Praying with the Power of God

Matt Brown Week 4

Prayer is something that we all have to learn, but God has given us the tools we need to grow in how we relate to Him! In this message, Pastor Matt reminds us that the Holy Spirit’s work in our lives is always drawing us closer to God — if we are willing to follow His lead.

Think about your prayer life and ask God to help you discern how humble and honest your prayers are. Did He bring to mind any pride you have that may be hindering your prayer life? Picture what praying humbly and honestly looks like. What do you need to do to cooperate with God in changing how you pray to match this picture you have in your mind more effectively? What thoughts and feelings surface when you think about confessing your sins to God and asking others to pray for you to be healed in areas of need?

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.
