God Answers Prayer!!!
During three separate services I taught a series of lessons “Why Did He Say NO?” trying to help some understand why a prayer they might have prayed went apparently unanswered. This service will be about something totally different Answered Prayer!
26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
