Memory Verse

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.”

Audio Icon   Proverbs 3:5



In this episode, Liz learns that God won’t give him whatever he wants just because he wants it or prays about it.

Sometimes, it’s easy to know what we should pray for because the Bible tells us. For example, if you have a friend who hasn’t trusted Jesus Christ, you should pray for him because the Bible tells us that God wants everyone to be saved (2 Peter 3:9).

But other times we can’t know for sure what God wants. In fact, the Bible says we don’t know what we should pray for (Romans 8:26). That’s where trusting God comes in. We should talk to him about the situation and read his word, the Bible, and then we should wait to see how he works to accomplish his will in our lives.

Want to dig deeper and learn about trusting God and prayer? Check out Psalm 17:6; Romans 12:12; Philippians 4:6.


Ask a parent or other trusted adult to tell you about a time when they prayed for something and didn’t get what they wanted. Did they realize what God’s will was for them in the situation? How did it help them understand more about trusting God instead of trusting themselves?
