EQUIPPING & ENGAGING YOU IN 40 DAYS OF PRAYER.
“When God Says NO”
“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” Jeremiah 33:3.
Over the past 6 sessions, we have looked at ways to connect with God through prayer. As you have watched, discussed and reflected on these lessons, your understanding of prayer should have increased. Maybe, your prayer practice has been affected. However, some may have gone through this study and still asked themselves, “why pray when all my prayers seem to come back no or even unanswered”. Scripture tells us to call on God as He is listening but some can’t help but think He’s never answering.
This week’s lesson builds on words the prophet Jeremiah spoke to God’s chosen people about God wanting to answer us. It touches on the types of answers God does provide and more importantly helps understand what God’s answer may be “no”.
