The Keys to Unlock Life Changing Prayer | The Book Of Luke Week 5 - Live Service

The short prayer at dinner every night is great, don’t get me wrong, but if that’s all we do we’re missing something. Jesus tells us to pray persistently and specifically and when we do, things change.

Process, journal or discuss the themes of this article - here's a few questions to get the ball rolling...

Welcome to the Weekend-Follow Up This is the group part of the Bible Challenge, so your questions are based on specific Bible passages from the weekend message. Each week, your group will discover what God might be saying to you, and how you can respond through a group discussion.

  1. What’s your favorite karaoke song? If you sing it for the group, they have to buy you coffee.

  2. What stood out to you most from the message?

  3. The author of this Psalm was having a really hard time — which we can all relate to. What is your typical attitude about hard times in your life? Do you tend to blame yourself, God or others for your circumstances?

  4. When you’re in a hard time, how do you cope? Do you try to overcompensate or avoid the situation? Why do you think you lean one way or another?

  5. Many characters in the Bible “wrestled” with God in some way. Where are you wrestling with God? Maybe it’s a hard time you’re in right now and you don’t understand why, or maybe something you see around you that you want answers for.

  6. What’s one lesson from this Psalm that you can put into action this week? Do you need to lament, or just be really real before God with your emotions? Or is it something else?

  7. Let’s end with prayer! You can say something like, “Jesus, thank you for always listening to us, even when we’re caught up in our feelings. You are a loving and compassionate God who feels all these same feelings. Give me the courage to keep being honest with myself and with you. Amen.”
