PRAYER SERMON OUTLINES

by Jerry Vines

Evidently the American people believe in prayer. A recent poll taken by the National Opinion Research Center in Chicago discovered these rather interesting facts. They discovered that 60% of the American people pray at least one time every day. They also discovered that 78% of the American people pray at least one time a week. They also found that only…

A young boy was observed by a minister in church praying very fervently; but much to the preacher's surprise, he was also heard to say from time to time: "Tokyo, Tokyo, Tokyo." So preacher approached the boy after he had apparently finished his prayer and said, "Son, I was very pleased to see you praying so devoutly, but tell me, why did you keep…

Turn to Luke chapter eighteen and verse one. Luke chapter eighteen and verse one. I want us to think on this subject, IT'S FORCE, IT'S COURSE AND IT'S SOURCE. (I believe that Christians fail more in the prayer life than in any other area and I believe dear friend, I don't have a failure and you don't have a failure in other areas that is not really somehow...

I hope you have your Bible handy. We're going to let God talk to us--through His Word about how we can talk to Him--through prayer. So, open your Bible to Luke, the eleventh chapter. Keep it open there for awhile and we'll study some things Jesus said about prayer. Verse one tells us how the subject of prayer came up: "One day Jesus was praying in…

Throughout the centuries, there have been many great revivals and moves of God. Yet, we always see before each great move of God, there was always a move to prayer. The Lord will raise up such to begin to intercede and seek after Him. Right now men and women of God are being called to begin to pray and seek His face. There is an expectancy in my...

When I think of great men of prayer, men who accomplished great things for God, I think of Elijah. Here is a man who called down fire from heaven, brought a widow's son back to life, ran faster than a horse, traveled 40 days and 40 nights on the strength of one meal. When he came to the widow's house he told her to feed him and when she did, here jar…

Notice (vs.5a), "Let your moderation be known unto all men." The Greek word for "moderation" in this particular verse means "seemly, or fitting." It has to do with what is appropriate--doing the right thing. In other places the word means "gentleness, forbearance or reasonableness." But here, it has more to do with behavior. Paul gives us two reasons…

We're beginning a new series entitled "Praying Down Revival." Some people think revival is scheduling a day on the calendar and calling it revival. That's not Biblical revival. You can schedule a day and have a meeting, but you can't schedule a day for God to visit you. When revival comes, God's people are renewed, they're refreshed, they're restored…

Percy Ray was a Pastor in rural Mississippi. He was known by many as God's spoiled child. It was said that he got everything he asked for in prayer. Gift of Land - Once he was praying for land for a new Church, they had no money. He was led by God to go to a field and dig a footing for a new Church. He said, ''God we don't own that field'' But...

Montezuma was the emperor of the Aztec state from 1502 to 1520. The Aztecs were rich sophisticated and predatory. The empire included an estimated 5 million people. In 1519 a party of Spanish conquistadors coming from Cuba under the command of Hernando Cortes landed on the Mexican Gulf coast with 600 men, seventeen…

If you have your Bible, please turn to Ruth chapter 3; Ruth in the Old Testament. Joshua, Judges, Ruth, just a little book - four chapters, right before 1st Samuel, which is a much bigger book. We've been going through the Book of Ruth, and we're in chapter 3 today. We're calling this series, Beauty for Ashes. Ruth is a beautiful story about...

And he said to them, ''Suppose one of you has a friend, and you go to him at midnight and say to him, `Friend, lend me three loaves of bread; for a friend of mine has arrived, and I have nothing to set before him.' And he answers from within, `Do not bother me; the door has already been locked, and my children are with...

Recently we spoke on the subject of REAL REVIVAL and the Walk With God. We took for our thought the word about Enoch. "Enoch walked with God." We took for our text Mark, the 11th chapter, where Peter said, "Master, the fig tree which Thou cursedst is withered away." And Jesus said, "I didn't do that just for your...

by Jerry Watts

It still rings in my mind: One of our godly men came in from visitation beaming, ''John just prayed to received Christ.'' Certainly, even the angels in heaven rejoice when a lost soul finds their way to the foot of the cross, repents of their sin, believes in Jesus, and follows Him by faith with their trust and with their life. When I reflect on...

This morning as we close the book of Ephesians we do so by examining the topic of prayer, which is one topic I believe there to be considerable confusion about in and outside the church. I myself am always confused when I hear non-Christians talk about prayer. You know how whenever there is some national tragedy you always...

M. L. Jones said in one of his sermons, "Man is at his greatest and highest when on his knees he comes face to face with God." In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus focused in on three areas of Jewish life: giving, fasting, and praying. In Matthew 6:5-13, Jesus set for all time the vital nature of prayer for...

As we take a closer look at this passage, I believe we will see that James primarily deals with spiritual and emotional well-being, not physical well-being. The passage has to do with a refreshing rain of Heaven falling on a dry and barren soul, bringing new life and hope.James magnifies the need to be a confessing...

12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves.13 And He said to them, ''It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of...

Our Heavenly Father, as we bow in this moment, enable us to worship. Father, we find increasingly the most difficult thing we know how to do in the Christian life is to know how to worship, to know how just to be still in your presence and know that you are God. Father, I pray that during these days together, in a very new and...

A. Opening Illustration: ''He prayed for strength that he might achieve. He was made weak that he might obey. He prayed for health that he might do great things. He was given infirmity that he might do better things. He prayed for riches that he might be happy. He was given poverty that he might be wise. He prayed for power that he...
