Questions from Last week’s lesson –Week 2– August 28,2016

Questions Week 2
I believe prayer works, but……when it states God’s will will be what we end up with, what is the need for prayer?
Jesus, Himself felt the need to pray as a “son of man.”  The Father instructed prayer from earliest Biblical recordings..  Yes, God is sovereign but He hears the cries of His children and is moved with compassion.  He instructed us to pray without ceasing.  Prayer doesn’t change God but it sure changes us.  The Holy Spirit shines His light and as we dig into God’s Word and pray the Holy Spirit inspired Word, we are praying according to God’s will.  

Psalm 103
Proverbs 16:1-4
Philippians 1:6, 4:6
Ephesians 3:14-20
I Thessalonians 5:16-18
Mark 9:29, 11:24-26
Acts 13:3
Matthew 5:44, 14:23, 18:4, 26:41
Luke 22:39-46
I Corinthians 7:5
Colossians 4:2
James 5:16-20
I Timothy 2:1
Exodus 32:14
John 17
II Chronicles 7:14
Hebrews 4:15-16

Let God’s Word speak to you.  Look up ANY scripture that the Holy Spirit brings to your remembrance.  Scripture explains Scripture.

If God answers every question with a yes………….why did God tell Paul, “My grace is sufficient for you?”
I think the answer lies in James 4:3.    I do not see in Scripture where God answers every question with a yes.   Christ however, never denied an intercessory request (plea for another).
When we pray for others our motives are less selfish.

II Timothy 2:15 I Corinthians 13:12 II Corinthians 6:1
II Peter 1:10 II Samuel 12:15-23 James 5:17-18

About Yvonne Jones

I am at heart, a LIFEguard: "big" sister, mama, grandmother, aunt, friend, swimming coach, lifeguard trainer, and registered nurse. I am in the business of alleviating fear through education and lots of hand holding. As a swimming instructor, I have taught people of all ages to overcome fear of the water and I marvel as fear gives way to fearlessness, as panic turns to pure joy, as tears dissolve into giggles of glee, and pennies retrieved from the bottom of the abyss become trophies. As a nurse, I have been privileged to walk up to Heaven's gate as patients and family are welcomed home, witnessed the miracle of birth, helped mend broken hearts, and cared for the elderly as they wait.Scriptures number one admonition is "fear not." Question is HOW??? The Word becomes our swimming instructor and can help us learn to "tread water til Jesus comes." Something my students often thought I was going to make them do!So welcome to my pool! Jump in the cool water. Let it refresh your soul and feel the unseen hands of the Master Lifeguard lift you up and out of the deep water. Who knows, you just might even walk on water!
