Devotion on Prayer

I am thankful for Bro. Pruitt sending this devotion. I thought you would enjoy it as well.

May your services go well this weekend.

Matt. 26:38-46

Jesus Prayer

I) It was a lonely prayer: v. 39a “went a little farther..”
Different prayer is good
Family prayer
Social prayer
Group prayer
Church prayer they all are good.
But, they will not be sufficient, as a lonely prayer w/God. Where no one else hears you but God.

II) It was a humble prayer: v. 39a “fell on his face…”
Humility gives us a good foothold in prayer.

III) It was a prevailing prayer: v. 39-44
He went 3 different times until He prevailed.
Like the widow women in Luke 18:3-5 we need do the same.

IV) It was a resignation prayer: v. 39c, 42c
Luke 22:42 “never the less not my will but thine be done.
You yield/God yields
Let it be, as God’s will and God’s will determine the best
Be content to leave it in prayer in His hands who knows when
to give, how to give, what to give, what with to give and what to with hold.
