Unanswered prayer is such a difficult topic, and is covered well in this session. It is worth a look at the video for week 5 for any that have struggled with this issue. The article on How to Lament is also very good.

The key messages from Pete Greig were:

  • The Bible is honest about unanswered prayer – we are part of a faith that is all about wrestling. 
  • God’s world, God’s war and God’s will are all reasons that prayer may not be answered how we would choose. 
  • God’s silence is not the same as his absence.

There are other useful resources for this week, if you would like to explore prayer further.
