The more we discover who the Old Testament character of Jacob was, the more we may wonder why God would ever want to be associated with such a person, let alone have a relationship with him! We’re getting to know “The God of Jacob.”
Caught with no way out, many people have tried to bargain with God. “Lord, if you help me right now, I’ll turn my life around!” But does God ever answer those types of prayers? Let's discuss Jacob’s negotiation with God.
This week and next on Discover the Word, pastor and author Robert Gelinas is joining Elisa and Mart. Robert is Lead Pastor of Colorado Community Church, a multicultural, interdenominational mission in the Mile High City, and author of The Mercy Prayer. Here is a short video from Robert about Discover the Word:
The group will look at the subject of prayer specifically…
Faced with a difficult problem, we analyze all the possible solutions and formulate how to achieve the best result. But God has a habit of working outside our confined expectations! We’re studying Mark chapter 8.
Ever feel like your prayers never make it past the ceiling? Maybe you’re wondering if God is even paying attention when you try to talk with Him. More from our study in Matthew chapter 15.

Many people claim to live by “The Golden Rule.” But according to Haddon Robinson, it’s likely they’re following what he calls “The Silver Rule” instead!
Even though we love our kids, as parents we’re smart enough not to give our children everything they ask for! When it comes to prayer, our heavenly Father has a similar practice. A biblical perspective on prayer.
It can be annoying when kids pester us with the same questions over and over again. But our heavenly Father welcomes such tenacious persistence from His children! An insightful lesson from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.
Jesus said, “Ask and you shall receive.” So why do some prayers seem to go unanswered? Will we receive everything we ask for?
