Questions

Questions from today’s speaker. You can use some of these in Growth Groups or alone:

Read through Matthew 7:7-12

  • How does the way you see God affect your prayer life?  Does it limit what you ask you for yourself or others? 
  • (You may want to reflect on this alone or with a trusted friend)
    Are there unanswered prayers in your life which limit your prayers now?  Bring these to God and ask for healing and freedom from these – even if they can’t be understood humanly speaking.
  • (You may want to reflect on this alone or with a trusted friend)
    How does your experience of human parents affect how you relate to God?  If it is problematic, how could you start working towards being free of this?
  • Given that ‘Ask, seek and knock’ are ongoing commands, how am I doing with coming to God in prayer at present?  Is there anything I want to change about this?
  • If I/we followed these commands of Jesus, what difference would it make to:
    • My life?
    • Our church?
    • Our world?
  • Think of some specific examples for each of the above

What can I pray for?

  • Pray for the situation in Afghanistan – which is perhaps even more critical for Christians now that it has slipped off the headlines. Open Doors have produced a simple pray guide video here: https://youtu.be/bqNQPnfVUUA
  • Pray for our church’s Christmas celebrations – particularly in a year affected by COVID but to a different extent than previously
  • Talk to God as you feel prompted by the questions in the section above.
