        Conclusion

        Jesus was teaching His disciples how to pray. Why? He was about to go. My job is to get you to the point where you don’t always have to depend on me. It’s not someone else who does your praying. My job is to have you learn how to have a pure and true relationship with God. You and Him.

         

        Have the God kind of faith. Have God’s Faith.

        It’s not your faith, It’s His Faith

        It’s His Righteousness, not your Righteousness

        It’s His Love, not your love

        Take His Name, not your name

        Take His Life, not your life.

        Everything God has for you has already been done. You just have to access It through Prayer and Faith in Jesus Christ.
