I. The Problem
For some, you are not Connected.
For others, you are Disconnected.
You are not plugged into the power source.
Connection is a heart issue.
Prayer is simply a Conversation with God.
Matthew 6:7 NLT
“When you pray, don’t babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again.
II. The Power
When we pray:
When we pray – Our joy is full
John 16:24 ESV
24 Until now you have asked nothing in my name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.
When we pray – Our peace is past any understanding
Philippians 4:6-7 NLT
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
We pray – so that we will not give into temptation
Matthew 26:40-41 NLT
40 Then he returned to the disciples and found them asleep. He said to Peter,“Couldn’t you watch with me even one hour? 41 Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!”
Prayer is at the same time the greatest and most unused resource that Christians have.
We pray to experience God’s power in our life.
James 5:17 MSG
The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with.
III. The Plan
Connect with God every day this week.
Philippians 4:6 NLT
6 Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything
The more I pray the luckier I get.
James 4:8 NLT
Come close to God, and God will come close to you.
