Practical Pointers

How has this study changed the way you think about God, Heaven and angels?

Do you feel that "God is on your side" and sending angels to help you?

Did you know that we can ask God to send angels to help us in times of need?

(Matthew 26:53) Point - praying to angels is wrong, praying for God to send them to minister to you (which is their function) is O.K.

Discuss what you have learned tonight, share a point each that has impressed you the break into groups for prayer.
