Study 24 From the Book of Mark is: Mark 11:20-33
- Verses 20-25. What does Jesus say here are the essential conditions of effective prayer? What more does prayer involve apart from just asking for pleasant things we desire? Cf. Mk. 14:35, 36
- Why did Jesus refuse to answer the question put to Him by the Jewish leaders? What was the point of His question to them? Was He trying to be evasive? What was the root of the trouble, and how is this a warning to us? Cf. Heb. 3:12
Note. Verse 25. ‘Unless we forgive our fellow men freely, it shows that we have no consciousness of the grace that we ourselves have received (Mt. 18:32, 33) and thus that we are expecting to the heard on our own merits.
