Theme: Understand The Essence Of Prayer


The message highlights the importance of understanding the true essence of prayer as effective communication with God and encourages believers to approach prayer with the understanding that it makes tremendous power available for dynamic results.


  • Understand The Essence Of Prayer: The message begins with the opening scripture from Ephesians 6:18, emphasizing the importance of prayer and encouraging believers to pray in the Spirit on all occasions.
  • True Essence of Prayer: The text highlights that some people treat prayer as a mere religious ritual, similar to the Pharisees, Sadducees, and Scribes in Bible days. However, it contrasts this with the patriarchs of faith like Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who understood the significance of prayer as effective communication with God.
  • Learning from Jesus and the Apostles: The message emphasizes that the disciples of Jesus desired to learn how to pray effectively, observing the powerful results of His prayers. The apostles in the Book of Acts and the Epistles also provide valuable insights and practical guidance on effective prayer.
  • Prayer as God’s Idea: The text underscores that prayer is God’s idea and that He wants believers to pray because He desires to answer their prayers. Prayer gives God the right to intervene in human affairs and establish His will on Earth.
  • Power of Prayer: Believers are encouraged to pray with the understanding that their prayers make tremendous power available, dynamic in its working, referencing James 5:16.
  • Conclusion: The message concludes by expressing gratitude for the privilege of fellowship with God through prayer and encourages believers to live in the authority of the Word and in the Name of Jesus.
