WEEK 2 (Page 35,36,37,38) - STUDY REVIEW
ŸREAD JAMES 5:16b AND THE TOP OF PAGE 35 ; CHOOSE THE STATEMENTS THAT ARE TRUE:
___ All Christians' prayers are powerful and effective.
___ A Christian who has a right relationship with God will have a powerful prayer life.
___ Your heart has to be right with God concerning the person you are praying for (you have to
have the same heart of love for the person that God has) in order to pray powerfully and
effectively for that person; otherwise God will not honor or even listen to your prayers.
___ What matters most is that you are praying, not that your relationship is right with God.
ŸREAD I SAMUEL 12:23; IS IT A SIN (ESPECIALLY FOR A CHURCH LEADER) TO NOT PRAY FOR OTHERS ? ___ YES ___ NO ___ THAT DOESN'T SOUND RIGHT
ŸWHO SHOULD WE BE PRAYING FOR ?:
___ Those who hurt or wrong or persecute you (Matt. 5:44) ___ The "jerks" we know
___ Always keep on praying for the saints (each other) ___ The sick, needy, lonely,...
___ People who are obviously evil and enemies of God ___ Discouraged people
___ Christians who have turned away from the Lord ___ Unsaved family, neighbors,...
ŸWHICH OF THESE DO YOU THINK IS TRUE:
___ One of the reasons that God wants you to pray for those that hurt you or wrong you
("the jerks") is so that He will be able to change them to how you think they should be.
___ God wants you to pray for those that hurt you or wrong you ("the jerks") so that He can
change you and your heart towards other people, even "jerks" -- so you can be forgiving,
compassionate, kind,... and so you can truly love others like He does.
ŸREVIEW PAGE 37 ; WHAT ARE SOME OF THE KEY THINGS YOU NEED TO ASK GOD TO DO SO THAT LOST PEOPLE YOU KNOW CAN COME TO KNOW JESUS AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR ?:
___ Pray that they will be able to see God for who He really is.
___ Pray for God to convict them and show them their sinfulness and their need for Jesus.
___ Pray for them to get a seeking heart (an interest in God and in spiritual matters)
___ Pray for God to draw them to Himself and His great love for them.
___ Pray for them specifically by name.
___ Pray in faith for them, expecting God to do everything He can to touch them & save them (if
you have a right relationship with God and you pray according to God's will, you can know
that He hears your prayer, and you can know that you have what you prayer for).

___ Does God want us to pray for our pastors, leaders,...? ___ YES ___ NO
___ Do we need to pray for God's leading & power for our church ? ___ YES ___ NO
___ Does God want us to pray for our president & nation's leaders ? ___ YES ___ NO
___ According to 2 Chron. 7:14 -- in order for God to "heal our nation", do we American
Christians need to change (humble ourselves, pray, seek, turn) or do the unsaved people ?
