God Communicates Through Prayer


Message Title: “God Communicates Through Prayer” 

Memory Text: Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.” Mark 1:35 

Main Text: 2 Chronicles 20:1-17 

Message Truth: Prayer is relational communication with God, more specific, prayer is earthly permission for heavenly interference. 


Why Do Christians Not Pray? 

1.Pride – It overestimates the power of self. 

2.Unbelief – It Underestimate the power of God. 

3.Ignorance – It overestimates the difficulty of talking to God. 

4.Time – It underestimates the value of being with God. 

5.Sin – It Underestimates the destructive power of sin. 

  • Sin is a cancer on the soul. The goal is not just “getting into” heaven. Its like saying the goal of marriage is the sex or money and not relationship with your spouse. 
  • Sin fascinates the assassinates. 
  • God blesses my life within the limits I place on God by my sin.
