Prayer

A New Season for Faith and Prayer



In this message John explains how, whilst the Lord has strong heart desires and powerful plans for the things He passionately desires to do everywhere, (including things He desires to do for us, our region and our nation) the only things that do come about are those that we also have a heart desire and passion for. And that heart desire and passion for Him to work must be expressed through prayer. John encourages that there is a great need for us all to stir our hearts to express, with real passion in consistent prayer, our desire for the Lord to do those great things that we envision for life all around us. There are great outcomes to be obtained.

The Prayers of Paul



In the book of Ephesians, the apostle Paul recorded the prayers he was praying for the Ephesian church. In examining these prayers, we find keys that we ourselves should also pray. However in this sermon by John Alley, he explains that these are prayers are meant to be prayed for an entire community of believers, and intended to bring them together into deeper things of the Lord. Take up those prayers of Paul, and add your weight of faith to what God wants to do among us as a people.

During our New Years Even prayer meeting in 2017 we had discussed between us some of the difficulties and hardships of 2017. The Lord was with us, but it had been hard work. Many of us felt that the year behind contained many lessons and much learning for us, and that along with that season, that a new period lay ahead. Not just in that prayer meeting, but ever since, there is real sense of hope and optimism for 2018. The word that best describes what we believe and feel is 'opportunity.'

Our Service in the Kingdom of God



John Alley begins his message with a question – “How is my life meant to be fruitful for God?” John goes on to give some examples of matters that need to be given our attention in order to live such a life. First, we need to come to grips with God’s authority and yield completely to him. In baptism, we show outwardly that we are submitting totally to God. Forgiveness and love of enemies is another vitally important matter to which we must give our attention if we are to serve God, as is the renewing of our minds and devotion to prayer. Watchfulness and thankfulness should be marks of our lives, and a life of service to the Lord and to others is, in fact, worship, says John. John concludes with a Scripture from the book of Philippians which exhorts us to continue to work out our salvation with fear and trembling...so that we may become blameless and pure.

Every Man Perfect #1



When a nation loses its way spiritually, says John Alley, other things slide also. This statement was in response to a recent report that the standards of students’ results in learning have become drastically lower than previously. However, says John, by our prayers the Lord turns all things around to show His glory. John goes on to state that everything goo din this world can be traced back to the gospel – medal breakthroughs, care for the aged and underprivileged and great inventions all had their beginnings in Christianity. However, when an atheistic society gets hold of these good things and twists them to an extreme position, corruption occurs. John refers to Colossians 1:28, where reference is made to “every man perfect”, explaining that according to Scripture we all should strive to be perfect as God is perfect. John emphasizes the need for strong men in leadership in the Church. We must be very prayerful, says John, in these times when there is an agenda afoot to twist and distort that which God meant for good.

Spiritual Warfare 101



The basics of spiritual warfare are being aware that we have an enemy, and knowing how to pray and resist. It is less scary than we think, and yet we must be aware of His schemes. As Eve was deceived with what seemed plausible, so spiritual warfare is waged against God's people in ways that fit in our understanding. Jesus Christ when tempted resisted Satan because He knew the scripture. This sermon takes us to the starting place of spiritual warfare, which is prayer, scripture, and not looking at people as the problem.

The Place of Prayer



Solomon prayed for the people of God and God responded with a precious promise (2 Chronicles 6 and 7). Today, says Jonathan Maxwell, we are the temple and we are the priests. Jesus Himself is our intercessor and we have the promises in a more complete way. There are needs in the nation, in our own city and in our individual lives, says Jonathan, and no matter what is going on around us, the solution begins with us. Our prayers make a huge difference, whether or not we believe we are good pray-ers, because of the faith of Christ who prayed for us. In conclusion, Jonathan reminds the people “God has not changed. The things he did in the past, he can do today. But it starts with the individual believer – with me!”

How Much Should We Pray?



If you were in a room full of money and were told we could have as much as we wanted, how much effort would we make in collecting it? Would we work for five minutes then stop satisfied we had "done our bit for the day." Or would we complain about the lack of air conditioning as we pick up money. Or would we complain that "its boring picking up all this money." Prayer holds higher value to us that money does, and yet we seem to not be aware of the value of the currency of heaven. How much should we pray? The answer is, as much as possible.
