New Nooma Video “OPEN”

page0_blog_entry78_1.jpg

For the next 48 hours the new Nooma video, “OPEN” will be available to watch online.  Check it out here.

As we are in the beginning of our 40 Day Fast this video serves as a great reminder as to what prayer is.

Many of us have experienced situations where we’ve prayed and it felt like God wasn’t listening. And yet other times we’ve prayed or known someone that prayed and the situation changed. Does God answer prayer? Sometimes, but not all the time? Or does God always answer prayer and it’s just that sometimes God says no? Some of us are angry with God for not answering the prayers we’ve prayed for years. Why did he answer their prayer but not ours? What if there’s more to prayer than just God listening and answering? Maybe if we understood how Jesus prayed, our concepts and expectations of prayer would change.

    One thing that I know is; God answers our prayer/s
    He answers (1) YES, (2) NO, (3) Not now and He doesn’t have to tell us which way He is going to answer or when. Oh, that’s where faith comes into the picture!
    Isn’t it an exciting life we can have?
    Thank you, Pastor Kevin, for leading us into the 40 days of fasting. I have had time to complete reading two books (so far) and have read a lot more scripture and have spent countless hours of prayer for myself, family, friends, church, world concerns, missionaries, polictics and politicians. Can you guess? It’s because I gave up evening TV. I recommend it.
