SECTION 3: PRAYER
Transcript of SECTION 3: PRAYER
"Morning by morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; morning by
morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation."
Psalm 5:3, NIV
"Prayer is a journey in which we learn that the best way to travel through life is by listening for the song of the King. And the best way to keep in step with his music is to choose the right traveling companion, Jesus Christ." (pg. 37)
To be able to determine what is God's voice, we have to spend time with him.
Walking with Christ daily is what lets us hear the song that God is playing for us.
There is freedom in prayer
God reveals to us our weaknesses and things that we need to fix within ourselves and sets us free from them.
"In prayer, real prayer, we begin to think God’s thoughts after him: to desire the things he desires, to love the things he loves, to will the things he wills."
How will we be able to become like God when we don't even know Him?
Truly, everything in our spiritual lives mean nothing without prayer.
There is a difference between
You can't say you know God if you haven't spoken to Him.
Prayer can move the heart of God
How to Pray
Why is it important?
"Of all the Spiritual Disciplines prayer is the most central because it ushers us into perpetual communion with the Father." (pg.33)
“Prayer—secret, fervent, believing prayer—lies at the root of all personal godliness,"
To pray is to change. Prayer is the central avenue God uses to transform us.
"The closer we come to the heartbeat of God the more we see our need and the more we desire to be conformed to Christ."
Prayer should always lead to change.
By Diana Ceballos
SECTION 3: PRAYER
Prayer is a conversation with God.
"Perhaps the most astonishing characteristic of Jesus’ praying is that when he prayed for others he never concluded by saying “If it be thy will.” Nor did the apostles or prophets when they were praying for others. They obviously believed that they knew what the will of God was before they prayed the prayer of faith." (pg.37)
1. Knowing your authority.
2. Knowing it's a learning process.
3. Without making it too complicated.
Jesus taught us to come like children to the Father. Be honest!
At the end of the day,
God knows your heart.
Praying for Others
You have to be in tune with what God is saying and what God is doing
Put your flesh on mute
"Listening to the Lord is the first thing, the second thing, and the third thing necessary for successful intercession." (pg. 39)
Prayer is more about listening than speaking.
We must hear, know, and obey the will of God before we pray it into the lives of others.
Hearing the voice of God takes practice.
You may make mistakes but it's okay! Just make sure you are in a safe zone.
Make sure you let the person know that you are human and sometimes you fall and make mistakes but it's okay! Get back up!
Intimacy Built in Prayer
Intimacy between parents and children that has room for both seriousness and laughter.
When we pray, God will reveal the things don't run away from that. It will make you better.
Let Go and Let God provide
Let Go and Let God fill you with joy.
"Communication is the key to a good relationship"
We are the church. We are married to God. You need intimacy in a relationship.
Always stay in the "dating stage" with God.
Don't lose your hunger.
Your prayers should connect your heart to your words. Eventually connecting your heart to God's heart.
