WHO?

Next, we addressed the WHO of prayer. Fill in these blanks:

  1. “Effective prayer is a q _ _ _ _ _ t: the F _ _ _ _ r, the S _ n, the S _ _ _ _ t and the C _ _ _ _ _ _ _ n.” (John Blanchard)
  2. For whom should we pray? E _ _ _ _ _ _ e: “I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” (1 Timothy 2:1-2)

WHAT?

So, WHAT exactly is prayer? In short, prayer is c _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ n with God.

And what exactly should we pray? Jesus answered that question with this:

Our F _ _ _ _ r in h _ _ _ _ n,
h _ _ _ _ _ _ d be your n _ _ e.
Your k _ _ _ _ _ m come,
your w_ _ l be done,
on e _ _ _ h as it is in h _ _ _ _ n.
Give us t _ _ _ y
our daily b _ _ _ d.
Forgive us our d _ _ _ s,
as we also have forgiven our d _ _ _ _ _ s.
And lead us not into t _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ n,
but deliver us from the e _ _ l  o _ e.
(Matthew 6:9-13)


WHERE?

So, WHERE should we pray? E _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ e. Follow Jesus’ example. He prayed:

  • in lonely places
  • in crowds
  • in the desert
  • by a river
  • in the mountains
  • by a tomb
  • at a picnic
  • at the dinner table
  • in a garden
  • on the cross

WHEN?

WHEN should we pray? The Bible answers that, too.

Pray c _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ y. (1 Thessalonians 5:16)


HOW?

We also addressed HOW we should pray. First, we looked at how NOT to:

  1. Don’t do it for s _ _ w. Jesus said: “When you pray, do not be like the h _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ s, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men.” (Matthew 6:5)
  2. Don’t b _ _ _ _ e. Jesus said: “When you pray, do not keep on babbling like the p _ _ _ _ s, for they think they will be heard because of their m _ _ y w _ _ _ s.” (Matthew 6:7)

Here’s how TO pray:

  1. Pray o _ _ _ n. “Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16)
  2. Be v _ _ _ _ _ _ t. “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” (Mark 14:38)
  3. A _ k, s _ _ k, k _ _ _ k. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” (Luke 11:9)
  4. Pray with p _ _ _ _ _ n. “And being in anguish he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.” (Luke 22:44)
  5. God’s w _ _ l, not o _ _ s. “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” (Luke 22:42)

AMEN!
