A Theology of Prayer #9

By: Bryan Wheeler Scripture: Isaiah 64:7; Luke 11:3 Series: Boot Camp Basics for Believers
REVIVING YOUR PERSONAL PRAY LIFE 1st – Repent of Your Neglect of Prayer – To Neglect Prayer Is To Neglect God – Isaiah 64:7 2nd – Purpose To Pray – set aside specific times each day when you are determined to go to a secret place and do nothing but pray. 3rd – Purpose To Persevere – you must sanctify the habit of prayer with a holy resolve… 4th – Pray With Notes – there is no better way to establish the habit and enjoyment of prayer than to write down not only the answers to prayer, but the blessing received, and the discoveries made while you are engaged in prayer. 5th – Ask God For The Holy Spirit – Luke 11:13 6th – Stir Up A Holy Sobriety In Your Heart – concerning the present realities of heaven, hell, and eternity. Try to pray from a Judgment Day perspective. 7th – Pray With A Conscious Sense Of God’s Presence – Labor to feel God’s eyes upon you and see if that won’t revive your prayer life. 8th – Consider The Times In Which We Live – this violent, wicked, immoral, God-hating, law-breaking generation should provoke all who love the Lord and are zealous for His glory to be very earnest in their prayers.
