Question Two –
Have I really prayed about it?

We have amazing access to God through prayer. With this question we look at the depth and sincerity of our request for God to reveal His will. This study is taken from Matthew 7:7-8.


Question Three –
Does it help or hurt others? 

Question Three is “Will it help or hurt others” and is taken from 1 Cor. 10:23-23. Even though questions one and two are essential to the process of seeking God’s will, we must think of others in the process.
