Guest Speaker: Shannon Kiser. Scripture: John 14:12-14
Paul,Thank you so much for your feedback! I will forward your comment to Shannon Kiser.
Blessings from CPC!
It was a very good sermon. I hope that a written version is published in some form on the web.
I think it would have been useful to emphasize that God always answers prayers… sometimes by meeting our true needs instead of the actual request… giving us something better than what we actually asked for. I found the discussion in the book, Praying: Finding Our Way Through Duty to Delight, JI Packer and Carolyn Nystrom (2009) very helpful. In particular, they write about God “fixing our prayers” on the way up. This to me is an encouragement to pray and not give up.
