PRAYER: Is Prayer Important?

The way of prayer is truly the way of life. Let us give ourselves to prayer! Jesus prayed much even though He was God’s only begotten Son from eternity past.

Through His words and His actions Jesus tells us how import prayer is.

“Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.” Mark 1:35.

“You do not have because you do not ask.” James 4:2.

“Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.” John 16:24

Prayer Partners are available at the front of the worship area after today’s service.


From Now On; What’s On Your Mind?-Pastor Jeremy Foster


Reclaim your joy.

Romans 12:2 New International Version (NIV)

2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.


1. I will renew my mind.  You cannot have a positive life with a negative mind.

Jesus will renew your mind if you allow Him to.


  1. Fearful Imagination
  2. Despair
  3. Anger
  4. Worry
  5. Guilt
  6. Sadness
  7. Insecurities
  8. Inaccurate Assumptions

Philippians 4:8-9 New International Version (NIV)

8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Hebrews 12:11 New International Version (NIV)

11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.


2. I will recognize the Mind Monsters.

Recognize your moments of truth.

Matthew 15:15-19 New International Version (NIV)

15 Peter said, “Explain the parable to us.”

16 “Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them. 17 “Don’t you see that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and then out of the body? 18 But the things that come out of a person’s mouth come from the heart, and these defile them. 19 For out of the heart come evil thoughts—murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.

Matthew 12:34 New International Version (NIV)

34 You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.

Words have power.  Your mind creates reality that you live out!

Proverbs 18:21 New International Version (NIV)

21 The tongue has the power of life and death,

    and those who love it will eat its fruit.

If words have power are you listening to leaders or losers?

There will be voices in your life that will lift you up or push you down.

Discover your purpose!

Mark 6:2-6 New International Version (NIV)

2 When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed.

“Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? 3 Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph,[a] Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.

4 Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.” 5 He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. 6 He was amazed at their lack of faith.


Mark 10:46-52 New International Version (NIV)

Blind Bartimaeus Receives His Sight

46 Then they came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples, together with a large crowd, were leaving the city, a blind man, Bartimaeus (which means “son of Timaeus”), was sitting by the roadside begging. 47 When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

48 Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”

So they called to the blind man, “Cheer up! On your feet! He’s calling you.” 50 Throwing his cloak aside, he jumped to his feet and came to Jesus.

51 “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.

The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

52 “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.


Learn how to read the word of God.

Joel 3:10 New International Version (NIV)

10 Beat your plowshares into swords

    and your pruning hooks into spears.

Let the weakling say,

    “I am strong!”


CHALLENGE: For the next 30 days I challenge you to catch yourself when you speak death.

God is not calling you as He sees you; He is calling you as He created you.

Where do the Mind Monsters come from?

Your self-esteem, your self-worth, your self-image is determined to a large degree by what you think the people or person that you has matter most to you thinks about you.

How I see myself is defined by the person who has had the loudest voice in my life.

Psalm 139:17 New International Version (NIV)

17 How precious to me are your thoughts,[a] God!

    How vast is the sum of them!

2 Corinthians 1:20 New International Version (NIV)

20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.

When will you say yes?
