Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find, knock and the door will be opened (Matt 7:7).
Robert and Janet Ellsworth note that many people feel uncomfortable with prayers that ask for something, thinking that such prayers are selfish or begging. They quote a well-known author, "I don't want prayer to be just one more way that the narcissist asks for what he wants. It's time to grow out of the image of God as our errand boy."
Such beliefs, however, come from deep-seated feelings of being unworthy and our feelings about worthiness will either support or negate receiving what we ask.
This class will help you with being comfortable asking in prayer for what you need and equip you with techniques for making requests in prayer.
This class will provide you with an understanding of:
why and how we can pray for our own needs
how to pray when we are distraught, angry or upset
when we must be willing to take action to support our request
how to interpret seeming unanswered responses to prayer
Techniques for Making Requests in Prayer

The next date for this class is: Wednesday, July 13, 6:30-8:30
