Prayer: The Cure For Selfishness (Luke 22:39-46)

September 7, 2015

If you would like a refresher on the sermon, the sermon audio and notes can be found at   http://english.cccto.org/media.php?pageID=21   .

Suggested Sermon-Based Discussion Questions:

1.  How has prayer helped you grow in following Christ, in general?

2.  How has prayer helped you avoid falling into a sinful temptation?  Please share a past situation.

3.  How has prayer helped you avoid falling into a selfish action and motivated you into doing a selfless action?  Please share a past situation.

4.  Have you ever had a time where you failed in prayer because of an intense sorrowful time in your life?  Have you ever had a time where you overcame an intense sorrowful time in your life through consistent prayer?  Please share what happened?  If you failed…what happened?  If you succeeded…what happened?

5.  Have you cultivated a lifestyle of consistent prayer to God?  Or is prayer more of a reactionary event when bad things happen?  The sermon suggested 5 things you can do to help you.  Which of these do you think can help?  Or is there something else not listed you can do?

6.  For you personally, is prayer more like Cinderella or Rosie the Riveter?  In your opinion, for your Fellowship Group, is prayer more like Cinderella or Rosie the Riveter?  What steps can you take so that prayer becomes more like Rosie and less like Cinderella?
