PRAYER: Let it Change You

Scripture: Various

Matthew 7:7-11

Communication with a Loving Heavenly Father

God is a perfect Father who knows what is best and is able to provide all we need.
ASK – with confidence
SEEK – matures, teaches, strengthens us
KNOCK – persistence and humbling

Aligns us to God’s Will

Yes, No, or Not right now.

God knows what is best for us all the time.

Matthew 26:36-46

Jesus brought his troubles and sorrow to his heavenly Father.

Jesus accepted the Father’s perfect will and aligned His heart with the Father’s.

Philippians 4:5b–7

From Anxiety to Peace

Our anxiety and worries are replaced by peace we can’t fully understand.

Our thinking changes to align with God’s will.

Take Aways

  • Do you believe God is your heavenly Father?
  • Why don’t you pray more regularly?
  • Are you persistent in your prayer?
  • Do you come to God with demands?
  • Do you know Jesus Christ as your Savior?  Have you personally confessed your sin and accepted his death as payment for your sins? Have you accepted God’s gift of eternal life? Come talk to Pastor Mark.
