Week 12 Lord Teach Us To Pray Persistently
Week 13 Lord Teach Us To Pray When Our Prayers Go Unanswered
Week 14 Lord Teach Us To Pray In All Occasions
Week 15 Lord Teach Us To Pray For The Nations

We goofed on recording this week’s sermon (apologies). But here are some notes and some questions to help you and/or your SoulCare Community to apply the preached Word.

  1. How would you describe your prayer life?
  2. What are the hardest things about prayer for you?
  3. How might focusing on God rather than on prayer be the best way to grow your prayer life? (Recall the examples of being focused on a person rather than on the conversation or on the road ahead rather than on the windshield)
  4. In Luke 11:1-4, Jesus begins to teach His disciples how to pray. He begins by inviting them to address God as, “Our Father.” How is the gospel tucked into the opening line of the Lord’s prayer?
  5. If you believed that God was really your Father and you were really His child, how might that affect your prayer life?
