Here are some notes and audio recording of the 2nd week of our prayer course. Praying this helps you put together your battle plan!
- For what would you like to be known to be devoted? For what would God say you are devoted?
- The more we prioritize scheduled times of prayer, the more often we will gravitate towards spontaneous times of prayer.
- Jesus is your prayer partner (Heb. 7:25)!
- We can learn from biblical examples of scheduled times of prayer in the lives of Nehemiah (Neh. 1:3-5), Daniel (Dan. 6:10-11), and Jesus (Mark 1:35; Luke 6:12; Matt. 14:23; Luke 22:39-41).
- Out of all the things the disciples saw Jesus do, they asked him to teach them how to pray (Luke 11:1; Matt. 6:5-8).
- Most things happen in our life because we put a place and a time on our calendar.
- There are certain times of the day in which you are less distracted or more alert.
- There are certain places in your routine that are less cluttered and more focused.
- You can pray anytime, anywhere, about anything, but you can pray better at certain times in certain places about certain things.
- Pray without ceasing (1 Thess. 5:17).
- When I prioritize prayer at certain times, it becomes more habitual all the time.
- Relationships need longer times of communication in order to endure during shorter times of communication.
- When we have longer scheduled times of prayer with God, it makes the spontaneous times of prayer with God come more naturally.
