This week Bro. Leo continues our study of faith with a look at part 3 of the faith that expects God to answer prayer.
Listen to this weeks message and gain the Scriptural discernment needed to answer the following questions:
Is my prayer just a “religious ritual” or am I actually communicating with God?
Are my prayers perfectly aligned with God’s will or are they requests of my own will?
Is the ultimate goal of my prayers to glorify God or is my goal selfish gain?
Do I pray with absolute confidence that God will answer my prayer?
Why doesn’t God answer all my prayers?
Do I pray often enough?
