Seeking the Face of God is the third study of four in A Life Devoted Series by Ancient Promise Ministries. It calls believers in Jesus Christ to come together across denominational and cultural lines to examine God’s Word and allow it to shape anew our understanding of prayer in six lessons:
1. Created for Relationship
2. Called and Humble
3. Dialoguing with the Father
4. Seeking His Face
5. Turn from Your Ways
6. He Will Hear
This study brings to light an understanding of the soul condition God responds to as we seek His face in prayer. Because our views and experiences with prayer are often determined by our religious culture, family practice, denomination, or by our own beliefs about God prayer can come to mean different things to different people. To some it is a ritual that they participate in during worship services or before meals. To some it is a time to recite a list of needs before they start their day. To others, it is an experience of desperately begging God to meet their needs. For the mature in faith, however, prayer is a time to experience a close intimacy with their Heavenly Father.
This study is based on II Chronicles 7:14-16
“if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. Now my eyes will be open and my ears attentive to the prayer that is made in this place. For now I have chosen and consecrated this house that my name may be there forever. My eyes and my heart will be there for all time.”
