Peter's (Not so) Great Escape (9 of 21)
Series: The Jesus Chronicles - Part 2
WHAT A WEEK!
The church suffers a loss.
The church uses its power.
The church shows its faith?
The church out lives us all.
FOUR THINGS TO REMEMBER IN A CRISIS
1. Prayer isn't just something we do; it's someone we're with.
Acts 12:5-12, Matthew 7:7-12, John 15:1-8, Romans 10:14-16, James 5:13-18
2. The opposite of faith is inaction; not doubt.
Acts 12:9, 11, 15-16, Mark 9:14-29, Matthew 8:23-27
3. It's not the amount; it's the object of our faith that matters.
Acts 12:5, James 2:17-20, Matthew 17:14-21
4. We ask for what we want, but God decides what we get.
Acts 12:1-4, 24-25, James 1:16-17
TAKING IT HOME
1. Is there a specific way you deal with crises or is there a lesson you've learned about prayer you'd like to further develop as a result of this week's teaching and study?
2. Is there a certain situation or person you want to keep praying for or would like to ask prayer for?
