Thursday Teaching Series
Knowing the dynamics of battle is key to success for any army. Those in command gather intelligence about the enemy, they create a plan of attack, and they prepare to respond appropriately to ensure victory. Wise leaders choose their battles and fight to win.
As believers it is time for us to get our battle plan ready. It is time for us to strategically prepare and fight for our homes and families. It is time for us, as the church, to stand up for truth. And prayer is a powerful weapon that is absolutely necessary to ensure our victory in this spiritual battle. So, welcome to The Battle Plan for Prayer Bible study.
We believe in the power of prayer. We’ve seen it in God’s Word. We’ve seen prayer work in the lives of others. And we’ve experienced it first hand in our own lives. We grew up in a praying home. Our church is a praying church. We have praying friends. It’s undeniable to us that God willingly, readily, and powerfully answers prayer. Stories in the Bible may seem far-fetched until you experience God and answered prayer for yourself.
Many in our generation have lost sight of the power of prayer. We don’t pray. Prayer is hard work. It’s easier to go out and attempt to fix things ourselves than to pray. Because prayer requires us to be still, quiet, humble, dependent, and honest before a sovereign and holy God, prayer becomes our last resort. But prayer is so misunderstood and underutilized.
What would happen if churches really began to pray again? What if believers got right with the Lord and began to seek His face again? Second Chronicles 7:14 reminds us that if “My people who are called by My name humble themselves, pray and seek My face, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.”
We believe God is raising up an army of prayer warriors in our generation. We are asking you to go with us on this journey and equip yourself and others to pray more effectively. We will discuss types of prayer, hindrances to prayer, keys to effective prayer, praying strategically for the lost and for believers alike. We will be sharing real stories of answered prayer in our lives and in Christian history and we will be hearing from some of our generation’s most respected prayer teachers and trainers and learning from them as well.
