Praying Out & For 2024
NIV Jer 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
WE CAN PRAY OUT GOD’S PLAN FOR OUR LIVES.
THE HOLY SPIRIT SUPERNATRUALLY HELPS US TO PRAY IN LINE WITH GOD’S PLAN (Rom 8:26-27)
WE HAVE A FIRE AND A POWER PROBLEM IN A LOT OF SAINTS.
Matt 3:11 He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.
Acts 1:8 but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses
PRAYER LAYS THE TRACKS IN FRONT OF US...
Deut 31:8 The LORD is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.”
THINGS NEED TO BE PRAYED FOR... GOD ANSWERS PRAYER.
Zech 10:1 Ask rain from the LORD at the time of the spring rain—
James 5:7 Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. The farmer waits for the precious produce of the soil, being patient about it, until it gets the early and late rains. You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near.
2 Chron 7:14 and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Everything from here down is in the notes from 2 weeks ago we did not use
PRAYER IS THE BIRTHING CENTER FOR PURPOSE AND ANSWERS.
THE PRIMARY PURPOSE FOR GODS HOUSE IS PRAYER
Isaiah 56:7 My house shall be called a house of prayer for all people
Mark 11:15 -17 My house shall be a house of prayer for all the nations.
OUR EFFECTIVENESS IN PRAYING FOR OTHERS IS GOING TO REST LARGELY ON OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. HOW WELL WE KNOW HIM.
Prov 15:29 The LORD is far from the wicked, But He hears the prayer of the righteous.
James 5:13 Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; 15 and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.
PRAYER MAKES POWER AVAILABLE
GOD HAS GIVEN US THE PRIVILEDGE AND RIGHT TO ACCESS HIS THRONE FOR HELP.
Heb 4:16 Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
FAITH AND PRAYER WILL POSITION YOU FOR THE HELP YOU NEED
ANSWERED PRAYER IS NEVER BASED ON FEELING, BUT ON FAITH.
GOD WANTS US TO KNOW THAT HIS POWER IS DIRECTED TOWARDS US WHEN WE BELIEVE. (Eph 1:19)
