  1. Share a time in your walk with God when you prayed hard for something, or someone, and felt that God was silent… How did you deal with that experience? How did you move forward with God afterward?

  2. What stands out to you in the pattern of David we read in the scripture texts that would help you respond (and go forward with God) despite when things didn’t go the way that you prayed?

  3. How should we respond to those in our Oikos when they question God’s goodness as they witness tragedy and unanswered prayer?

Texts:  2 Kings 19:14-19; 2 Chronicles 6:14-42; 2 Kings 19:32-34

Prayer defined:  Conversation between God and man.

  1. Briefly discuss how the Old Testament Temple and the New Testament Church are similar? How they are different in scope and purpose? (1 Chronicles 17, 18, 22; 2 Chronicles 2-4)

  2. Some in our Oikos see the church building as a barrier, and they will not come to a building. What positive strategies can we use to help them overcome this?

  3. How does my prayer life include LEFC? Specifically, for what promises of God should I be praying? (2 Kings 19:32-34; Matthew 9:35-38)

  4. How can Life Groups be a part of our church’s commitment to be a house of prayer?

  5. Why are commissioning and dedication vital in fulfilling God’s purposes? (2 Chronicles 6:41-42) How could/should this concept be applied outside of the church? 

  6. As you think about the Harvest, for whom in your Oikos are you praying daily for the sake of the gospel? Pre-Christians? Prodigals? Purposefuls? Potentials?
