Summary: How Praying for the in-filling of the Holy Ghost is a much needed tool for the borned again!!
PRAYER CHANGES THINGS
When you try to do something without praying, what happens???
But have you ever noticed the difference
of what happens when we pray first???
You can try your very best and your very hardest, and with the most effort, and the most perfection, that you think is possible, and fall on your face every time without prayer!!!
BUT when you pray first it just seems that everything falls right into place don’t it??....
EVEN THE SIMPLEST THINGS WE DO!
Just like reading your bible for example
I can pick up my bible and sometimes read several verses or maybe even a couple of chapters and I wonder what I’ve read...
And then I remember I didn’t pray yet..
I didn’t pray for God to give me His wisdom and knowledge and understanding and retainment of His Word...
And then with just that simple little prayer in Jesus Name you see so much difference! and so much more understanding...
So does it help to take time to pray.....
OF COURSE IT DOES!!!
AAAAHHH God’s word says where two or three are gathered together...
And where two or more will come in one accord...that’s when we start to see some action begin to take place in our Walk with God...AMEN
With that simple little thing called prayer we’ll begin to see Souls Saved, and The Sick Healed, and See those bound by the things of this world, People Delivered, and Burdens will begin to be lifted, and we begin to see the power come....Revivals start and the missionary’s begin to see things start happening, and Churches will make large strides and Pastors will begin to preach and teach like never before..and We begin to lift up the Name of Jesus Christ Higher than any other name...Because there’s something about that name...
That Name there’s a Power within itself but when you mingle this thing called Prayer with that Name above all names...
PRAYER CHANGES THINGS!!!!
There’s a little bird called the secretary bird and he has wings and he can fly but sometimes his enemy will begin to sneak up on him, much like the devil will attempt to do to you and I tonight...and He won’t have enough sense to spread his wings and fly away from his enemy and what happens???
Don’t that remind you of you and Me tonight????
Christians have wings also tonight and they’re called prayer... and at any time we can mount up and spread our little wings. But way to often when we get into trouble.. We forget to pray...That’s our wings people
And when we forget what happens every time?????
Our problems overcomes us or our troubles overcomes us...and we end up being defeated before we even get started...
Look here at the people that’s in our reading tonight... they had been witnessing faithfully to the resurrection of Jesus Christ
Then troublesome times came, and what happened???? Persecution set in on them..
And they were forbidden to speak again about the name of Jesus.....
My God what would we do tonight if we were forbidden to speak the name Of Jesus Christ.....
I’ll tell you right now we’d all be in big trouble!!!! If we couldn’t call on Jesus!!!
But what did they do?? What was their answer to this threat of persecution??
It was prayer!!!!
Our Scrip says and when they had prayed...The place was shaken..
People will say today!!!!Well we don’t have a move of God today like we did 30 years ago...or 40 years ago....
I wonder why tonight?????
It’s because we’re way behind on our prayer life!!
PRAYER CHANGES THINGS
We have to get back to the basics people
and I believe that its Prayer!!!
See believers have all things in common..
Like that song Rise and Shine it says
Its been two thousand years but the story’s still the same!!!!!
Let me tell you something tonight...The story might still be the same People, but the anointing and the feeling of the spirit is all different each and every night!!!!!
We might have a powerful feeling spirit last night but tomorrow it’s a binding spirit...
But if we can overcome what binding us down,,, then look out tonight!!!!!!
And tell me quick what is that helps us to overcome that dampening spirit and what is that helps us to overcome that binding spirit, And what is it that changes it all around for us if we just humble ourselves down and begin to ask from the bottom of our hearts?????????
Come on TELL ME!!!!!
PRAYER.CHANGES THINGS! AMEN
Prayer is what makes our little
world go round and round!!!
When you begin to Pray things begin to happen and all these guys in our Script tonight were all filled with the Holy Ghost
