Prayer

Every January we focus our discussion on prayer.

My definition for prayer is – Talking to God

Why? God operates through relationship.

A good relationship:

  • Values the other person
  • Has good communication

Colossians 4:2

“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful

Definition of “devote” – Loyalty to a person, promise, or mission

What happens when we pray?

  1. We move God

Colossians 4:3-4

”And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. Pray that I may proclaim it clearly, as I should.”

Prayer is all about relationship

  1. We change

Prayer allows God to Influence us

  1. Authority is unleashed

Matthew 10:1

Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out impure spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.

In the Spiritual realm:

  • Apparently there are levels of authority
  • Apparently we can be given greater levels of authority            

Matthew 28:18

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me”

Prayer does:

  • Change circumstances
  • Change us
  • Change the devil’s ability to work
