This message emphasizes Exodus 1:12 to reveal God allowing us to prosper even under oppression. How has the
pandemic shifted your definition of prosperity?
3
In this sermon, Pastor Wesley reminded us that this pandemic does not limit our possibilities. What could God
be asking you to invest in right now? Think of yourself before the pandemic and imagine yourself after the
pandemic subsides. What would you like to be different on the other side?

Pastor Wesley remarked that we often treat prayer like an unproven drug. Often before a drug can hit the market,
they hold a series of clinical trials to make sure it works. What has been your experience with prayer, and how
confident are you in prayer in this moment of your life? What have trials proven to you about the power of
prayer?
SPIRIT WORK
1
Pastor Wesley mentioned that “exile has a way of revealing deficiencies in our prayer life.” Take some time to
develop a prayer schedule for this coming week. Pay special attention to what you have to move out of the way
to make time for prayer. Can you challenge yourself to maintain this time of prayer once the pandemic is over?
2
Pastor Wesley’s second point was that the children of Israel were reminded to “Be Prayerful over the Peace and
Prosperity of the Land.” Write out a prayer for this nation.
Regardless of how you feel about being here and the many issues of this nation, while you are breathing and in
gratitude for that breath, pray for this country like never before. When you don’t feel like praying, return to your
written prayer as a starting point and continue to pray for the nation.
3
‘An expected end.’ How do you allow yourself to rest in the knowledge that you are strategically placed by the
Father for such a time as this? In your quiet time, seek out the ways to bloom where you’re planted.

All over the country, people are being forced to be creative by unemployment, school closures, and other
elements of this predicament. Look at the elements of this predicament whether it’s extra time at home or
money in the bank as opportunities. Take one element of your predicament that prior to this sermon seemed
like an inconvenience, and think of how you can turn that predicament into a new possibility.
5
As Pastor Wesley encouraged us to be protective of the prophetic sources we accept, he reminded us that when
we are in a crisis “we don’t need news, we need word” to get us through. In our busy schedules, we can find
ourselves having a word deficiency. Pick a daily word or start a daily devotional to guide and strengthen you
this week.

This week reminded us of the importance of selective listening. What negative voices have too much access to
your ears? What positive voices can you utilize to replace them?
