The Unanswered Prayer of Jesus (And How We Keep It That Way)
Topic: Unanswered Prayer Passage: John 17:20–17:26
Question: How many March Madness brackets were filled out this year? (Try to guess within 10 million.)
Answer: 70 million!
* According to the USA Today, over 70 million brackets were filled out this month, over $10 billion of bets placed, and over $2 billion in lost productivity by employers! And for the student athletes themselves, 63 teams will see their seasons end in defeat. Nail-biters, blow-outs, errors and upsets will mean more than a few broken hearts.
There are lots of broken hearts outside the world of sports as well. Sometimes, it’s hard to understand when we cry out to God and He doesn’t seem to answer. If you’ve felt that disappointment, you’re not alone. Most of us know how you feel. And Someone else does too.
This morning, we will explore that in a sermon Steve calls “The Unanswered Prayer of Jesus” (And How We Keep It That Way).
