PRAYING FOR A SPIRITUAL BREAKTHROUGH

MATTHEW 6: 9-13 - JESUS SAID, IN THIS MANNER, THEREFORE, PRAY: OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE YOUR NAME. YOUR KINGDOM COME. YOUR WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN. GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY BREAD. AND FORGIVE US OUR DEBTS, AS WE FORGIVE OUR DEBTORS. AND DO NOT LEAD US INTO TEMPTATION, BUT DELIVER US FROM THE EVIL ONE. FOR YOURS IS THE KINGDOM AND THE POWER AND THE GLORY FOREVER. AMEN.

THERE ARE TWO SPIRITUAL ACTIVITIES WHICH ARE TO BE AN UNCEASINGLY PART OF A BELIEVER'S LIFE. -- THERE ARE TWO GREAT PILLARS THAT HOLD UP THE BELIEVER IN THE MATTER OF DAILY LIVING. -- ONE IS THE STUDY OF THE WORD OF GOD AND TWO IS PRAYER. -- THE APOSTLES DECLARED IN ACTS 6:4 - WE WILL GIVE OURSELVES CONTINUALLY TO PRAYER, AND THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD. -- PRAYER IS OUR SPEAKING TO GOD. STUDYING THE WORD IS GOD SPEAKING TO US.

THERE ARE TWO BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES THAT WILL CAUSE A SPIRITUAL BREAKTHROUGH.

LET US BEGIN BY DISCOVERING THE FIRST BREAKTHROUGH – PRAYER.

OUR FATHER: TRUE PRAYER BEGINS BY RECOGNIZING GOD – WE FORGET ABOUT OURSELVES AND WE GLORIFY GOD.

OUR – NOT MY FATHER BY OUR FATHER. OUR IS PLURAL – MORE THAN ONE! WHO IS THIS PLURAL?

IT IS JESUS – WHEN WE COME TO GOD WE COME WITH JESUS – GOD WILL NOT HEAR OUR PRAYER WITHOUT JESUS WHEN GOD LOOKS AT US, HE DOES NOT SEE US, HE SEES JESUS.

DO YOU THINK GOD WILL HAVE ANY PROBLEM HEARING AND ANSWERING JESUS’ REQUEST? THAT IS WHAT IT MEANS… WHATEVER YOU ASK OF THE FATHER IN JESUS NAME HE WILL GIVE IT TO YOU. (JOHN 14:14)

IT ALSO MEANS THAT WE PRAY IN AGREEMENT WITH OUR BROTHER AND SISTERS IN CHRIST. – WHERE TWO AGREE TOUCHING HEAVEN IT SHALL BE DONE. IT IS GOING TO GOD WITH OUR ARMS AROUND ALL OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS. WE ARE TO PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER -- A PRAYER LIST CAN HELP US TO PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER.

IF WE ARE GOING TO TALK ABOUT PEOPLE LET US DO IT ON OUR KNEES. WHAT A BEAUTIFUL PICTURE IF WE COULD SEE ALL OF GODS CHILDREN TALKING TO HIM ALL AT ONE TIME!

FATHER – GOD IS NOT THE FATHER OF EVERYONE – HE IS CREATOR OF ALL BUT NOT THE FATHER. IN ORDER FOR GOD TO BE OUR FATHER, WE MUST RECEIVE JESUS AS OUR LORD AND SAVIOR -- JOHN 1:12 - BUT AS MANY AS RECEIVED HIM, TO THEM GAVE HE THE POWER TO BECOME THE SONS OF GOD, EVEN TO THEM THAT BELIEVE ON HIS NAME.

EPHESIANS 5:1 – BE IMITATORS OF GOD AS DEAR CHILDREN! -- YOU HAVE HEARD THE SAYING, LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON! IT SHOULD CHALLENGE US TO LIVE AS A GOOD EARTHLY FATHER TO HONOR OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN!

GOD IS THE PERFECT FATHER: MATTHEW 5:48 – BE YE THEREFORE PERFECT AS YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN IS PERFECT

IN FATHER GOD THERE IS RELATIONSHIP:

YOU CANNOT HAVE A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH AN IDOL. AN IDOL HAS EYES BUT CANNOT SEE; EARS BUT CANNOT HEAR; A MOUTH BUT CANNOT SPEAK; HANDS BUT CANNOT REACH OUT TO US AND MEET OUR NEEDS! --- OUR FATHER HAS EYES AND CAN SEE; HE HAS EARS AND CAN HEAR; HE HAS A MOUTH AND CAN SPEAK; AND HANDS THAT WILL REACH DOWN AND COMFORT US AND MEET OUR NEEDS!
