01. The Parable of the Persistent Widow
Tim Fulkerson | 1.8.23
Have you ever had to wait for God to answer a specific prayer? Jesus tells us some important lessons in these types of situations. In the parable of the persistent widow, Jesus reminds us to not lose heart in our asking. If we pray according to God’s will, we must be confident He has heard us. God is not like an unrighteous judge, but He always answers us in the right way at the right time. Therefore, let us not lose hope!
02. The Parable of the Pharisee & the Tax Collector
Tim Fulkerson | 1.15.23
Pride can effectively destroy our relationship with God and others, and it can also hinder our prayers. Jesus illustrates to us in the parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector that God condemns self-righteousness and commends humility. The humble thief was made right with God, not the Bible expert. May each of us learn how to approach God with humble and grateful hearts.
03. The Parable of the Friend at Midnight
Tim Fulkerson | 1.22.23
All of us have needs in our lives that we desire God to meet. As we look to the parable of the “friend at midnight,” we will learn some important lessons on what it means to prevail in our prayers. As Christians, God is our greatest Friend and Father, therefore He will give to those of us who ask, seek, and knock accordingly. He will not only answer rightly, but also pour out His Holy Spirit in our lives!
