Sermon Notes: Keys to a Powerful Prayer Life
Fire up your prayer’s life series (II)
This is a sermon note translated from my church’s Sunday sermon about Prayer life sometimes ago. This is the second series of the “Fire up your prayer’s life”.
Keys to a Powerful Prayer Life
 PRAY IN JESUS’ NAME (John 14:13-14, John 16:23-24)
Always pray in Jesus’ name! However, be careful in prayer, as sometimes we always say “In Jesus’ name, we pray” too often until the meaning is no longer there!John 16:23-24 – “..ask..” ; “..to Me” – to God, our Father.
Why do we have to pray in Jesus’ name?
Two reasons why a prayer is fulfilled:
- So that God’s name be glorified (John 14:13)
- So that your joy may be full (John 16:24)
Many Christians do not pray because they do not realize that a prayer has power!
 PRAY ACCORDING TO HIS WILL (1 John 5:14-15)
Often we pray because we want Him to be closer to us. This is a wrong concept, as He ALWAYS wants to be closer to us. It’s us who often want to stay away from Him!
How to know God’s Will?
Ask according to His will. How do we know what His will is if we never read His words!
It is God’s will that we have a job (it’s in the bible)
It is God’s will for us to grow.
It is God’s will that He wants everybody to be saved.
Read His Word and you know what His wills are in your life! When we know God’s will, we can pray with more enthusiasm!
Praying according to God’s will, gives us a stronger conviction! (1 John 5:15)
