Let Sunday’s message have a continuing effect throughout the week."
Takeaway Truth from Sunday’s message – Blessed are those who can’t pray worth a darn.
What stuck with you from Sunday’s teaching? Why?
A beatitude is a statement declaring who it is that is ‘blessed’. How are people who can’t pray worth a darn blessed in the Kingdom Jesus describes?
Read Genesis 18:23-33. What observations do you make about this ‘prayer’ session? What assumptions does this challenge about God or prayer? What might it affirm?
Read Luke 18:1-8. Again, what does this reveal about God and prayer?
What do you think of the statement, “God wants to be pestered/bothered.” Why do you think God listens to people, bargains with them, or even takes time to converse with them?
What would a church-community look like (what kinds of practices or postures) that was built around blessing those who struggle to pray? Are these things you can see at Vox? Can you think of ways we could move closer to this?
