"Praying With An Eye To the Future"
John 17.1,20-26
August 15, 1999
Dr. Ernest L. Easley

This morning, we're finishing our study of the greatest prayer ever
prayed. And what a wonderful time we've had as we've listening in on the
prayer life of the Lord Jesus Christ! And His prayer is recorded in the 17
th chapter of the gospel according to John.

Now as you're finding John 17, let me remind you that tonight at
5:30 p.m. sharp, we're going to have our first church-wide prayer meeting.
And I want to especially encourage you younger couples to attend. We've
made provision for your children during this time.

If you have preschoolers, they'll be taken care of in the preschool

Teenagers, they'll be having their own prayer meeting along with choir
rehearsal. So, I believe we've made adequate provisions for your
children. So you are without excuse!

And by the way, our prayer meeting will take place every Sunday at
5:30 p.m. This is not a one time only prayer meeting. We're not going to
become a prayer-driven church with one prayer meeting!

Now I can hear somebody ask, "If I attend prayer meeting, will I be
asked to pray out loud?? Well, the answer is no. I know there are some
people who don't feel comfortable praying out loud, so far anyway! So,
you won't be asked to pray out loud but you'll be given the opportunity if
you would like too!

So, you plan to be here at 5:30 p.m. sharp! If when you arrive and
we're already praying, quietly come find a seat and join in!

Now remember, our prayer meeting will conclude around 6:15 p.m.
And then we'll have a 45 minute evening worship of celebration and
praise and have you walking out of here by 7:15 p.m. tonight!

I hope by now you've found John 17. This chapter rec ...
