Changing The Conversation



 

Word of the Day: Conversation


The Question: If you couldn’t ask God for a thing, would you have anything to talk to him about?


The Big Idea: It is inevitable, that during your faith journey with God, habits will creep into your spiritual life that God never intended. Therefore, you will have to be intentional about re-shaping them.


Observations:


1. Prayer is not a show.

2. Prayer is not about repetition.

3. Get rid of the empty phrases.

4. The Lord’s Prayer is only the beginning.


The Lord’s High Priestly Prayer:


Now, Father, bring me into the glory we shared before the world began.


~ John 17:5


Now I am departing from the world; they are staying in this world, but I am coming to you.


~ John 17:11


I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message.


~ John 17:20


Paul’s Prayers


When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father


~ Ephesians 3:14


The Illustration


This is a great mystery, but it is an illustration of the way Christ, and the church are one.


~ Ephesians 5:32


Homework:


1. Where is this NOT a conversation?

2. What are the empty phrases I’m bringing in?

3. Is my conversation dominated by needs or am I sharing my heart with him?
