SERMON NOTES

-How many of us would say that we are currently in a/that season of not praying?
 
-1 Thessalonians 5:17-"Pray continually."
-We don't know how to pray because we either don't know the promises God has made to us, have forgotten the promises God has made to us, or we don't believe the promises God has made to us.
 
-God promises He:

-2 Chronicles 20:1-17 - Jehoshaphat Defeats Moab and Ammon (Jehoshaphat was king of Judah)
-Too often, it takes troubles, hardships, opposition, to bring us to our knees before the Lord. And then we think that God is against us...it may be the proof that God is for us.
-"O Lord, God of our fathers, are You not the God who is in heaven?"-v6
-"O our God, did You not drive out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Israel and give it forever to the descendants of Abraham Your friend?"-v7
-"O our God, will You not judge them?"-v12
 
-Typically, we pray our biggest prayers in life, when that which stands before us is bigger than we are. It's easy to lose heart, when you don't know the promises of God.
-What stands before you today, that seems unbearable? That is bigger than you?
