Do we see God as a genie rather than who he really is? When we listen to our prayers, what is it that we hear? Do we hear ourselves usually saying, “I need this”, “I deserve that”, or “I want this”? Do we have an “ask and you will receive” mentality? Have our prayers become too self-focused?

Prayer is not about us but about the person we are praying to. Prayer is worship. John McArthur said "Prayer is first and foremost an act of worship." Think about it. Ponder on it. Let it change the way you pray. Lose yourself. Worship God in every aspect of your life.

Is Prayer Worship

  1. 1. STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL PRAYER PART 2
  2. 2. PRAYER IS NOT PRAISE,  ADORATION, MEDITATION,  HUMILIATION NOR CONFESSION,  BUT ASKING...PRAISE IS NOT  PRAYER, AND PRAYER IS NOT  PRAISE. PRAYER IS  ASKING...ADORATION IS NOT  PRAYER, AND PRAYER IS NOT  ADORATION. PRAYER IS ALWAYS  ASKING. IT IS NOT ANYTHING  ELSE BUT ASKING.” JOHN R. RICE, ASKING AND  RECEIVING
  3. 3. MATTHEW 6:9‐13 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. 11 ‘Give us this day our daily bread. 12 ‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. 13 ‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For  Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.’
  4. 4. IT THIS ABOUT GOD Prayer is about the Person we are praying to
  5. 5. ASK AND WORSHIP A prayer of supplication, with the proper perspective, will lead to  worship
  6. 6. PHILIPPIANS 4:6 6 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and  supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made  known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses  all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in  Christ Jesus.
  7. 7. MATTHEW 7:7‐11 7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will  find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who  asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who  knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among  you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a  stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake,  will he? 11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts  to your children, how much more will your Father who is in  heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!
  8. 8. MATTHEW 17:20 20 And He *said to them, “Because of the littleness of your  faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a  mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here  to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to  you.
  9. 9. JOHN 14:13 “Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the  Father may be glorified in the Son.”
  10. 10. “Prayer is first and foremost an  act of worship” John MacArthur
