Summary: A great Sermon on Prayer
How Long since you talked to:
THE FATHER IN HEAVEN
One of my dear friends, you could even say that he was a Father Figure, died a couple years ago!!!!
He had given his heart to the Lord in his bed, just one week before he died.
He had been bed ridden for about a year.
My wife sent me to check on him, and I asked his wife and him if they were ready to meet The Lord.
And my friend Sam said I suppose so!!
I said Sambo that ain’t good enough.
I said do you want to go to Heaven and He
said well Yes I Do!!!
So He accepted the Lord right then and there.
A couple days later I spoke with Him on the Phone and I asked him if he died would he go to Heaven and He said I Sure Will!!!!
That next weekend I went out of town on vacation and got called back to preach his funeral!!!
This may sound bad but : knowing where He went:
It felt really good knowing He wasn’t gonna suffer any more, and not to mention I knew where He Went: To Heaven of Course!!!
I think it was in World War II that this expression was often used by people who hadn’t had much to do with Religion:
I want to talk to the man upstairs!!!!!
So tonight I’m gonna preach on :
and The People of Prayer!!!!!
God’s Promise to all you sinners, is that
We’ve all been told that, God only will hear one prayer form a sinner.
I think he hears all prayers but, he only listens to the sinners repentance prayer.
This out cry to ‘God is the evidence that this person praying, wants to be more than a sinner that’s bound for hell.
He wants his sins forgiven.
God’s word in Romans 10:13 says:
Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved!!!AMEN
This means that there’s no limits as to who will be saved!!!
Whosoever means good folk, bad folk, better folk, and worser folk!!!!
And everybody else in between!!!
God has solemnly promised in His word that all who call on Him will be saved!!!
This ain’t like reciting a poem neither.
It has to come from the deepest, most sincere part of your heart!!!
So if you’ve never been saved tonight, right here very soon you will be given the opportunity to give your life to the Lord.
And We’ll all go to heaven together!!
And also the healing prayer of Faith will also be offered before we leave tonight!!!
There’s but only a 15 second prayer that makes the difference between Heaven and hell!!!
Romans 10:9 says:
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
People it don’t get no plainer than that now does it????
God has promised forgiveness of our sins.
The Christian knows, or he should know, that they ain’t perfect.
Every day in our Christian walk with God we will encounter something sinful in our words, our deeds, or our thoughts.
And God isn’t happy as long as these things stand between Him and this world!!!
If a person loves Jesus Christ he should strive not to allow sin into our lives!!!!
The Bible says:
Resist the devil and he must flee from you!!
The main thing here is that when we do sin we must remember that we are children of God and all we have to do is continue to keep our personal relationship in order with God.
