In What Are We Fighting For? Author Thomas J. Bickerton offers a way to move beyond all the discord to a hope-filled future by exploring how we can come together around what matters most so that the gospel of Jesus Christ becomes a vibrant part of our lives and witness. Each of the six sessions contain 10-12 minutes of video featuring Tom Bickerton and is perfect for both adult and youth classes.
Session 4 - Filling in the Blank with the Essentials - In this session, we learn that prayer can easily be a setup for failure if we dictate to God exactly what we think we need, because it may not be what we need after all. We are encouraged instead to pray for the feelings we would have if God answered our prayers and leave the specifics up to God—a posture of faith that opens us up to the freshness of the unexpected and the surprise of the unknown. We also review four essentials that are critical in our journey to discover what matters most.
