I Want to See Jesus Move...

... so I need to believe that He CAN and WILL help me. (Mk 5:23-34)

Small Group Questions (Whole Group):
Read Mark 5:21-43

  1. Can you come to Jesus without humbling yourself? Why or why not? How exactly do you humble yourself?
  2. Why did Jesus tell the woman her faith made her well (lit. saved her, verse 34)? What was the substance of her faith?
  3. How would you define “answered prayer”? What does “an answer to prayer” mean? How do you know when a prayer has been answered?

Breakout Questions:

  1. What is something you have prayed for that “the Lord has seemed late in answering”? (Mk 4:35) Why do you think He hasn’t answered your prayer in the way that you wanted? What is your response going to be?
  2. Pray for the upcoming Franklin Graham Crusade and our church’s involvement in it. If we are to be involved, we need the Lord to raise up a leader who will help get us plugged in. This is a tremendous evangelism opportunity!
