Many of us know someone who can sleep through anything . . . a storm, an earthquake, a siren, an alarm. Sometimes you have to go give them a shake to pry them loose from their slumber. Today on A New Beginning, Pastor Greg Laurie points out that it seems the church will sometimes sleep through anything. Oh, we may be aware of the pandemic, the unrest and all the rest, but God wants us to stand up and speak out with God’s antidote for the ills our country is facing.

If you’re praying for something, and you haven’t received an answer, don’t give up! In this Sunday morning episode, Pastor Greg Laurie shares the story of someone whose persistence in faith made the difference. Listen in for some dynamic teaching on “Amazing Faith!” It’s the latest message in our Sunday series, "The Gospel for Busy People." Notes | There is no safer place to put your faith than in God. Faith is belief plus action. Faith does things. We are saved by faith. Faith can make the difference between something happening and not happening. Read: Mark 7:24–30. This woman had an unexpected and amazing faith. As parents, we have a direct influence on our children. It’s easier to build a child than repair an adult. “But He answered her not a word.” —Matthew 15:23. Your prayer may not be answered because a spiritual battle is raging you know nothing about. Your prayer may not be answered because there is unconfessed sin in your life. God cannot forgive the sin you will not confess. Idols in our hearts cause God to refuse to listen to our prayers. An idol is anyone or anything that takes the place of God in our lives. Your prayer may not be answered quite yet because God wants you to keep praying. Never give up in your prayers! Faith is often found in the most unusual places. No matter what, bring your problems to Jesus. When you pray, seek to find the will of God and pray with persistence! Scriptures Referenced: Ephesians 2:8, Matthew 15:28, Mark 7:26, Psalm 66:18, Isaiah 59:1–2, Ezekiel 14:3, Mark 7:28, 29.
