– when was the last time PRAYER – or going to GOD was your FIRST RESPONSE?
PRAYER IS PERSISTENT
Moses, David… most people with Jesus… PLEADED for Him…
LUKE 11 again – KNOCK – SEEK – ASK
PRAYER IS CONNECTION
What happens when you listen, when you engage… you connect
WAIT – LISTEN – LEAN IN (In HIM)
LUKE 11 Once Jesus was in a certain place praying. As he finished, one of his disciples came to him and said, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
2 Jesus said, “This is how you should pray:[a]
9 “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened
The Lord’s Prayer Traditional Form
Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom,
The power, and the glory,
for ever and ever.
