Prayer - Week 1

Great Hope: Passion-comes from confidence (I believe this will make a difference)

Scriptures & Notes

James 5:13-18

Matthew 6:7-10
“And when you are praying, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they suppose that they will be heard for their many words. 8 So do not be like them; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him. 9 “Pray, then, in this way:
‘Our Father who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 ‘Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven

Luke 18:1-8
Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart, 2 saying, “In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did not respect man. 3 There was a widow (weak, defenseless) in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, ‘Give me legal protection from my opponent.’ 4 For a while he was unwilling; but afterward he said to himself, ‘Even though I do not fear God nor respect man, 5 yet because this widow bothers me, I will give her legal protection, otherwise by continually coming (coming forever) she will wear me out.’” 6 And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge *said; 7 now, will not God (a righteous and interested judge) bring about justice for His elect (description of honor, contrast to an alone widow) who cry to Him day and night, and will He delay long over them? (Like the unjust judge) 8 I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” (Faith that would still be praying and believing)

Hebrews 11:6
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

2 Corinthians 5:21
He (God) made Him (Jesus) who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him

Do you still believe prayer will make a difference? If not, Why? Can you ask God to help you believe/hope again?

The Spirit Helps us pray

Remember the Spirit came to Help…one of the greatest ways He helps is in our prayer life.

You are not weak because of problems. Your only weakness is lack of knowing what to pray. Once you begin to pray you have the advantage over the problem.

Intercession is standing in the Gap for someone else

There is a link between our prayers and the quality of the society we live in because;
there is a link between our prayers and the number of people who will come to Christ and be formed in His image, and therefore improves the society we live in.

Intercession: Action of intervening on behalf of another

Intercession is the cry of our hearts for God to spare and not destroy, for God to save; for God to restore and rebuild…it is truly a ministry of grace.

Your perspective of God affects how you approach Him in prayer.

God decided to make you His child. He wanted to be your Father with all that includes. He is not surprised by your needs, failures, immaturities and He is committed to being great Father to you.”
