Do we expect God to answer prayers?
This was a question posed by the Archbishop today as he spoke at the Suva Cathedral to us, and 18-people who gave a commitment to following the Christian faith today.
The powerful sermon left an impression on me that will not just last today, but something I will ponder for the months ahead.
That is just what I got the sense of. I had just been in a place of prayer, filled with God’s spirit – and I was challenged by this experience.
The Cathedral is a beautiful place, and not just in its masterwork of stone and wood, but the people that gathered there. The people worshiped God, and the raising voices of a congregation that believed whole heatedly the words that were leaving their mouths sung with such conviction.
I left feeling uplifted, being among people who loved a living God, and I can only conclude that they believe God answers their prayers. But what about you? Do you have enough faith to believe that God can answer your prayers too?
