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.

PRAY FIRST: Praying Powerful Prayers!
Welcome as we continue the series PRAY FIRST where we will explore and discovery why communicating with God is the answer.
When people pray God does amazing things!
If you pray through God will come through! Don’t quit!
There is true infinite power in prayer.
Prayer is our divine connection to God.
The enemy attacks our prayer life.
Decide: Keep complaining or give it to God and trust Him
Romans 12:12 New International Version (NIV)
12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.’
God will be with you in every storm.
Hebrews 6:19 New International Version (NIV)
19 We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain,
1 Thessalonians 5:17 New International Version (NIV)
17 pray continually,
True security is found only in God.
When all else is gone you will always have God.
Luke11:1 New International Version (NIV)
1 One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
Prayer is the pipeline to God!
There is power in every single prayer.
QUESTION: If we know there is power in prayer why don’t we pray powerful prayers?
At Real Hope In Christ our purpose is to love the Lord our God with all of our hearts and with all of our souls and with all of our minds.

Grow in our knowledge and faith,
Give in love and,
Go out into the world to shine brightly with the light of salvation from our Savior Jesus Christ and tell the world what we know is true; God Loves You No Matter What!
We boldly ask God to help us shake the Earth and touch the Heavens!

6in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.
