Sermon Notes

How do you discover God’s Will? By the careful study of God’s Word. Prayer is not about getting my will in Heaven but getting God’s Will on Earth. Nothing lies outside the reach of prayer except that which lies outside the Will of God. Do you want to know the secret to answered prayer: You must confess your personal sin. You must forgive others. Forgiveness is the key to all relationships that are healthy, strong, and lasting.


Did you know that God will hear your prayer whenever you are? The word all speaks of the frequency of prayer. You may ask why should we pray? Because Jesus told us to! We should pray because prayer is God’s appointed way to obtain things. Prayer is the way by which God helps us to overcome our anxiety and worry. Prayer is not an option; it’s a necessity!

  • To grow spiritually, you must read, study, and love the Word of God.
  • To be a growing Christian, you must share your faith.
  • You need to be an active part of the church.
  • To be a growing Christian, you must have a prayer life.
