One of God’s Greatest Gifts is Unanswered Prayers

One of God’s Greatest Gifts is Unanswered Prayers

Jeremiah 29:11 – New Living Translation: For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

I was flicking through some music the other day, and came across one of older albums. It’s a live version of Garth Brooks on tour, and the one song that always jumps out at me is the I’ve linked below, and it’s the title for this blog.

Throughout our life, we’ve often faced trials of many kinds, and this frequently leads to prayer. But, sometimes, our prayers are more like we’ve rewritten that well known scripture above.

Faith and Prayer, Volume 1, Part 3 of 3, Faith and Prayer!

Faith and Prayer, Volume 1, Part 3 of 3, Faith and Prayer!

With discussion around Fish and Chips, Sweet and Sour Sauce and Gloves hands, Andy B does his usual and takes ordinary, every day objects and situations, and helps us dig deeper into the basics of how Faith and Prayer work together.

With a very strong reminder, and warning – from the book of James – about why we need both Faith and Prayer, Andy B encourages us to all to get on our knees more, to learn to know Jesus better.

We all have experiences in life which can be super helpful for ourselves, and the people we come into contact with.

One assembly I remember vividly contained this question – would you rather see an older doctor who was covered in blood and muck, but who was very experienced. Or a young doctor, fresh out of college, who was wall presented.

I can’t speak for my peers, but give me the doctor who has been doing it for a while!
Experience counts in so many places. But, as Christians, wisdom that comes from God trumps experience EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Faith and Prayer, Volume 1, Part 2 of 3, What is Prayer?

Faith and Prayer, Volume 1, Part 2 of 3, What is Prayer?

Starting out the real basics of Prayer, Andy B takes a good look at what Prayer is. He also looks at when we should pray, how we should pray.

He also answers the question of what we can pray!

Returning to the most simplest forms of prayer – conversation – Andy B seeks to show us how prayer is a gift from God, that God desires us to use, because God uses our words to change situations around the world.

And, just like Fish and Chips or Sweet and Sour Sauce, Faith and Prayer complement each other perfectly.

Modern Christianity has skewed how we see God and the devil. It has skewed God into some sort of best mate or pal. And we absolutely should see God as always approachable. But we should do so, seeing Him with the respect we’d have for an earthly father, than just a mate.

Psalm 139 is a fairly well known piece of scripture, but it is verse 2 that really strikes Andy B as he considers Calendars, Organisation and Peace.

Psalm 139 v 2 tells us that God knows when we sit down and when we get up. So God definitely has a handle on what we can accomplish in any single day – for Him.
