ALWAYS PRAY AND DON’T GIVE UP


Jesus taught that we should “always pray and not give up”


· Not because God is hard of hearing

· Not because God needs to be pestered into answering

our requests

· Not because God doesn’t want to answer us


NO… Jesus taught us always pray and not give up because, when we pray, our prayers carry weight. EVERY TIME you and I pray we unleash more and more power from the throne of God


· Are you praying for someone in your family to become a Christian?

Every prayer you pray puts more and more pressure on that person to listen to God…


· Do you pray for your friends in their daily struggles

Every prayer you pray imparts to them more and more power from God


· Do you have difficulties with someone at work

Every prayer you lift up to God’s throne brings God’s power to bear on difficult people and situations.


Prayer is not a passive act on our part

Prayer is AN AGGRESSIVE, ACTIVE MINISTRY. You are putting your shoulder to the wheel and moving the forces of heaven.
