HOW TO PRAY FOR YOUR CHURCH
Ronnie Floyd
Ephesians 3:20-21
May 20, 1990

INTRODUCTION:
A basic introductory statement:
"It is almost impossible for a person who prays in the Spirit for the church to be negative and critical of the church. In time, God wiil change your heart or lead you to another church in a godly manner."
Illustration:
"Come Kingdom of God - Be done will of God - on earth, as it is in heaven."
(Yourself, your family, your church)
A brief look at the text: (Ephesians 3:20-21)
When you pray for your church remember:
1. Jesus is able to do anything
2. Jesus can do something that is beyond all you ask or think.
3. Jesus' power to the church is the Holy Spirit.
4. Jesus is to receive all glory in the church.
