“Some Random Fishermen” 

Mark 1:14-20                

Some random fishermen encountered Jesus.  He called them to repent, believe, and follow Him, and their lives were forever changed as they did so and became his first disciples. As we encounter Jesus, He calls us to repent, believe, and follow Him so that we might also become his disciples.

“A Woman at a Well” 

John 4:1-26, 39-42

A woman at a well had an encounter with Jesus, and it changed her life and the lives of others in her town, as she and they came to believe in Him as their savior. As we encounter Jesus, He calls us to believe in Him and receive Him as our savior, too.

Does God Really Listen and Answer Prayer? 
Psalm 139:1-4, Jeremiah 33:3, Proverbs 28:9, James 4:3, Mark 11:24, 1 John 5:14

God hears everything, including our prayers. God does answer our prayers.  When people ask faithfully, God frequently grants their prayers, more often than we may realize.  However, God does not always give us what we pray for, and the scripture outlines some good reasons why.
