Just Ask (Matthew 7:7-11)

Sermon length: Approximately 24 minutes

Does God want to answer our prayers by giving us what we ask for? The answer the biblical writers give is a resounding yes. Then are the prosperity gospelers right? What about the “name it, claim it” crowd? And, if God does want to answer our prayers, why do so many go unanswered?

Matthew 7 opens up a different way for us to think about prayer than the prosperity gospel crowd does, which nevertheless takes seriously Jesus’s extravagant promises. Prayer is more important than most of us have ever realized. It can be an adventure with God. Let’s enter the adventure!
