    Contributed by Dale Pilgrim on Feb 15, 2008
    based on 4 ratings

  • Wrestling In Prayer

    based on 11 ratings

    There are times that much wrestling is required in prayer. Epaphras was an excellent example of this.

    Colossians 4:12-13 KJV Epaphras, who is one of you, a servant of Christ, saluteth you, always labouring fervently for you in prayers, that ye may stand perfect and complete in all the will of God.

  • Effectual Fervent Prayer Series

    Contributed by Maurice Mccarthy on Oct 20, 2013
    based on 4 ratings

    Fervency in prayer is like the tension a string puts on a bow, it transfers its energy to the arrow to make it fly straight and true. An effective prayer is one that is successful in producing a desired or intended result.

    In this passage Jesus tells us that those who have faith in Him will do greater works than He did while on earth. Just what did Jesus mean by “greater works?” How could those of us who believe on Him possibly do greater works than those Jesus performed during His ministry on earth? After all, Jesus more

    In today’s sermon I want to suggest some reasons why perfectly proper prayers may go unanswered.

    Scripture Some time ago I read a story about a young boy who was praying for a bicycle for Christmas. But his family was very poor, and when Christmas morning came there was no bicycle.
