  1. Prayer “Prayer should have first priority in the Christian’s life, because a full reception of God’s bountiful blessings and a complete life in Christ depends on making prayer a vital part of life.” Homer Hailey

  2. Whose Prayer Does God Hear? Prayers God Does Not Hear • Those Living in Sin (Isa. 55:6, 7; 58:6-9; 59: 1, 2; Ezek. 33:11; Jer. 7:16; 11:14; 14:7-9) • One Who Hides Iniquity in His Heart (Ps. 66:13, 14, 18; Prov. 28:9; Jo. 9:31) • The Prayer of the Self-Righteous (Lk. 18:1-14) • Those Who Refuse to Forgive Others (Mk. 11:25; Mt. 6:15; 18:34, 35; Lk. 17:3, 4; Eph. 4:32) • Prayer Without Faith (James 1:5-6; Heb. 11:6) • Prayers Seeking the Wrong Things (James 4:3; Rom. 8:5-8) • When One Has Marital Troubles (1 Pet. 3:7)

  3. Whose Prayer Does God Hear? Prayers God Does Hear • Prayers of God’s Children(Matt. 6:9; Acts 17:26-28; Jn. 3:3-5; 1 Pet. 1:17, 22, 23) • Prayers of Them That Worship God and Do His Will (John 9:24-31) • Prayers of Them That Lift Up Holy Hands (1 Tim. 2:8; James 4:8) • Prayers of Them That Are Righteous (James 5:16; 1 Pet. 3:12) EXCEPTIONS: Simon the Sorcerer (Acts 8:9-14) & Cornelius (Acts 10)

  4. When God Says “NO” or “WAIT” • MOSES (Psalm 106:32, 33; Num. 20:10-12; Deut. 3:23-27) • PAUL (2 Corinthians 12:1-9) NO REMEMBER: God saying “no” to our prayers does not man rejection; it may mean that He has something better for us. Because of faith we should be willing to accept God’s answer whatever it may be.

  5. When God Says “NO” or “WAIT” • Job (Job 19:7; 30:20; 42:1-6) • The Canaanitish Woman (Matt. 15:21-28; Mk. 7:24-30) • Jairus’ Daughter (Mk. 5:22, 23, 41, 42) • Mary, Martha & Lazarus (John 11) • Jesus on the Cross (Lk. 23:34) • Souls beneath the Altar (Rev. 6:9, 10) WAIT When the answer to prayer is delayed, there is likewise a reason: it is for our or another’s good or to serve a larger purpose in His plan.

  6. Providence ETYMOLOGY • Comes from the Latin providentia • Closely related to the word “provide” which come from the latinprovidere • Pro = before • Videre = to see • To see before • The word “provide” therefore exresses forethought, which rests upon foresight, conveying the idea of providential care. • The word “providence” occurs only once in our English New Testaments, and applies to a man, not to God (Acts 24:2). Providence presupposes, the divine creation of the universe and God’s government in and over that which He created. God has created man with free will and he will not alter that in any way.

  7. Providence JOB 38 • Creation (vs. 4-7) • Control & Government of the Sea (vs. 8-14) • The Bringing Forth of the Dawn (vs. 12-15) • Springs of the Sea (vs. 16-18) • The Dwelling of Light (vs. 19-21) • Snow & Hail (vs. 22-24) • Rain, Lightning & Thunder (vs. 25-30) • The Heavenly Bodies (vs. 31-33) • The Clouds & Rain (vs. 34-38) Joseph & His Brothers (Gen. 45:1-5)
