Prayer 101 (Part 5)
Bible Text: Luke 11:1-13 | Preacher: Pastor Joe Ricchuiti | Series: Luke, Prayer 101
The “how-to” of prayer:
1. Luke 11:5-8 – We should be persistent in prayer because, if a human friend will respond out of his reluctance to our need, how much more will God respond Who is never inconvenienced, never bothered, never reluctant and does not need to be persuaded to meet our need.
2. Luke 11:9-10 – God waits for us to “keep asking, keep seeking, keep knocking,” not because He is reluctant to hear and answer us, but because He desires fellowship with us. Fellowship with God is a primary aspect of prayer.
3. Luke 11:11-13 – Even as human father respond to their children’s requests with good, not harmful things, so God, our Heavenly Father, gives good things to those who seek Him. He will give us better things than we ask for, because His will is best.
