Reflections from Week 2 of Beautifully Surrendered
A Love God Greatly Bible Study about God’s Heart for His Daughters
Through Elizabeth, the Canaanite Woman, Rabhab, Ruth, and the Bleeding Woman we have seen how God's heart is moved by our faith. We have witnessed His blessings of miraculous pregnancies, healing of a demon possessed daughter, salvation of a prostitute who by faith protected God's people, the remarkable devotion of a daughter-in-law, and the simple yet healing act of touching the hem of a garment. Each incident fueled by the faith of women - faith not in themselves or others but in God. References: Luke 1:5-25,39-45; Matthew 15:21-28; Joshua 2, Hebrews 11:31, James 2:14-26; Ruth 1:1-18; and Mark 5:25-34 and 8:40-48

WEEK 3 PREVIEW: WOMEN OF prayer
Now that we have laid the foundation of God’s love and concern for us as women and witnessed the effect of FAITH in the lives of Elizabeth, the Canaanite woman, Rahab – the prostitute, Ruth, and the Bleeding Woman, we will press forward to see how God honors the prayers of women. We will be looking at Hannah, Rachel and several others, whose lives were changed because they were women of prayer.
Our focus/memory verse is found in John 15:7 and is a wonderful promise from Christ that reminds us of the power of prayer when we are faithfully abiding in Him and praying according to His will. Unlike most weeks, this verse is not incorporated into the study so we will have to work extra hard to keep it fresh in our minds throughout the week. Don’t be surprised if you see it on the end of the daily posts. You’d be amazed at how seeing and/or reading something daily for five days helps us retain the message or truth posted.
Week Three Challenge
Our CHALLENGE comes from the focus verse again this week: Who in your life is a mighty prayer warrior? This week, take the time to encourage her and let her know how her prayers have impacted you.
