Key Passage: Philippians 4:6-7
Misconceptions about prayer:
· Prayer is complicated.
· Prayer is boring.
· Prayer doesn’t work.
Prayer is about relationship.
I have never called you ‘servants,’ because a master doesn’t confide in his servants … But I call you my most intimate friends … John 15:15 TPT
With One Another.
… pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16
How do we pray?
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Philippians 4:6 NLT
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
"My sheep know my voice, and I know them..." John 10:27 CEV
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand … Philippians 4:6-7 NLT
True peace isn’t the absence of problems. True peace is found in the presence of God.
What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
