January Sermon Series - Prayer
January 6/7 - What is Prayer? Speaking to God. Because of Jesus, we can speak directly to him, no need for intercessors or mediators.
January 13/14 - What is P.R.A.Y. - Pray, Repent, Ask, Yield.
January 20/21 - Prayer can be intimidating to lots fo people, because they think it has to have certain words, or be big and elaborate. Last week we looked at a simple structure for prayer. Prayer can be simple and direct. Luke 18:13 –“God be merciful to me, a sinner.” Judges 16:28 “O Lord God, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once O God…” Prayers can be simple and short, but God still calls us to talk with him. Practice praying out loud.
January 27/28 - Why don’t we get what we want in prayer? James 4:3- we ask and do not receive, because we ask with the wrong motives. We ask according to our own desires, not those of God. Instead, we ought to pray seeking God’s will.
