Prayer – A Phone Call To God

Filed under: CG Notes — campusalive @ 9:25 pm

This is a session in CG that we did a while back. More specifically, during the 23rd of July. :)

The Power of Prayer

1. What is prayer?

Prayer is many things, touching heaven, calling upon God’s guidance, a lifestyle Jesus wants us to follow, speaking to Him constantly as you would to a friend and worshipping Him, by seeking only Him through prayer.

2. Why should I pray?

Surely, if God already knows our thoughts, and nothing is hidden from His sight, we don’t need to pray because He already knows my needs?

Matthew 7: 7 – 8, James 5: 15 – 19, 1 Chronicles 5: 18 – 20, Deuteronomy 4: 7, Romans 8: 26 – 27

3. Should I ever stop praying?

There are times when you’ve prayed so hard, fasted for days, and still that which you’ve prayed for does not come true. Why does this happen? Will you still continue to keep the faith even though you feel so terribly disappointed? Will you doubt God’s love?

2 Corinthians 12: 8 – 9, 1 Peter 3: 12, Luke 18: 1, Colossians 4: 2

Psalm 116: 2 Because he bends down and listens, I will pray as long as I have breath!

Psalm 32: 6 – 7

Therefore, let everyone who is godly
pray to you
while you may be found;
surely when the mighty waters
rise,
they will not reach him.
You are my hiding place,
You will protect me from trouble
And surround me with songs of deliverance.

Selah.

Remember! It’s not just about praying as well. We also need to listen to Him.

Luke 6: 46 – 49, 1 Kings 19: 12, Psalm 17: 6, Psalm 18: 6, Psalm 102: 17, Isaiah 59: 1, 1 John 5: 14 – 15
