Better Together with Barb Roose

When it comes to the topic of race and racial healing, many of us have one of two responses: hide away from the uncomfortable conversation or become overzealous and use our words to cut and hurt others. In today's episode, our special guest, Dr. Lucretia Carter Berry, shows us a new approach that is characterized by understanding, growth, and grace.    In today's conversation we talk about accepting God's call to dive into the deep (and at times terrifying) waters, taking the time to learn, and rising up to teach and educate our families as well as others in our lives.   ...

What do we do when God says no to what we've been praying for?

If you've clicked over to this podcast, let me tell you right now: You're supposed to be here right now. I don't even know about your life. But, I know that you need to click play on this episode and hear what my friend, Janet McHenry, has to say. She's the best-selling author of the book, Prayer walk, and the author of the newest book, The Complete Prayers of Jesus.

Today, Janet speaks powerful, divine wisdom into the hard question: What do we do when God says no?

He didn't heal your loved one;

He didn't stop your parent from abandoning you;

He allowed the divorce to happen;

He hasn't rescued your child from drugs;

He's allowed your financial or legal trouble to cost you everything.

You aren't alone if you're confused or angry because God hasn't answered your prayer the way that you'd hoped. There are verses in the Bible about God giving us the desires of our heart and God invites us to ask Him for anything. Yet, how do we reconcile God's command for us to pray and ask Him for anything, but He doesn't give us everything that we want. It's confusing, right?

As she walks us through Jesus' prayers, including the prayer where God says no to Jesus, Janet explains God's ultimate purpose for us in prayer. Her teaching is so, so, good! If you are hurting or angry at God, BUT you want to have a relationship with Him, then listen. If you're angry with God and not quite ready for her message today, that's okay. You can email me at [email protected] and share your story with me. I'd love to pray for you.

In today's episode, Janet and I discuss:

  • The two-sided coin prayer that Jesus prayed - and we can pray this, too!
  • Three actions that Jesus took when God said no to Jesus' prayer - and we must do this, too!
  • Janet shares the story of what happened in her life when God said no and even as the worst case scenario happened, Janet discovered the blessing that happened even when God said no.
