What God's Word says about Prayer:
And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
I am using the "Lord's Prayer" as a guide. (Matthew 6:9-13)
1. Praise God for Who He is! (vs. 9)
Today, I am going to focus on: He is Amazing!
Ephesians 3:20 (New Living Translation)
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.
2. Pray for His Will to be done! (vs.10)
Today, I am going to focus on: His will in our Plans, that they would be His Plans!
3. Pray for Him to meet our needs! (vs. 11)
Today, I am going to focus on:
- My children would be amazed by God!
- John would be find rest!
- My Pastor wife
- Salvation for family
- Missionaries and fellow Christians in Iran who have been arrested.
4. Pray for forgiveness and that I would forgive others. (vs. 12)
As Christ forgave me so I must forgive others!
Colossians 1:13-14 (New Living Translation)
13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.
5. Pray for Help against Temptation! (vs. 13)
Hebrews 2:18 (New Living Translation)
Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.
Don't forget to put your armor on....
Belt of Truth
Breastplate of Righteousness
Feet fitted with the Gospel of Peace
Shield of Faith
Today, I am going to focus on: Thanking Him because
"Prayer is the breath of the new creature."~Richard Baxter
