Praying for Others: Amazing Future (Ephesians 1:18)

There are people in your life God has called you to pray for. You are their prayer warrior. You cannot be everyone’s prayer warrior, but God has placed them in your life and is calling you to pray for them. They need you to pray for them. They need you to intercede on their behalf. God is calling you to pray over them. The devil hopes you don’t. Part of their victory in life is your prayer life. You will have one or two people you will sense the need to pray for daily. You will have some you will need to pray for weekly and others you will pray for as God lays them on your heart. There is no doubt, there are people in your life who desperately need you as their prayer warrior. Continue reading

How Do I Pray? (Matthew 6:9-13)

  • If I ask should I expect an answer?
  • What if God doesn’t answer my prayer?
  • What if He answers my prayer but I don’t like the way He answered it?
  • How come God answered someone else’s prayer immediately, but He hasn’t answered mine yet?
  • How long should I wait for an answer?

These are good questions and some of them are difficult to answer. But we are going to answer some of them today. Continue reading

Why Should I Pray?

Today we begin a series of lessons called Above the Ceiling. Over the years I’ve heard people say things like, “I feel like my prayers bounce off the ceiling” or “I think my prayers go no higher than the ceiling.” That can be a frustrating feeling, when you are not sure God is listening or God cares or if you are praying right.
