About Prayer in 1 Timothy

January 8, 2011 Leave a comment

In 1 Timothy 2 and 4, Paul reminds Timothy of the importance of “petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving.”

He particularly tells Timothy that people should always pray for their leaders.

I don’t pray for my leaders often.  I should do this more.

One Pattern of Powerful Prayer

January 8, 2011 Leave a comment

In Acts 4, Peter and John are arrested by the religious leaders because they are caught preaching about Jesus publicly.

Upon their release, they went back to share their story with other followers of Christ.

During their prayer, they begin with a description of God’s power, then quote scripture, and finally connect it to their personal experiences.

If I took God’s power more seriously and connected scripture to my personal experiences, I’d have a richer prayer life, too.
