Sermon Illustrations

So with this power and promise of prayer, what’s gone wrong? Why is the world still in this mess, why is there so much hurt, so much pain, why does the Church seem to be on the back foot, receding not growing? We have the first aid kit, we have the solution. But we don’t use it. Its like having a sprinkler system that starts when someone pushes a button, it’s a small red one on a wall three foot off the floor and clearly labelled, all that is needed is someone to break the glass (its very thin) and push it, did I mention the house is nearly burned down, the neighbours are suffering and need I go on lets get back to prayer and start changing the world!
