Chapel….

Great sermon this morning from David Hohne on prayer.

God ALWAYS answers our prayers. Sometimes he answer with a no. So how do we know we can still trust him?

Arguably the biggest No he gave was to his son. Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane –

My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me

Whatever our ‘cup’ is, if the answer is no, are we able and willing to finish our prayer as Jesus did – yet not as I will, but as you will?

  1. I’ll “amen” that one. My favourite prayer in BCP and AAPB is, simply, “Lord, teach us to pray.” A five-word plea, and a confession of sorts…

  2. if we’re genuinely praying that God’s will be done and not ours then God’s answer will always be “yes” :-)
