Five Things I Believe When I Pray

September 20, 2020

Text: Acts 12:1-16.

What I like about this text:

  • Church praying.
  • Peter sleeping.
  • Rhoda Rejoicing.

Why don’t we see Miracles today?

1. Sometimes = (John 16:24)

2. Often =

People say, “I want to be a person of prayer.” That doesn’t just happen. It’s a decision that requires militant attention. More important than choosing a time to pray, is finding people to pray with. They will force you into a time. Who prays with you?

Five Things I Believe When I Pray:

1. God

“For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their prayer.” (1 Peter 3:12)

“This is the confidence (faith: I believe this for sure) we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” (1 John 5:14)

2. God

Exodus 2:25, Exodus 3:7, Exodus 4:31, 1 Peter 4:7

3. God

Acts 12:7-11 (five miracles)

 

4. God

Acts 12:20-23

5. God

 

Questions to consider:

  • Do you desire to pray? Ask God to give you a desire to pray.
  • Who prays with you? Invite someone to pray with you.
  • Have you asked for God’s peace in whatever situation is troubling you?
  • Do you trust God’s justice, or are you relying on the anger of this world to solve our problems? Release your anger in this hour.
