Praying Like Jesus

Alfredo Ramos Week 2

Pastor Fredo Ramos talks about the transformative power of Intercessory prayer. He delves into the challenges and rewards of maintaining the discipline of prayer in contemporary times teeming with distractions and rampant cynicism. He explores the role of faith in igniting both - prayer and purposeful action, and the crucial involvement of intercessory prayer emphasizing the partnership between God and believers through prayer.

Think about the prayer of Jesus in John 17. What surprised you about what Jesus prayed and why? Ask Him to bring to mind people He wants you to pray for and for what, and then pray for them. Next, ask Him to help you discern any others you are burdened for, and pray for their needs as well. Thank God for the good He will do for these people as you partner with Him in prayer. Ask that He will help you to persevere in praying until He fulfills His will for them. Close your time by thanking Jesus for His prayers for you and for the prayers of others that He has used to shape you into who you are today.

You cannot be a Christian without prayer. The Christian life is rooted in prayer. There are many reasons why Christians struggle to pray consistently, even though they know they should. The distracting noise of our world, not having the desire to pray, not knowing how to pray, or not feeling safe to say, ‘I don’t know how to pray (or pray consistently),’ are just some of the major barriers to prayer. In this series, ‘40 Days of Prayer,’ the barriers to and myths about prayer will be addressed, and our congregation will be educated and equipped to pray and implement consistent, healthy, and meaningful prayer rhythms and practices into their lives, as well as learn about different forms of prayer. These rhythms, practices, teachings, and truths around prayer will come from the life and example of the man who was the closest to God, Jesus.
