what He tells you back.
Write out a prayer this week where you ask God for something important – pray it every morning before you get out of bed and every night before you go to sleep. Share how God answers your prayer, even if it doesn’t work out how you imagined.
