Praying With Persistence
We too at times are tempted to pray conditional prayers; to bargain with God
in our prayers - thinking incorrectly that we can manipulate God in order to
get what we want. Or perhaps at times we abandon prayer altogether; thinking
incorrectly that we don't need God and we don't need to pray. Rather, we can
do everything on our own or we can rely on other human beings to get what we
When You Don't Have a Prayer
Jesus isn't teaching that prayer is a way of wresting away from a reluctant
God something he doesn't really want to give. But he is teaching us that
consistent prayer gets results. He follows up the story by saying, "Ask and
it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be
opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to
him who knocks, the door will be opened." ...
How to Establish a Consistent Prayer Life
Every Christian "wishes" he/she would pray more - enjoy it more - be more
consistent in praying. We all want that. But wanting something is not the same
thing as choosing something. ...
We all live pretty much with what we've chosen. It's hard to say and hard to
hear; but the truth is my prayer life and your prayer life is what we've chosen
it to be. The good news is we all have the power to choose something different.
That means we have right here this morning opportunity for a better prayer life
if we choose to have one. ...
How You Can Receive Powerful Answers to Your Prayer
The next time you pray, make a list with specific prayer points and pray
boldly. Then, write the answer down when God gives it! Doing this will not only
help you see a clearer picture of God's faithfulness, it will empower your
prayer life as you continue to pray boldly! ...
The Ultimate Objective of Prayer
When Moses said to the Lord, "Please, show me Your glory," he was saying, "God,
I want to see You now. I want You to actually show Your face to me."
That really is what prayer is all about. It is not about getting stuff from God.
Prayer, when it reaches its ultimate objective, is getting God. It is God that
you want - it's closeness with Him. ...
Praying to the Trinity
What we normally mean by "prayer" is talking to God (albeit silently) about
things we need or things that worry us - or praising him and thanking him for
this and that. Much of that kind of prayer involves thinking, imagining,
conceptualizing. It is takes place in a mind full of echoes and mumblings of
conversation, memories of things that have happened or fears of what may be
about to, or simply random words rattling around in our head - traces of
thoughts that have not quite died away. ...

Be An Angel to Someone
We have the opportunity ourselves to play both sides of the "angel" encounter,
