The Value of Prayer - Part 2 (2 of 2)
Last week we entered the study of the second value of Abiding in Christ which is the value of prayer.
We learned that the source of power for each believer and every church comes through the practice and discipline of prayer.
Lets review by turning to John 15:7 this morning.
7 "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.

God is answering the prayers of those that are abiding in Christ through His Word. The most likely reason is that if the Word of God is in our hearts we are going to be asking the right things.

That is the reason we learn together and pray together ... so that we can grow up and mature in Christ together.
Acts 2:42 (NASB95)

We also learned that God is looking for intercessors in order to perform His will. Lets turn to Ezekiel 22:30-31 together.

30Busqué entre ellos alguno que levantara un muro y se pusiera en pie en la brecha delante de mí a favor de la tierra, para que yo no la destruyera, pe ...
