Jesus On Prayer: Model Prayer
Matthew 6:9-13; Luke 11:1-4
Key Concept: Our prayers are more __ when we think God first, others second, and me third.
How do we start praying with focus and intensity on God’s kingdom and God’s will?
1) Make the goal of your life to __ God.
2) Keep __ everything to God.
3) Pray as He __.
Go where the Spirit __ you and pray __.
Three ways our prayers become self-centered instead of
- Short- __ Prayers
These prayers place our comfort at the center of God’s activity in the world.
- __-motivated Prayers
These prayers confuse selfish desires with concern for others.
- __ Prayers
Not all prayer requests are directed to God. Sometimes we pray “at” others.
1) Ask the Holy Spirit to prompt you every time your prayers turn selfish.
2) Ask God to use this message series to revive, enhance, and strengthen each person’s prayer life.
