- Determine the area the person needs help in by:
- Asking the person in what area(s) they feel they need help. Fasting & praying one day – asking the Holy Spirit how to mentor this person and show you the area(s) they need your assistance. If He shows you more than one area, ask Him which is to be dealt with first.
- Ask the person if they are willing to submit to you in the area where they need your assistance.
- Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to give you the plan to use that will help the person reach their God-given potential in that area.
- Document the plan and write detailed instructions for the person you are mentoring.

- Pray for the person on a regular basis.
- Follow up with the person to check their progress.

- Establish a relationship with the person
- Continue to pray and listen for direction from the Holy Spirit
- Call the person at least 3 – 4 times a week and pray with them.
- Follow up with the person with regular calls to check their progress.
RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE PERSON BEING MENTORED
- Accept a subordinate learning position.
- Respect the mentor but don’t idolize her.
- Put into effect immediately what you are learning.
- Share your progress with the mentor, your progress is her reward.
- Learn to ask crucial questions that show you have been thinking between sessions – questions that show progress.
- Don’t threaten to give up. Let the mentor know that she is dealing with a determined winner and not wasting her time.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
- Always pray and ask God what you need to say to the person you are mentoring.
- Don’t do all the talking.
- Be a good listener.
- Don’t be too busy to keep in touch weekly or daily with the person you are working with.
- Be open – share your experiences.
Mentoring someone doesn’t mean you are spiritually mature in every area. God has taken you through some circumstances victoriously and you can help someone else go through the same thing.

Answering the Call
What is God calling you to do as a believer?
As believers, we are all called to pray, walk by faith, evangelize, to be ministers of the gospel to have an intimate, relationship, etc. I believe this is the season for us to move forward in the things God has called us to do. For example, God is calling his intercessors to intercede for the body of Christ – that we will take our rightful place, walk in the power, anointing, and the authority God has given us.
