A = adore, C = confession, T = thanksgiving, S = supplication. Prayer is in itself, apart from the answer which it brings, a great benefit to the Christian. Much of his time he spent literally prostrated with his Bible open before him pleading the promise...The scars on his bedroom floor testify to this fact. May we see your beauty, feel your love, know your wisdom and experience your power. For you are giving thanks well enough, but the other person is not edified.” and in verse 26 “What is the outcome then, brethren? I will not leave you until I have done what I promised you!’ Then Jacob woke up and thought, ‘Surely the Lord is in this place, but I did not realize it!’ He was afraid and said, ‘What an awesome place this is! "As the hart panteth after the water-brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God" (Psa 42:1). As a rule decades elapse between revivals in our cities and rural communities. The missionary leaves by taking ship or plane; the intercessor leaves by shutting the door of his closet. I am delighted with this philosopher’s way of thinking; he has done me a singular honor: by the largeness of his request he shows the high idea he has conceived both of my superior wealth and my royal munificience.’”, We can dishonor God by asking too little. Lu 14:27 “Whosoever doth not bear his own cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.”, Lu 9:23 “And he said unto all, If any man would come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”, Mr 10:21 “And Jesus looking upon him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.”, Php 3:10 “that I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, becoming conformed unto his death;”, Gal 2: 20 “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me: and that life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith which is in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me.”, Every converted sinner is a soul revived to prayer. Jesus further entices them with “you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” 1:8 I suspect that the last phrase “to the end of the earth” just blew their minds, but it didn’t seem to scare them. Sometimes we are rebuffed when God doesn’t quickly answer our prayer. The Holy Spirit Himself intercedes for us, by causing us to intercede; He indites our prayers for us, not in a book, but in our hearts; He shows us our need, He stirs us up to prayer, He supplies us with arguments, puts words into our mouths, enlarges our hearts, makes faith strong in prayer, He enables us to come to God as our Father; and gives us liberty and boldness in His presence. They were like a flock of sheep that will huddle together in a storm, or come closer each to its fellow when they hear the sound of the wolf. The Spirit's work is to blast to pieces the sinner's hardness of heart and his frivolous opposition to God. Our prayer must be addressed to God alone Who is our Father in creation, election, and sanctifying grace. Christ’s resurrection and ascension was followed by prayer: Acts 1:8-14 “...but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth. We cannot anticipate specific needs and situations. All persons can be grouped into one of three groups: 1. Another term to describe this kind of action is “pro-active.” “Prevenient praying” then, is to go before and prepare the way by praying. And do the wishes of my heart, go with the words I say? B. Johnston. Bill Bright gives the following story in Changing the World Through Prayer, leaders guide p 22. Making excuses for not kneeling is dangerous. 1664; Charles F. Gounod, 1872; Tr. We should look to Him as the one that gives us all things: life itself, substance for life, guidance in life, etc. The application of this principle to a praying church is both individual and corporate. The resulting revival becomes, therefore, nothing but a little display of fireworks! We speak of you to others in response to your great love for us. We may be certain that whatever God has made prominent in His Word, He intended to be conspicuous in our lives. When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. O! The word “comforter” means “a helper, succourer, aider, assistant” There isn’t any place where we need help more than in the place of prayer. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.”, 4. Those things that He will do for us, both that which we will not ask for and that which we will ask for. We do not fill ourselves. Let all things be done for edification.” The thrust of Paul’s teaching is that when someone speaks, sings, or prays it must be with understanding so others can participate and agree and say “Amen” which means “so be it.”, It is normal that not every one gets to pray audibly in the prayer meeting. God deserves praise, for he did not reject my prayer or abandon his love for me!” Ps 66:18-20. “What we cannot obtain by solitary prayer we may by social...because where our individual strength fails, there union and concord are effectual.” Chrysostom 400 AD, Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 “Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. There is a kind of divine force comes upon us sometimes at the prayer-meeting. For us to advocate that we have the manifest presence of God in our church services and not first and fundamentally have it in our secret prayer lives is classic hypocrisy. Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? The way to know, see, hear, and desire is to ask. Yes, for 100 years! “They have no wine” She states the problem. “And bring us not into temptation.” A genuine Christian does not want to sin; he knows that he is weak in himself and cannot keep himself from sin. For God to raise up nationals to evangelize their own people. 1. The logic of submission is simply God's wisdom. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.”  There is a horizontal love between the children. And that is this: we may then be said to "pray without ceasing" when we keep our hearts in such a frame, as that we are fit at all times to pour out our souls before God in prayer. So I will turn toward you and make you fruitful and multiply you, and I will confirm My covenant with you.” A ratio of effectiveness of 1/20 increases to 1/100 by an increase in corporate size. This is especially true in the exercise of prayer. When, on the other hand, the awakening has subsided, and everyday conditions, perhaps even dry seasons, return, then most of us lose our zeal and cease our activity. Starters for the Prayer Meeting Related Media. The Scriptures teach us to pray for missionaries. All 59 occurrences refer to a verbal and sometimes an unpleasant outcry. Answer to Inoculation: Personal experience of the God. Act 12:1-25 tells of how Peter was put in prison,  “4 When he had seized him, he put him in prison, delivering him to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out before the people. Of the universe when all things will be burnt up. 3. Luk 13:24 “Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able.” Jesus preached a different Gospel than what is commonly preached today. So why ask at all? The only time this idea is used is in Eph 5:19-20 “always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father.” Here Paul is giving directions as to how the Ephesian church should conduct itself. My recollection had been accurate. 2. Lord, we are meeting today to conduct matters of business. This is not where our praying is done in proxy by “the priest,” we are all priests, we all must pray. And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens.”, 6. Let’s not forget that we are praying to a tri-person God. He lays special burdens of prayer on the believer who is walking in fellowship with Him. This is a complete misunderstanding. In v 4 the Lord begins this dialogue. “For this reason we also, from the day we heard, have not ceased praying for you and” Col 1:9-12, “asking God to fill you with the knowledge” Paul is praying for a completion and perfecting of that which God has begun in them. But I shall speak more to this under the second head; and therefore in the meantime, that which is not petitioned through the teaching and assistance of the Spirit, it is not possible that it should be "according to the will of God (Rom 8:26,27). We should verbalize this as Jesus did, we should express our love for our God and our desire to be completely committed to Him in everything and ask for His help to live such a life. Our Lord tells us, if we keep on asking, seeking, and knocking “it will be opened.”. In all these instances, and in hundreds more that might be named, you may see that prayer carrieth in it a sensible feeling disposition, and that first from a sense of sin. I couldn’t wait to see Mark in Warsaw. There is a similar experience in agonizing prayer. Because God has designed that the missionary on the field not do his work alone. The first thing we should talk about in prayer is God Himself. A congregation without a prayer meeting is essentially defective in its organization, and so must be limited in its efficiency. And, thus, Exod. That town never witnessed before or since such wonderful displays of the presence and love of God in salvation of immortal souls. The Prayer Meeting and Its History, J. Next to Payson's bed where deep grooves in the hardwood floor were his knees had pressed repeatedly in times of travail. In the OT it was the tabernacle or temple, in the NT it is the church. By “spirit” we mean, the spiritual attitude in which we should pray. Col 4:3,4 “Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. We shall find Him when we seek with all our hearts. The Lord was high and lifted up, the incomparable One. The true suppliant gathers force as he proceeds, and grows more fervent when God delays to answer. My God, forbid! Unanswered yet? Horizontally -- Forgiveness toward man. Why pray for a good attendance at church Sunday when we can pray for a great ingathering of souls across our nation. The Colossians - to know God’’s will. v 17. And this I take to be the most genuine, natural sense of the words, and the true scope of the Apostle here; to have the habit of prayer, inclining them always freely and sweetly to breathe out their requests unto God, and to take all occasions to prostrate themselves before his throne of grace. Our Lord’s lesson on “Praying” included three things: 1. an outline for the contents of prayer in verses 2-4, 2. the need for persistence, in verses 5-10, and 3. encouragement that the Father will give us the one thing needed in verses 11-13. God will give the wisdom and provisions, that is not to concern us. How could we look for a Pentecost if we never met with one accord, in one place, to wait upon the Lord? So that I say, as the Spirit is the helper and the governor of the soul, when it prayeth according to the will of God; so it guideth by and according to, the Word of God and his promise. We live for you, in every thought, word and deed, by the power of your Spirit. You can use any notebook, journal, planner, or a sheet of paper to get started. Because of the nature of missionary activity. 2 Chr 7: 11-14, History confirms the truth that wherever evangelical and vital religion flourish, there lives the earnest gatherings for social prayer. What Should Be the Great Object of the Prayer-meeting. Year-end $3 Million Matching Challenge. 2. <>It promotes humility. 1 Thes 2:12. Now I have chosen and consecrated this temple by making it my permanent home; I will be constantly present there.” Here God is making prayer especially important and associating it with His presence. Then in 1987, perestroika began and Russia’s Communist government crumbled. “They were all with one accord in one place,” making their prayer, and, as they waited there, suddenly they heard the sound as of a rushing, mighty wind, and the cloven tongues descended upon them, and they were clothed with the power which Jesus had promised them. Each of us has the cancer of sin within us. He had James, the brother of John, executed with a sword. Less of prayer, more of self; more of prayer, more of God. So, also, in the parable of the unjust steward, which our Saviour spake on purpose to show how prevalent with God importunity is, Luke 18:1, it is said, that the Lord would teach them that they “ought always to pray:'' that is, that they ought to pray earnestly and importunity is not giving over till they were heard. Not the confession of sin, for Jesus never sinned and could not sin. Remember that people are quite busy and may not be able to make certain times for a prayer meeting. ““If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”” John 16:7 I will not ask His presence and aid in the hour of death. Note that- the first thing Paul does is acknowledge the Lordship of Jesus Christ. He told me exactly where to go and what to pray about. He would not be God if He did not possess all and unlimited power. 5. But, the more that died, the more that volunteered to go to replace them. God’s children are to ask for the Holy Spirit; they are to receive Him and God is sure to give Him when we ask persistently. We pray by means of the Spirit’s power within.“through (dia) him Spirit”. Effective prayer requires that we have a valid relationship vertically and horizontally. Our Lord immediately answered that prayer in the following verses. The prayer-meeting has this fifth use, that it is the means of suggesting missionary operations. 4. When we send our hearts on an errand to Heaven, how often do they loiter and play by the way? We can claim the Fatherhood of God but our praying will be fruitless if we don’t ground our praying in a second foundation. A laborer is a laborer regardless of where he is laboring. If He has said much about prayer, it is because He knows we have much need of it. . It expresses destitution and inadequacy, inability to meet one’s own needs, and total dependence on another. Fulfilling the great commission “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have you.” (Mat 28:19,20) is our great responsibility. So Joshua destroyed Malek and his army with the edge of the sword.” When the intercessor’s hands fall, Malek prevails on the mission field. It is need expressed in a cry... a definite need keenly felt.” (Prayer Power Unlimited, J. Oswald Sanders, p 29), 2. “The prayer of a righteous person has great effectiveness. An earnest pleader cometh out of his closet, even as the sun ariseth from the chambers of the east, rejoicing like a strong man to run his race. Paul was very desirous for the Christians to pray for him. “If a man see his brother sin . Then he poured oil on top of it. Jesus rebukes the religious leaders for misusing God’s house. Things looked bad, the execution of James, the arrest of Peter and under heavy guard, the cruelty of Herod, the hatred of the Jews, but it is simply a matter of God having them where He wants them for His purpose. It is a very useful thing for Christians to pray with each other, even apart from the answer. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. “In the third place, the Spirit teaches us the necessity of self-denial in connection with prayer.There is something about prayer and intercession which calls for more self-denial than any other work to which the Spirit calls us. Paul encourages us to expect answers to our praying by saying that God “is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think.” If He can do above what we ask of think then certainly He can do what we ask or think. “It was thought that in the course of that summer there were so many as sixteen hundred souls converted in Sussex circuit; in Brunswick circuit about eighteen hundred; and in Amelia circuit about eight hundred. A sense of the want of mercy, by reason of the danger of sin. You say that such a thing is absolutely out of the question nowadays; that it is unthinkable and you begin to enumerate the awful consequences following such a supposed suspension of business. Jesus said nothing like this. "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile." I fear that much of our prayer is lost because we do not sufficiently throw our hearts into it. 6 They cried out to the Lord in their distress; he delivered them from their troubles. The Christian family in American has the same number of TVs and the same designer cloths as anyone else. This is what abiding in Christ is, living in obedience and communing with our God. On the other hand, shameless persistence, the importunity that will not be denied, returns with the answer in its hands...There may be other reasons why the divine response tarries and importunity is needed... 1. It was often the case that the people in their corn-fields, white people, or black, and sometimes both together, would begin to sing, and being affected would begin to pray, and others would join with them, and they would continue their cries till some of them would find peace to their souls.”. A sensible thanksgiving, for mercies received, is a mighty prayer in the sight of God; it prevails with him unspeakably. A = adore, C = confession, T = thanksgiving, S = supplication. Note that Spurgeon agrees with the Wesleyan brother that the “Prayer-meeting” was that which “accounted for the success of the ministry.” Maybe Spurgeon could give us some advice about conducting the prayer-meeting. Part of the exercise of prayer is sincerity, without which God looks not upon it as prayer in a good sense (Psa 16:1-4). In Matt 6:5,6 Jesus give us instruction in praying, “When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. What we need more than anything else today in our own land and in all lands, is a real, mighty outpouring of the Spirit of God. And so again, "And being in an agony, he prayed more earnestly" (Luke 22:44). It is not a matter of “If we have sinned, we should confess.” The Bible tells us plainly that we have sinned and we are to confess it. In Eph 2:16 we have another “but,” the Divine “but” of our salvation that “And although you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you formerly lived according to this world’s present path, according to the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the ruler of the spirit that is now energizing the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom all of us also formerly lived out our lives in the cravings of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath even as the rest… 4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of his great love with which he loved us, 5 even though we were dead in transgressions, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you are saved!— 6 and he raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus.” We were lost , dead, hopless, worthless–“but God.” This made all the difference. Mr. Spurgeon once wrote in “The Sword and the Trowel”:--“A Wesleyan minister lately said that he was never more surprised in his life than when he dropped into the Tabernacle, and found the ground-floor and part of the gallery filled at a Prayer-meeting. Two weeks after the revival, twenty-four men and twenty-four women of the community covenanted together to spend one hour each day, day and night, in prayer to God for His blessing on the congregation and its witness. Bold or “unreserved & direct speaking” in our praying is necessary for effectual praying. And, "remember thy word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope" (ver 49). God honored Daniel’s faithfulness to the Word. Acts 1:14 “All these continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.” Jesus’ last instruction to the disciples was “not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father...you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” Ac 1:5 We can’t be sure of what they understood “ baptized with” to mean but obviously they were willing for it. And make them conquerors, conquering Lord, A Member of the China Inland Mission, Hudson Taylor’s Spiritual Secret, p 251, Mat 8:2,3 “And a leper approached, and bowed low before him, saying, ‘Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.’ 3 He stretched out his hand and touched him saying, ‘I am willing. “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” Rom 8:11 26 “In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.” Rom 8:26. Isa 12:4 “And in that day shall ye say, Give thanks unto Jehovah, call upon his name, declare his doings among the peoples, make mention that his name is exalted.” Eph 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ:”. In the prayer meeting, as nowhere else, are Christian graces thus brought together with powerful reactionary and reflective forces. Jesus knew the problem and that was enough. Give us clear minds and peaceful hearts as we gather together. Ac 1:14 “All these continued together in prayer with one mind, together with the women, along with Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.” The first occurrence of our word is pre-pentecost and in preparation of pentecost. . As we come together we should consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds. Jesus taught us to “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” Mt 22:37 To be any less is not fitting for the God of Omnipotent power and Infinite Glory. As Daniel read, he noticed that Jeremiah predicted that the Israelites would be in captivity for seventy years. 5. Ma 9:37, 38 “Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Just as each organ in a physical body performs its function, so each believer fulfills his responsibility and joins in prayer as they commune with God. It is to commission labors by means of prayer “While they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said,‘‘Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ Then, when they had fasted and prayed and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.” Acts 13:2,3 The church is to requisition all the supplies necessary to keep the kingdom functioning and advancing. All true prayer is exercised in the sphere of the Holy Spirit, motivated and empowered by Him. If the younger and less-instructed members shrink from the privilege, tell them they are not to speak to man, but to God. His strength came from the relationship that he had with His Father. In the deep desolation of their spirits they resorted to prayer. Eph 3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, that ye may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inward man; 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; to the end that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be strong to apprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,19 and to know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge, that ye may be filled unto all the fulness of God. 3. Sometimes an army will make a “pre-emptive strike” to get the advantage over the enemy. 2. If there isn’t a gale blowing in the sails, we will tug at the oars but heartlessly and with little result. We are to thank God for revealing Himself to us sinful creatures. But you have turned it into a den of robbers!’ 18 The chief priests and the experts in the law heard it and they considered how they could assassinate him, for they feared him because the whole crowd was amazed by his teaching. Christ’s resurrection was necessary so He could continue His work. Mat 6.6 “But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”. It is of chief concern to the child of God that the honor of the Father be upheld. “And of which of you that is a father shall his son ask a loaf, and he give him a stone? Give us day by day our daily bread. “Our brethren will excuse our offering them advice, and must take it only for what it is worth; but having to superintend a large church and to conduct a prayer-meeting which scarcely numbers less than from a thousand to twelve hundred attendants, we will simply give our own notions as to the most efficient method of promoting and sustaining these holy gatherings. “There is a power in conferring and covenanting, on the part of kindred spirits, to come before God, and plead together some special promise.” The Prayer Meeting and Its History, J. Topical Prayer: The Persons of God; 5. The act of “crying”, is caused by the Holy Spirit though realized in the believers vocal praying. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen. When the saints therefore do pray with submission to the will of God, it doth not argue that they are to doubt or question God's love and kindness to them. 9. This was true of John Newton, the converted slave trader. Hear one brother after another pour out the dull, monotonous prayer that he has said by heart these fifty years; and then go away and say: ‘Where is the spirit of prayer, where the life of devotion?’ Is it not almost extinct? The noun form of this word, parakletos, is used to refer to the Holy Spirit, the comforter or the one that comes along side to help and strengthen. So Moses said to Joshua, “Choose some of our men and go out, fight against Amalek. The man then who refuses or neglects to pray, who regards prayer not as a privilege, but as a wearisome and needless task practically says in the most unequivocal manner, I am not dependent on God; I want nothing that He can give; and therefore I will not come to Him, nor ask anything from His hand. Ac 14:22,23 “Strengthening the souls of the disciples, encouraging them to continue in the faith, and saying, Through many tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God. <> The Moravian community was moved to repentance for its divisions, and on August 13, 1727 they experienced a powerful outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
