Parables on Prayer
7 March 2021 AM – Luke 11:1-13 – Parables21 – Scott Childs
Introduction: Years ago, E. M. Bounds wrote, “What the Church needs today is not more machinery or better, not new organizations or more novel methods, but men whom the Holy Ghost can use—men of prayer, men mighty in prayer.” An unknown person said, “Nothing lies outside the reach of prayer, except that which lies outside the will of God.”
Like Jesus’ disciples, we need to ask, “Lord, teach us to pray!”
Transition: In this section, Jesus used a pattern and two parables to teach us principles that we need to know about prayer.
