1. 回顾你没有得到回应的祷告,讨论你是否为了自己的享乐、满足或以自我为中心的欲望而错误地妄求。讨论上帝是否反对我们在生活中享受好的事物和得兴盛,考虑到是我们的上帝给了我们获得财富的能力,以及我们的天父在我们向祂祈求时会给我们(作为神的儿女)美好的事物。
(雅各书 4:1-5; 约翰福音 15:7-8; 申命记 8:18; 马太福音 7:11)


2. 作为一个基督徒,你是否因顺应这世界,犯了属灵层面上的淫乱,渴望在我们百体中战斗的私欲,或者被眼目或肉体的情欲诱惑包括贪恋钱财?通过提到个人主义、家庭纷争、生命中的优先次序、以及有违背上帝的话或价值观的祈求,来讨论是什么会阻碍我们的祷告得到回应。
(雅各书 4:1,4; 彼得前书 3:7; 约翰一书 2:15-16 ; 提摩太前书 6:10)


3. 让我们的祷告能得到回应的关键是什么,以及虽然你生活在这世上但却不应属于这个世界,讨论要常在基督里并让祂的话也常在你里面,应当如何能付诸实践。虽然在生活中有自己的计划是好事,解释为什么寻求上帝的旨意和通过分别为圣来明白这是上帝的旨意很重要,而不是期待和要求上帝来祝福我们的计划。
(约翰福音 15:7; 约翰一书 5:14-15)

CG Discussion Questions:

1. Looking back to your unanswered prayers, discuss if you were asking wrongly for your own pleasure, gratification or self-centered desires. Discuss if God is against us enjoying good things and prosperity in life, taking into consideration that it is our God, who gives us the power to gain wealth and our Father in heaven will give us (the children of God) good things when we ask Him.
(James 4:1-5; John 15:7-8; Deuteronomy 8:18; Matthew 7:11)


2. As a Christian, have you been committing spiritual adultery by flirting with the world, desiring for pleasure that war within us, or being tempted by the lust of the eyes or the flesh including the love of money? Discuss what could be hindering our prayers from being answered, by referring to individualism, strife in the family, priority in life, and asking what are contrary to God’s word and values.
(James 4:1,4; 1 Peter 3:7; 1 John 2:15-16; 1 Timothy 6:10)


3. Discuss what the key to having our answered prayers is, and how you can put in practice to abide in Christ and allow His Word to abide in you, while living in this world but not of this world. While it is good to have our own agenda in life, explain why it is important to seek God’s will to know that it is a God’s idea through consecration rather than expecting and demanding God to bless our plans.
(John 15:7; 1 John 5:14-15)
