1. Read the headings in Mark 11:20-33.

  2. Highlight verses 22-25 of chapter 11.

  3. Read Mark 11:20-33.

  4. Consider the following questions.

Why don't we seem to be able to throw any mountains into the sea?  (11:23)

How great is it to be able to move mountains?  Be sure to read 1 Corinthians 13:2 to discover something greater.

Given the conditions for 'successful' prayer in 11:24, do we have any hope that our prayers will ever be answered?

How can you know for what to pray?  Mark 14:36 and Romans 8:26-28 provide further guidance and encouragement for us.

Say the Lord's Prayer to yourself.  Where in the prayer do we do exactly as Jesus says we should in 11:25?

In 11:27-33, what dilemma did the question of the chief priests, scribes, and elders pose for Jesus?

How did the Jewish leaders' question backfire on them?

Are you more likely to trust or distrust authorities? Why?
