In this webcast, Pastor Stuart Briscoe shares a message from Ephesians 1 titled “A Prayer for Gods People” in our Wednesday evening series at Harvest Christian Fellowship.

Sermon Notes

Have you ever heard the term “Thoughts and prayers” after a great tragedy has occurred? What exactly does this mean? Why do we as a people say this when we are in need of help from a power greater than ourselves?


How effective is our prayer life? Have you ever told someone that you will pray for them? But do we always follow through? In the Bible, we read that Paul himself said “I am remembering you all in my prayers”

  • He was thankful for everyone
  • His thoughts and prayers metastisized
  • He was committed to prayer
  • He was supporting the saints by praying for them

Prayer starts with praise, it should be focused on Christ, and thanking him for what he has done and what he will do. It should not always be for what we want.
