May we strive to pray as Jesus does. Romans 8:34 (ESV)
John 11:41-44 (NKJV)
Prayer equals dependence on God. No prayer equals dependence on you.
The Sermon on the Mount gives practical instructions for living a life of PRAYER.
True Prayer is primarily WORSHIP. It is Godward. It is all about His Glory.
PRAYER is opening my soul to God and saying here’s my heart.
We learn to pray by PRAYING.
Don’t focus so much on “the prayer” but getting to KNOW your Dad. --Mark Driscoll
Pattern for Prayer (from Andy Stanley- Red Letter)
- DECLARE God’s Greatness
- SURRENDER your will to His will
- ACKNOWLEDGE your needs (Provision, Pardon, Protection)
The prayer that pleases God is always PERSONAL.
