“The Goal of Being Ever Prayerful”
Genesis 32:22-31 – When we face obstacles in our faith, we are to be steadfast and stand firm in the promises of God.
2 Timothy 3:14-4:5 – No matter what difficulty we are facing, we are to continue bearing fruit in the Word that the Lord has given us.
“We are to pray without ceasing. Always find the time to pray.”
“Fight for and protect our prayer life because prayer is essential part of our life.”
“God puts us in the highest position when we pray. It is a commandment of God.”
“If we are prayerful, we have an inner strength to combat anything that comes our way.”
“Prayer only comes when we know who God is.”
“Persistence mixed with faith is what God wants from us. If we believe God, we will not quit.”
“Prayer is a two-way communication. We build a relationship by talking to and listening to God.”
