Here are the last 2 prayer maxims from Mark Batterson that I will share:
100% of the prayers you DON’T pray WON’T get answered.
Reminds me of one of my favorite verses from James: “You do not have because you do not ask God” (4:2). Perhaps the biggest reason that God does not do “immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” is because we do not ask Him to.
God honors BOLD PRAYERS because BOLD PRAYERS honor God.
It’s time to quit with the namby pamby praying and start asking God to do something significant in your life and in our church. Question: What are the bold prayers that you are praying for yourself and your family? What are the bold prayers that you are praying for your church?
Enough said! Feel free to ask me what I am praying for our church – you might be surprised.
