In the first half of our study we compare asking rightly and wrongly in prayer, praying according to God“s will, and how that ties to trust. We discuss «good person syndrome» and examine the example of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. In the second half, we examine modes of prayer drawing upon the writings of Teresa of Avila.
Tonight's study started with the background of the pictured destruction of Rome and the harlot upon the beast that set the stage for Revelation 19. We briefly discuss the word "Hallelujah" and its evolution into "Alleluia". We spend some time examining the idea of eternal punishment and what the earliest Church believed about it. We conclude with an exploration of the bride making herself ready.
