A Praying Faith

Selected highlights from this sermon.

God often answers prayer in ways we wouldn’t expect. In Genesis 18, God told Abraham that he was about to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. And what follows is an amazing story of intercession and how God chose to answer Abraham’s request. Though Abraham’s exact request wasn’t answered positively, what he probably wanted—the safety of Lot and his family—was granted by God.

But there is one very important fact that must not be overlooked: the closer our friendship with God, the more freely He shows us His intentions. We must develop that friendship in such a way that we are so satisfied with God that even if He doesn’t give us what we think He should, we don’t give up on prayer or on Him.
