THE MESSAGE

THE CRY OF MY HEART : A PRAYER AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART

1.TRANSFORM ME

It is very important that we pray that God should transform us. Very often we pray for others that God should change them .We see their flaws and mistakes and ask God to transform them.But often we are blind to our own faults.We fail to realise that we need a deep transformation in our own lives.When God changes us that will produce a consequent change in others.Many times others will not change until they see a change in us.May God help us to cry out ’Transform me’.

*************************************

Romans 12:1-2

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

II Corinthians 3:18

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

II Corinthians 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

2.TEACH ME

It is very important that we pray that God should teach us. Many times we are not aware of our ignorance.We fail to realise how much we dont know.We are complacent and confident and think that we know everything.This is a dangerous condition.We must seek God’s revelation and guidance to know His paths and His ways and His truth. Therefore it is very important for us to pray ’Teach me’.

3.TRAIN ME

It is very important that we pray that God should train us.We face so many battles and struggles and attacks of the enemy. Therefore we must ask God to train us to fight these battles.Lack of proper training can cause serious damage in our spiritual walk. Therefore it is very important that we pray ’ Train me’.

An excellent alliterative approach. These points could be developed into a great sermon series.
