Confidence in Prayer

  • Internet access

Wherever we are, in the Sunday school classroom or at home with the family, God hears and honors our prayers. He offers us His ear as we pour out our hearts to Him. In response to our prayers, He blesses us by changing our lives even if we do not see the exact answers we expected. Today, we may not be in the place we expected to be on a Sunday morning, but be assured that this did not come as a surprise to God. He is with us now, waiting to hear and answer our prayers. As a class or as a family, let’s focus on coming before God boldly, knowing He is listening. As you work through this lesson, pray expecting answers in the form of great things that will bring God glory.

  • Do you like surprises? Why or why not? (Accept all reasonable responses.)

Some of us may like surprises because we love the potential for something good to happen. Others of us may dislike surprises because we don’t like not knowing what will happen. Let’s watch a video about someone who wants to surprise others for good—and encounters a few surprises of his own along the way.

  • Have you ever been in a situation that ended unexpectedly in a good surprise? Tell us about it. (Answers will vary; students may mention surprise visits or trips or gifts. Accept all reasonable answers.)

Today we’re going to talk about a time when Peter and his friends had an amazing experience with prayer—they were totally surprised at the big, unexpected answer God had for them during a very troubling time. Let’s see what happened.
