Jul 31, 2019

Unlocking the Power of Prayer

At Turning Point Church of Galveston, we believe in harnessing the incredible power of prayer to bring about positive change in our lives, our community, and beyond. In this sermon discussion, we dive into the teachings of Matthew 7:7-11, where Jesus encourages his followers to persistently ask, seek, and knock in their prayers.

The Promises of Matthew 7:7-11

In Matthew 7:7-11, Jesus assures his disciples that if they ask, it will be given to them; if they seek, they will find; and if they knock, the door will be opened to them. These powerful words emphasize the importance of approaching God with fervent and persistent prayers.

Asking in Confidence

When we come before God with our requests, it is crucial to approach Him with confidence and faith. We believe that God is a loving Father who desires to bless His children abundantly. Through prayer, we can lay our requests before Him, knowing that He hears us and will respond according to His perfect will.

Seeking with Diligence

Seeking requires active participation on our part. It involves diligently searching for God's will, His guidance, and His plans for our lives. As we immerse ourselves in His Word and spend time in prayer, we can discover the paths He has set before us and align our desires with His divine purpose.

Knocking with Persistence

Knocking symbolizes perseverance and determination. It represents our unwavering commitment to pressing on in prayer, even when we face obstacles or encounter delays. By knocking persistently, we demonstrate our trust in God's timing and His ability to bring about transformation in our lives.

Prayer as a Catalyst for Change

Prayer is not just a means of asking for personal needs; it is a powerful spiritual practice that can initiate profound change in our lives and the world around us. When we commit to a life of prayer, we open ourselves up to experiencing God's transformative power and His divine intervention.

Building an Intimate Relationship with God

Through prayer, we cultivate a deep and intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father. It is through this connection that we can experience His love, find solace in His presence, and learn to trust Him in every aspect of our lives. Prayer becomes a beautiful dialogue between us and God, where we can pour out our hearts, express our gratitude, and seek His wisdom and guidance.

Discovering God's Will and Purpose

As we engage in prayer, we open ourselves up to discerning God's will and purpose for our lives. It is in the stillness of prayer that we can hear His gentle whispers and receive clarity and direction. Through regular prayer, we align our desires with God's plans, allowing Him to work in and through us for His glory.

Interceding for Others and our Community

Prayer extends beyond our personal needs and desires. We are called to intercede for others, lifting them up before God and seeking His intervention in their lives. As a church community, we come together to pray for our families, our neighbors, our city, and the world. Through our collective prayers, we believe in bringing positive change and making a difference in the lives of those around us.
