Prayer Guide: Nov 24, 2019 – Matthew 12:38-50

Perhaps recognizing greatness isn’t as easy as we might initially think. For the duration of Jesus’ public ministry, the vast majority of the people that Jesus interacted with missed the fact that He was the Messiah of God. While some people were indifferent to Jesus, the religious leaders of Israel actually hated Him. They accused Jesus of blasphemy and conspired to destroy Him. That said, some did recognize Jesus’ greatness. In Matthew 12:38-50, we see how recognizing Jesus’ true identity influences our lives. Please use this guide to join your church family in prayer.
