[PC-USA] 1998-01-25 - Prayer

Prayer -- it is something we should be doing every day, throughout the day. Prayers of adoration, prayers of thanksgiving, prayers of intercession, prayers pouring out our hearts, individual prayers, prayers with fellow church members. Let's look at some of what the word has to say about prayer.

(Psa 8:1 NNAS) "O LORD, our Lord, How majestic is Your name in all the earth, Who have displayed Your splendor above the heavens!"

(1 Th 5:17-18 NNAS) "pray without ceasing; 18 in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

(2 Th 1:11-12 NNAS) "To this end also we pray for you always, that our God will count you worthy of your calling, and fulfill every desire for goodness and the work of faith with power, 12 so that the name of our Lord Jesus will be glorified in you, and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ."

(2 Th 3:1-2 NNAS) "Finally, brethren, pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it did also with you; 2 and that we will be rescued from perverse and evil men; for not all have faith."

(Luke 6:28 NNAS) "bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you."

(Mark 11:24 NNAS) ""Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you."

(Psa 62:8 NNAS) "Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us."
