MY NEXT LEVEL OF GROWTH WITH GOD

DISCOVERYING MY PERSONAL PRAYER POWER WITH GOD

October 16, 2011

Lesson #5

Bible Fact: God has already prescribed in scripture how He will reveal Himself and His help to me.

Bible Text: II Chronicle 7:14

Aim: To lead students to improve their individual spiritual relationship with God through prayer and to experience more answered prayers.

“One day George Mueller began praying for five of his friends. After many months, one of them came to the Lord. Ten years later, two others were converted. It took 25 years before the fourth man was saved. Mueller persevered in prayer until his death for the fifth friend, and throughout those 25 years he never gave up hoping that he would accept Christ! His faith was rewarded, for soon after Mueller’s funeral the last one was saved.”

When Robert Louis Stevenson was a boy he once remarked to his mother, "Momma, you can't be good without praying." "How do you know, Robert?" she asked. "Because I've tried!" he answered. This brings to mind a story about another little fellow -- one who had been sent to his room because he had been bad. A short time later he came out and said to his mother, "I've been thinking about what I did and I said a prayer." "That's fine," she said, "if you ask God to make you good, He will help you." "Oh, I didn't ask Him to help me be good," replied the boy. "I asked Him to help you put up with me." Our Daily Bread

F. Interceding for others with my prayers helps others who are experiencing problems to receive help from God. Read Mark 9:17-29.

1.Who are the people needing help in the passage?

2. Below described the help that each of the persons needed in the passage.

3. Identify how God helped all of the people in the passage with their particular problems.

On persevering prayer: "I look at a stone cutter hammering away at a rock a hundred times without so much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the 101st blow it splits in two. I know it was not the one blow that did it, but all that had gone before."
