Antidote to a Boring Prayer Life
|John 16 (NKJV™)|
|23||"And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you.|
|24||"Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.|
|25||"These things I have spoken to you in figurative language; but the time is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figurative language, but I will tell you plainly about the Father.|
|26||"In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for you;|
|27||"for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from God.|
|28||"I came forth from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father."|
|29||His disciples said to Him, "See, now You are speaking plainly, and using no figure of speech!|
|30||"Now we are sure that You know all things, and have no need that anyone should question You. By this we believe that You came forth from God."|

A seven-year-old boy went to Sunday school and after the prayer time remarked, "Can we hurry up? This is boring!" The little girl to his left gave him a sharp jab with her bony elbow and rebuked him, saying, "Shut up! It's supposed to be boring!" Unfortunately most folks think that about spiritual things and especially about prayer. That's a far cry from how Jesus described it and how the early church practiced it. Let’s take a glimpse.
The Upper Room Discourse was Jesus' final message to His closest followers before He went to the cross. After washing their feet and giving them the example of how to love and serve one another, He taught what it really means to be His disciples. Pastor Skip Heitzig teaches how we can learn to face situations similar to those encountered by Jesus' disciples.
