Plug Into the Power of Prayer

  1. 1. Be Thankful Because God Never Said… • “You haven’t got a prayer, and never had one anyway”. • “You only have three prayers, and no you can’t ask for a hundred more...” • “Ask and you probably won’t receive.” • “Could you repeat that last prayer?”
  2. 2. Get Connected! • In this life we must find out about and get involved with prayer. Eph. 3:20; Mt. 7:7 • Many folks flounder through life without it. – God wants us to be blessed and be connected to Him by prayer. Eph. 1:3; 1 Tim. 2:5 • Let’s learn about the power of plugging into prayer!
  3. 3. Prayer Works Against Tough Problems • Fasting and prayer is powerful. Matthew 17:19-21; Ezra 8:23 – Prayer includes a focused faith (belief). James 1:6; Mark 11:24 – Powerful prayer requires fasting from feasting on foods. • It’s part of turning to God with all your heart… Joel 2:12; Heb.11:6 – Food can be fasted from, but never cease prayer! 1 Thes. 5:17 – If you feel something controlling you (or trying to), fast and pray!
  4. 4. God’s Plan Is For His House To Be… • A house of prayer! Mark 11:17; Luke 19:46 • The Lord’s church is the house of God… 1 Timothy 3:15 • We as members of God’s house must be vigilant pray-ers! Acts 12:5 • Get devoted in prayer Lk.18:1-8 – The P.U.S.H. of prayer: Pray Until Something Happens!
  5. 5. Prayer Can Be Emotional… • It’s to be with Joy! Phil. 1:4 • Prayer should be thankful! Colossians 4:2 • Prayers must be thoughtful! Eph. 6:18; 1 Tim. 2:1-2 • With tears and cries… Hebrews 5:7 – Hagar was heard… Genesis 16:10-11, 13 – It recognizes God’s power: “You are the God who sees”
  6. 6. Prayer is Personal • It unites you to others and God. Acts 1:14; 1 Cor. 1:10 • Individually… Romans 10:1; Acts 10:31 – “Let your requests” Phil. 4:6 – For your Spiritual well being Matthew 26:41 • Importance of prayer for the married… 1 Cor. 7:5
  7. 7. • Are you plugging into it? – If not, make that change today! James 5:16 • Become a child of God who plugs into the power of prayer. • Be saved today! – Hear & believe… Acts 18:8 – Repent… Acts 11:18 – Confess… Acts 8:37 – Baptism… Acts 2:38
