Value #6 Prayer
We realize that praying is what Christians and the church are supposed to be known for. Even Jesus said, “My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations…” Mark 11:17. Prayer is not just a Christian practice or part of a Christian worship service, but the visible and demonstrable way we declare that without prayer, nothing of significance happens. Prayer declares that we are weak, He is strong.
Text: John 14:12-17
- We Should Never Underestimate What God Can Do Through Us
“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, – John 14:12a
- Do Even Greater Works than Jesus Did.
and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. – John 14:12b
- Pray and Receive Direction and power for doing the works of Jesus.
You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it! – John 14:13-14
- WE ARE NOT FACING THE MOUNTAIN ALONE
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate,[b] who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth.- John 14:16-17
What might it look like if you took what Jesus promised in John 14:12-14 seriously?
