Praying for those you disciple (Monday)....

I have been preparing for discipleship and ran across this in the Word of Life Where Do I Go From Here - An Interactive Discipleship Course. It's entitled "A Critical Aspect of Discipleship - How to cover your discipleship in prayer."

Since it is broken down into days, I thought I would share each day in a different posting....
Psalm 119:71 "It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes."
Oftentimes we have a desire to spare another from the consequences of their sin but God's purpose is for consequences to teach the sinner the folly of his/her way. When the one you are discipling gets caught, help him/her to acknowledge the sin, to understand a loving God disciplines His children, to seek His forgiveness and to move forward in his/her Christian walk. Remind your disciple that, "whom God loves He chastens" and we should not view that negatively. Life is all about correction. We need to understand that correction polishes us and turn our thinking towards the BENEFITS of correction.
