We are about a year from when we were praying that the “two weeks to flatten the curve” would be effective. I remember asking our church to pray that we would be able to meet for regular services again by Easter Sunday, 2020! Well, we were meeting from our separate living rooms via live stream.
And yet, this is just one example of many when God says, “no” to our prayer requests. Remember, God the Father even said no to Jesus when He asked that the cup pass from Him. We can expect this same experience. What do we do then, when God says no? Let’s look at Paul’s example in 2 Corinthians 12 together.
