The Way of Jesus (Part 9): I am Called to PRAY
Praying for OURs not MYs
Pastor Andrew Ruth
March 8, 2015
Celebrate God's goodness. Make much of God. Point out what he has done well, beautifully, creatively, redemptively, and lovingly.
Acknowledge failures - when I did what I should not or did not do what I should. Decide to take real steps to fight such habitual sin.
Ask [for others]
Pray for others. The sick, the poor, the victimized, the Church, your enemies, your neighbors, marriages, children, teachers, governments, etc.
Lastly remember yourself. Pour out your heart to God and trust that he cares. Remember not to pray for yourself, things you cannot also pray in good conscious for others. "OUR daily bread." "forgive OUR debts." "Lead US not into temptation."
