Growth Group – Unanswered Prayer
John Noble reflects on his recent growth group which was based on ‘God on Mute’ by Pete Greig, exploring the topic of unanswered prayer.
John said, ‘It has been a well worthwhile journey, not only leading the group but also learning from the experiences that others gave – either on the video or in the group chat. My prayers haven’t always been answered, which can really feel like a kick in the teeth, however, the course gave me an insight into some of the reasons why. If you haven’t read the book ‘God on Mute’ by Pete Greig I can wholeheartedly recommend it, whether or not you find yourself struggling with unanswered prayer.
Louise, who was part of the growth group added: ‘For me, I came into the growth group with questions and of the thought that some of course might be sad/difficult, but actually I came away from the course feeling really assured that I am not alone in my experiences in life. I found listening to other people’s experiences both in the group and on the video very inspiring, and this changed my perspective on where God is in difficult times – which is actually present, not ever absent, even if it feels that way. Thanks again (John) for leading us through it.’
