Lord, We Need You!

Prayer is a battle to be fought by believers during every moment of this journey called life. It is where our victories are won, our enemies are defeated, and our hope is refreshed.
Our enemy is Satan. (1 Peter 5:8-9) Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion,
looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him and be strong in your faith.
Our battle is a spiritual battle. (Ephesians 6:12) “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
Our battles in life are against powers we are unable to conquer outside of the power and presence of prayer.
What if we really believed in the power of prayer? What if we believed in the promise found in John 14:13
that tells us, “And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.” If we truly believed that anything is possible through the power
of prayer, I believe it would radically change the condition of our churches and the culture. If we truly believed
in the power of prayer, it would no longer be an afterthought—it would be the main event.
A.W. Tozer (Pastor, teacher, author) said, “To desire revival … and at the same time to neglect prayer and
devotion is to wish one way and walk another.”
Could it be that the battles of your life are looking bigger than they really are because you haven’t been with
the One who’s bigger than all those battles combined?
Which leads me to ask if you are the faithful prayer warrior for the members of your family, for some
servants of God that He’s laid on your heart, for your pastor, your church leaders? So often people
will say, “Well, I guess all I can do is pray.” What? All I can do is go into the very Throne Room of
Almighty God and pray down His unbeatable power. All I can do is pray? There is no more powerful,
no more decisive position you can play on God’s team than being a prayer warrior. Let us therefore
come boldly to the throne of grace… (Hebrews 4:16a)
Something to think about!

Life Changing PRAYER

Wednesdays at 11:00 a.m. Begins January 9, 2019

Jim Cymbala, pastor of Brooklyn Tabernacle, unlocks the truths he has learned about prayer that transformed his church from a struggling inner-city congregation to a thriving community of believers who pray with passion, focus, and faith. 
He reveals how prayer can likewise transform your life and your church when you “approach God’s throne of grace with confidence” (Hebrews 14:1), certain in the knowledge thatwill meet with you, answer your requests, and extend his mercy to you. It is at the throne of grace that you will also receive power to confront your problems without anxiety, and where the Holy Spirit will gradually shape you into a person who impacts others for Christ.
Prayer is the force that binds believers together, and when God’s people unite and call on his name, powerful things happen in our world.

Prayer Makes a Difference
