What observable evidence do you have that God has heard your prayers?
Read Acts 4:23-31.
How did these believers view God? Jesus? themselves?
How did the psalm quoted in the prayer relate to their recent circumstances?
What did the believers ask God to do in the midst of their current situation?
How did the believers’ prayer differ from the way people today often pray when in the midst of difficult life situations?
How does this passage give you boldness in a situation you find yourself in right now?
If you were to pray about a difficult circumstance in your life as the believers did in this passage, how would you pray?
