Truth and Prayer

Message Title: Truth and Prayer 

Message Truth: The battle to pray is not mainly against prayerlessness but a battle against discouragement, cynicism, and unbelief. 

Message Text: Matthew 6:5-13 


Our Culture and Prayer 

1.Discouragement – I have been let down before. 

2.Cynicism – Whatever is going to happen is just going to happen. 

3.Unbelief – I can’t see God. 

Four Starting Points To Prayer: 

1.Pray Regularly“When you pray” v.5 

2.Pray Sincerely “not like hypocrites” v.5 

3.Pray PrivatelyThen your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. v.6 

  • True faith is shown when you are alone. 
  • God is spirit so you must connect spiritually – humility. Do you want it so bad you are willing to move away from all distractions. 


4.Pray Thoughtfully- “for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.v.8 

  • The more you know about somebody, the more you can discuss. 
  • He already knows what you need – like any good daddy, He knows you are coming for something (Matthew 7:7-8) 


  • Asking- implies humility. 
  • Seeking- demands action. 
  • Knocking – requires repetition.
