NEW SERIES: PRAYER
HOW DO YOU SEE PRAYER?
- Some see it as asking for something that couldn’t possibly happen anyway.
- Others see it as their personal vending machine: put in the right combination of currency, push the right buttons, and get what you want.
- There are those who see prayer as a religious exercise.
- And there are those who don’t think prayer is effective at all.
According to the Bible, we can be confident that our prayers will be answered. Jesus many times lets us know that it is faith and belief that are key to answered prayer. Look at these verses…
“Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”” (Mark 9:23)
“So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” (Luke 11:9)
“If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” (John 14:14)
“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” (John 15:7)
Our prayers are more than wishes and hopes – but only if we pray with believing, faith-filled hearts. That is the kind of prayer that moves mountains. I’m excited about our series on Prayer. What we will learn, what we will apply and the hundreds of hours that will be going in to both private and corporate prayer.
