Tenacity is defined as “persistent determination”. It is considered a good character trait since a tenacious character will achieve a goal they set despite any difficulties encountered while achieving that goal.
Share a situation in your life where you’ve demonstrated tenacity. How did prayer play a role in your persistence?
“My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:14–19 (MSG)
