Pray Great Prayers

March 31, 2016

Matthew 7:7-8

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.

Good Morning Men!

Last night I listened to a short sermon by pastor and teacher Chip Ingram. The title was Pray Great Prayers. One of the things that really tugged on my heart is that if we are very honest with ourselves are prayers are very small and limited.

How often do we really pray for things that are so out of reach for ourselves, and so unimaginable that truly only the God of the universe could bring them into reality?

I know for me personally, rarely ever.

I want to change that.

The important thing Chip said, is that every great prayer must be linked to a promise in God’s Word.

The reason is our sinful nature many times will twist our desires to be self-centered or materialistic.

Men if we truly want to pray great prayers, and see them answered let’s try these 3 steps.

  1. Spend time in God’s Word learning His promises. Put some sweat on your brow from the Living Word of God.
  2. Spend time in prayer, with a clear mind, no distractions and having only one prayer agenda; experiencing more of God Himself. Yearning to hear his still, small voice.
  3. Start to journal the things God places on your heart. Put a date to it. As God answers your prayers, start checking them off with how and when He did.

The above verse is so much more powerful than any of us realize. Lets call God on His promises. Lets ask, seek and knock for God’s will and purpose in our lives.
