1. Have you ever had a moment where you tangibly observed the spiritual realm?  If so, explain.
2. How would you separate that which is purely physical verses that which clearly is affected by the spiritual realm?  
3. How would you explain the difference between knowing about Jesus verses knowing Jesus?
4. Do you think we are daily aware of the “rulers in dark places” and the power they have in our culture?  How can we live more in the greater power of Jesus fully aware of the conflict we regularly face?
5. Why do unbelievers have a reaction to Jesus’ name more than any other name, both in profanity, rejection, anger, or in discomfort?
6. How can we as believers invoke the power of Jesus name in prayer, life situations, or in building bridges with our oikos?

Texts:  2 Samuel 12:13-23; Psalm 77

  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?
