Overview

QUESTION THAT WILL BE ANSWERED: Why is prayer necessary? To whom should we pray? How should we pray? What should we pray about? Does the Bible say when or where we can pray? Does it really help to pray? Does God always hear our prayers? Does God hear everyone's prayers? What is the importance of continuing to pray? What parable did Jesus give that applies to the need for continual prayer? The greater the need the greater the prayer? Why must prayers be offered from a confident heart and mind? How does the Holy Spirit help us? What must the Christian have to receive Holy Spirit? When Jesus said to ask the Father to "give us this day our daily bread," what would we be implying by that request? What are we supposed to mean when we pray, "Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors"? What did Jesus mean when he said to pray to the Father, "Do not lead us into temptation"? How are we to understand our request in prayer to "deliver us from the evil one"?

Does God listen to every one of our prayers? Do we have an accurate understanding of what the Bible teaches about prayer? We can grow close to the Father to the point that our bond will never be broken. Discover if God hears our prayers, how and when we are to pray, and what we need to do to be heard? What is a relationship? How can make our relationships with our heavenly Father stronger? How does God communicate with us? How does God speak to us when we study the Bible? What should our foremost goal be when we study the Bible? What are some things that we can do to draw closer to God? Have we been struggling in our prayer life? Has it become a challenge even to pray? What can we do? What does the Father expect of us in our prayers? What is the Father truly concerned about? Does God listen to all prayers? What kind of prayers would the Father reject? What kind of people would the Father reject? Does the Father truly grant everything we ask for?

What sort of things should we bring to the Father? Whether the Father hears our prayers is up to us. How does the Holy Spirit Plead for us? Why is it important to listen to God's voice and communicate with Him? How should we feel about the pain and suffering of this life? What confidence can we have? How can we handle the fact that God has allowed and is allowing pain and suffering? When life's anxieties are upon us prater can strength us. Is prayer really necessary? Do our prayers really do any good? Can prayer really solve problems? How will our life be different if we make prayer a regular part of your life? We might wonder, 'If God knows everything, why should we pray?' [Matthew 6:8] What if we pray for relief of a problem and no relief comes? Should we then conclude that we have not received an answer?

God may answer a prayer in subtle ways. God may answer a prayer through our study of His Word. Yes, God's answer to our plea for help may very well come through the Spirit inspired, inerrant, authoritative Bible. Instead of removing the problem, God may give us the strength to cope. God may use spiritual brothers and sisters to help us at just the right time. Who knows, we may be the one being used if we are obeying Bible principles to make ourselves available. We must pay closer attention to the way God answers our prayers. Are we not on God's timetable?
