Transcript

  • 1. God Wants to Hear From You
  • 2. 1. Prayer is a responsibility and a privilege.
  • 3. Matthew 6:5-13 NKJV And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. [6] But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.
  • 4. Matthew 6:5-13 NKJV Continued [7] And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words. [8] Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. [9] In this manner, therefore, pray:
  • 5. Matthew 6:5-13 NKJV Continued Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. [10] Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. [11] Give us this day our daily bread. [12] And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. [13] And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
  • 6. 2. God hears us.
  • 7. Psalm 34:15-18 NIV The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry; [16] the face of the Lord is against those who do evil, to cut off the memory of them from the earth. [17] The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. [18] The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
  • 8. 3. Consistent prayer requires commitment.
  • 9. Colossians 4:2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.
  • 10. 1 Peter 5:8 Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
  • 11. 4. We need prayer now, more than ever!
  • 12. 1 Peter 4:7 The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.
  • 13. Acts 2:42 They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
  • 14. Acts 12:5-11 So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him. [6] The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance. [7] Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. quot;Quick, get up!quot; he said, and the chains fell off Peter's wrists.
  • 15. Acts 12:5-11 Continued [8] Then the angel said to him, quot;Put on your clothes and sandals.quot; And Peter did so. quot;Wrap your cloak around you and follow me,quot; the angel told him. [9] Peter followed him out of the prison, but he had no idea that what the angel was doing was really happening; he thought he was seeing a vision.
  • 16. Acts 12:5-11 Continued [10] They passed the first and second guards and came to the iron gate leading to the city. It opened for them by itself, and they went through it. When they had walked the length of one street, suddenly the angel left him. [11] Then Peter came to himself and said, quot;Now I know without a doubt that the Lord sent his angel and rescued me from Herod's clutches and from everything the Jewish people were anticipating.quot;
  • 17. James 4:8 Come near to God and he will come near to you.
