D) THE SPIRIT ITSELF MAKES INTERCESSIONS FOR US

POINT: IT STARTS SMALL AND SLOW, BUT OVER TIME A PERSON SHOULD GET TO THE POINT WHERE THEY CAN PRAY WITH CONFIDENCE, EVEN BE ABLE TO PRAY WITH OTHER PEOPLE. IT IS OUR DUTY AND OUR PRIVILEGE TO BE ABLE TO PRAY.

POINT: WE CAN’T LOSE HEART WHILE WE ARE HOPING AND WAITING FOR THE RETURN OF CHRIST.

CONCLUSION: FAINT

MEANS TO BE AFRAID, DISCOURAGED, OR TIRED TO DESPAIR, OR TO LOSE HEART. 2 THESS 3:13 SAYS BRETHEN BE NOT WEARY IN WELL DOING.

PRAYER MOVES THE ARM, THAT MOVES THE WORLD, TO BRING DELIVERANCE DOWN.

JESUS WANTS HIS FOLLOWERS TO KNOW THIS TRUTH AND LIVE BY IT, LIVE A LIFE OF PRAYER.
