  • He can't devour everybody, but

  • he's seeking whom he can devour.
  • 00:03:39.080 --> 00:03:41.060
  • Well, who can he devour?
  • 00:03:41.060 --> 00:03:42.170

  • lack of knowledge.

  • 00:04:02.170 --> 00:04:03.240
  • The devil is looking for a way
  • 00:04:03.240 --> 00:04:05.220
  • in to destroy our lives.
  • 00:04:05.220 --> 00:04:08.210
  • Jesus said, "The thief comes to

  • people.
  • 00:04:18.070 --> 00:04:19.230
  • We love people.

  • We pray for people.
  • 00:04:21.050 --> 00:04:22.000
  • We want people to get saved.
  • 00:04:22.000 --> 00:04:23.090
  • There's not any one person we

  • We want 'em to be blessed.
  • 00:04:28.040 --> 00:04:29.200
  • If their marriage is struggling,
  • 00:04:29.200 --> 00:04:31.020
  • we want their marriage restored.

  • You say, "Oh, I got a few I'm
  • 00:04:33.000 --> 00:04:34.100
  • not gonna really go that far."
  • 00:04:34.100 --> 00:04:36.150
  • No, every person.
  • 00:04:36.150 --> 00:04:38.140
  • I don't know of anybody on the
  • 00:04:38.140 --> 00:04:39.270
  • earth that I don't want God
  • 00:04:39.270 --> 00:04:42.060
  • blessing, helping, healing,

  • prospering their life.
  • 00:04:44.230 --> 00:04:46.210
  • They're not our problem.
  • 00:04:46.210 --> 00:04:48.000
  • People aren't our problem.
  • 00:04:48.000 --> 00:04:49.250
  • You say, "Oh Yeah?
  • 00:04:49.250 --> 00:04:50.150
  • I got a few of them on the
  • 00:04:50.150 --> 00:04:51.050
  • freeway.
  • 00:04:51.050 --> 00:04:51.260
  • They're my problem, all right.
  • 00:04:51.260 --> 00:04:53.260
  • I'm sitting next to one in my
  • 00:04:53.260 --> 00:04:55.030
  • office.
  • 00:04:55.030 --> 00:04:55.280
  • That's my problem right over
  • 00:04:55.280 --> 00:04:57.020
  • there.
  • 00:04:57.020 --> 00:04:57.290
  • I'm happy when they don't show
  • 00:04:57.290 --> 00:04:59.070
  • up for work."
  • 00:04:59.070 --> 00:05:00.170
  • Oh, you got your eyes on the
  • 00:05:00.170 --> 00:05:01.270
  • wrong thing 'cause there's
  • 00:05:01.270 --> 00:05:03.180
  • always gonna be people that the
  • 00:05:03.180 --> 00:05:05.190
  • enemy could use.
  • 00:05:05.190 --> 00:05:07.290
  • There's always gonna be people
  • 00:05:07.290 --> 00:05:10.000
  • that might have a bad spirit or
  • 00:05:10.000 --> 00:05:12.030
  • might be involved with bad
  • 00:05:12.030 --> 00:05:13.250
  • things.
  • 00:05:13.250 --> 00:05:14.260
  • And yet, if you get your eyes on
  • 00:05:14.260 --> 00:05:17.000
  • people, you miss what the Lord
  • 00:05:17.040 --> 00:05:20.040
  • might be trying to do in your
  • 00:05:20.040 --> 00:05:21.260
  • life.
  • 00:05:21.260 --> 00:05:23.000
  • So he said, "Deliver us from
  • 00:05:23.000 --> 00:05:25.010
  • evil," from the evil one, not
  • 00:05:26.050 --> 00:05:29.050
  • from people.
  • 00:05:29.050 --> 00:05:30.100
  • I remember one guy was so upset.
  • 00:05:30.130 --> 00:05:33.130
  • He was angry at everybody.
  • 00:05:33.130 --> 00:05:34.150
  • "I hate people.
  • 00:05:34.150 --> 00:05:35.150
  • People driving me crazy."
  • 00:05:35.150 --> 00:05:37.030
  • He was just going on and on
  • 00:05:37.030 --> 00:05:38.100
  • about how bad people were.
  • 00:05:38.100 --> 00:05:40.000
  • And I said, "Bro, have you ever
  • 00:05:40.000 --> 00:05:41.260
  • stopped to think you're a
  • 00:05:41.260 --> 00:05:43.160
  • people?"
  • 00:05:43.160 --> 00:05:46.100
  • Right?
  • 00:05:46.100 --> 00:05:46.290
  • You start hating all people,
  • 00:05:46.290 --> 00:05:48.000
  • you're gonna hate yourself,
  • 00:05:48.000 --> 00:05:50.040
  • right?
  • 00:05:50.040 --> 00:05:50.200
  • So remember who your enemy is.
  • 00:05:50.200 --> 00:05:53.050
  • Remember who the real problem is
  • 00:05:53.050 --> 00:05:54.270
  • here.
  • 00:05:54.270 --> 00:05:55.190
  • Satan comes to kill, and steal,
  • 00:05:55.190 --> 00:05:58.010
  • and destroy.
  • 00:05:58.010 --> 00:05:59.110
  • Look at Ephesians chapter 6.
  • 00:05:59.110 --> 00:06:02.120
  • The Bible said, "We do not
  • 00:06:08.280 --> 00:06:10.110
  • wrestle against flesh and blood,
  • 00:06:10.160 --> 00:06:13.160
  • but against principalities and
  • 00:06:13.160 --> 00:06:15.060
  • powers, rulers of the darkness
  • 00:06:15.060 --> 00:06:17.150
  • of this age, spiritual
  • 00:06:17.150 --> 00:06:19.150
  • wickedness in heavenly places."
  • 00:06:20.030 --> 00:06:23.030
  • Don't wrestle with people.
  • 00:06:23.030 --> 00:06:25.140
  • "Well, I'll tell you, my problem
  • 00:06:25.140 --> 00:06:26.120
  • is my mother-in-law."
  • 00:06:26.120 --> 00:06:28.140
  • Come on man, you gotta get
  • 00:06:28.140 --> 00:06:30.000
  • smarter than that.
  • 00:06:30.000 --> 00:06:32.050
  • Every time my father-in-law
  • 00:06:32.050 --> 00:06:33.100
  • comes over, the whole house goes
  • 00:06:33.100 --> 00:06:35.110
  • dark.
  • 00:06:35.110 --> 00:06:36.230
  • It's not the father-in-law,
  • 00:06:36.230 --> 00:06:39.140
  • right?
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:40.050
  • We get our eyes on the wrong
  • 00:06:40.050 --> 00:06:40.240
  • thing.
  • 00:06:40.240 --> 00:06:42.020
  • "Well, I was happy until that
  • 00:06:42.020 --> 00:06:43.130
  • person cut me off on the
  • 00:06:43.130 --> 00:06:44.190
  • freeway.
  • 00:06:44.190 --> 00:06:45.120
  • They ruined my day."
  • 00:06:45.120 --> 00:06:46.290
  • Yeah, and then you flipped them
  • 00:06:46.290 --> 00:06:48.110
  • off, and then they pulled in
  • 00:06:48.110 --> 00:06:49.190
  • front of you, and then they hit
  • 00:06:49.190 --> 00:06:50.280
  • the brakes, and then you hit the
  • 00:06:50.280 --> 00:06:52.000
  • brakes, then all the drama and
  • 00:06:52.000 --> 00:06:53.160
  • the trauma because you thought
  • 00:06:53.160 --> 00:06:55.280
  • they were the problem.
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:57.290
  • You didn't realize it's simply
  • 00:06:57.290 --> 00:06:59.070
  • the enemy tryin' to get you off
  • 00:06:59.070 --> 00:07:01.060
  • track, the enemy tryin' to get
  • 00:07:01.060 --> 00:07:03.140
  • you filled with bitterness.
  • 00:07:03.140 --> 00:07:05.050
  • It's the enemy tryin' to get you
  • 00:07:05.050 --> 00:07:06.210
  • into a bad spirit.
  • 00:07:06.210 --> 00:07:08.200
  • You need to keep your eyes on
  • 00:07:08.200 --> 00:07:09.290
  • the Lord and say, "Thank you,
  • 00:07:09.290 --> 00:07:11.130
  • Lord.
  • 00:07:11.130 --> 00:07:12.130
  • You deliver me from the evil
  • 00:07:12.130 --> 00:07:14.130
  • one."
  • 00:07:14.130 --> 00:07:17.070
  • Don't wrestle.
  • 00:07:17.070 --> 00:07:19.100
  • Don't wrestle against flesh and
  • 00:07:19.100 --> 00:07:20.150
  • blood.
  • 00:07:20.150 --> 00:07:22.000
  • There will always be people that
  • 00:07:22.000 --> 00:07:23.280
  • the enemy uses, but we know who
  • 00:07:24.200 --> 00:07:27.200
  • our real enemy is.
  • 00:07:27.230 --> 00:07:30.230
  • Let me give you a couple other
  • 00:07:30.230 --> 00:07:31.240
  • Scriptures so you can pray this
  • 00:07:31.240 --> 00:07:33.260
  • prayer like the Lord did,
  • 00:07:33.260 --> 00:07:35.250
  • "Deliver us from evil."
  • 00:07:35.250 --> 00:07:38.060
  • Isaiah 59, and verse 19, "When
  • 00:07:39.140 --> 00:07:42.140
  • the enemy comes in like a flood,
  • 00:07:42.230 --> 00:07:45.230
  • the Spirit of the Lord will lift
  • 00:07:45.230 --> 00:07:47.190
  • up a standard against him."
  • 00:07:47.190 --> 00:07:50.190
  • You've had one of those days,
  • 00:07:50.190 --> 00:07:51.250
  • right?
  • 00:07:51.250 --> 00:07:52.160
  • The enemy comes in like a flood.
  • 00:07:52.160 --> 00:07:54.140
  • Boy, somebody didn't show up for
  • 00:07:54.140 --> 00:07:55.210
  • work.
  • 00:07:55.210 --> 00:07:56.150
  • You're having to cover their
  • 00:07:56.150 --> 00:07:57.210
  • responsibility.
  • 00:07:57.210 --> 00:07:59.030
  • And someone else is sick, and
  • 00:07:59.030 --> 00:08:01.090
  • feeling bad, and complaining
  • 00:08:01.090 --> 00:08:02.270
  • about their problem, and then
  • 00:08:02.270 --> 00:08:04.290
  • the boss walks in, and he's got
  • 00:08:04.290 --> 00:08:07.000
  • his normal demon-possessed
  • 00:08:07.000 --> 00:08:08.260
  • attitude, and you know, you
  • 00:08:08.260 --> 00:08:10.210
  • got--seems like the flood is
  • 00:08:10.210 --> 00:08:13.090
  • coming against you.
  • 00:08:13.090 --> 00:08:14.260
  • Yeah, but this is what the Bible
  • 00:08:14.260 --> 00:08:15.220
  • says.
  • 00:08:15.220 --> 00:08:17.100
  • When the enemy comes in like a
  • 00:08:17.100 --> 00:08:18.150
  • flood, the Spirit of the Lord
  • 00:08:18.190 --> 00:08:21.190
  • raises up a standard.
  • 00:08:21.190 --> 00:08:22.240
  • He strengthens you.
  • 00:08:22.240 --> 00:08:24.100
  • He empowers you.
  • 00:08:24.100 --> 00:08:25.220
  • He gives you opportunity.
  • 00:08:25.220 --> 00:08:27.030
  • You're gonna use this day to go
  • 00:08:27.030 --> 00:08:28.210
  • higher, to go farther, to do
  • 00:08:28.210 --> 00:08:30.270
  • more.
  • 00:08:30.270 --> 00:08:31.260
  • This might be the very thing
  • 00:08:31.260 --> 00:08:33.050
  • you've been waiting for to break
  • 00:08:33.050 --> 00:08:34.250
  • through into that new position,
  • 00:08:34.250 --> 00:08:36.120
  • to get that raise, to get that
  • 00:08:36.120 --> 00:08:38.140
  • new opportunity.
  • 00:08:38.140 --> 00:08:39.250
  • Hey, when the enemy comes
  • 00:08:39.250 --> 00:08:41.060
  • against you, the Spirit of the
  • 00:08:41.060 --> 00:08:43.070
  • Lord rises up and it might be
  • 00:08:43.150 --> 00:08:46.150
  • your breakthrough moment.
  • 00:08:46.150 --> 00:08:48.250
  • Keep your attitude, keep your
  • 00:08:48.250 --> 00:08:50.060
  • faith, keep your perspective,
  • 00:08:50.060 --> 00:08:52.230
  • because God may be doing some
  • 00:08:52.230 --> 00:08:54.290
  • amazing things.
  • 00:08:54.290 --> 00:08:57.270
  • I said to you not long ago, when
  • 00:08:57.270 --> 00:09:00.110
  • our church was brand new there
  • 00:09:00.110 --> 00:09:02.050
  • was a book that came out about
  • 00:09:02.050 --> 00:09:04.160
  • Robert Schuller, and it was
  • 00:09:04.160 --> 00:09:06.000
  • about Kenneth Hagin, and Kenneth
  • 00:09:06.000 --> 00:09:08.090
  • Copeland, all these old-time
  • 00:09:08.090 --> 00:09:09.270
  • preachers back in the day.
  • 00:09:09.270 --> 00:09:11.260
  • And they were big.
  • 00:09:11.260 --> 00:09:12.220
  • They were on TV.
  • 00:09:12.220 --> 00:09:13.230
  • Oral Roberts and all these guys.
  • 00:09:13.230 --> 00:09:15.150
  • They were big ministries on TV.
  • 00:09:15.150 --> 00:09:17.240
  • And this guy, he was saying
  • 00:09:17.240 --> 00:09:20.100
  • everything that was wrong with
  • 00:09:20.100 --> 00:09:21.100
  • them, and he put me in the
  • 00:09:21.100 --> 00:09:22.230
  • conversation.
  • 00:09:22.230 --> 00:09:23.240
  • He put Wendy and I in there and
  • 00:09:23.240 --> 00:09:25.090
  • he said, "And these kids up in
  • 00:09:25.090 --> 00:09:27.210
  • Washington, they're part of the
  • 00:09:27.210 --> 00:09:29.050
  • same cult."
  • 00:09:29.050 --> 00:09:30.120
  • Well, nobody knew us until that
  • 00:09:30.120 --> 00:09:31.290
  • book came out.
  • 00:09:31.290 --> 00:09:34.150
  • And at first I was hurt.
  • 00:09:34.150 --> 00:09:36.030
  • I was like, "Oh Lord, they're
  • 00:09:36.030 --> 00:09:37.110
  • gonna think we're bad.
  • 00:09:37.110 --> 00:09:38.110
  • They're gonna hate.
  • 00:09:38.110 --> 00:09:39.060
  • They're gonna believe everything
  • 00:09:39.060 --> 00:09:40.100
  • this guy said.
  • 00:09:40.100 --> 00:09:41.060
  • Oh man, what's gonna happen?"
  • 00:09:41.060 --> 00:09:43.100
  • And then all of a sudden I
  • 00:09:43.100 --> 00:09:44.030
  • realized he just made me famous.
  • 00:09:44.210 --> 00:09:47.210
  • He--Robert Schuller called me
  • 00:09:47.210 --> 00:09:49.260
  • and said, "Hey, I've never met
  • 00:09:49.260 --> 00:09:50.250
  • you, but I see you're in the
  • 00:09:50.250 --> 00:09:51.250
  • book with me.
  • 00:09:51.250 --> 00:09:52.220
  • Would you come and speak for my
  • 00:09:52.220 --> 00:09:53.230
  • church?
  • 00:09:53.230 --> 00:09:55.120
  • I'm in the Crystal Cathedral."
  • 00:09:55.120 --> 00:09:57.010
  • I mean, wow!
  • 00:09:57.010 --> 00:09:59.060
  • Oral Roberts asked me to be on
  • 00:09:59.060 --> 00:10:00.210
  • his board.
  • 00:10:00.210 --> 00:10:01.200
  • He'd never met me before, but
  • 00:10:01.200 --> 00:10:02.280
  • here I am in the book with him.
  • 00:10:02.280 --> 00:10:04.170
  • He thinks I must be cool.
  • 00:10:04.170 --> 00:10:06.050
  • Next thing I know, I'm invited
  • 00:10:06.050 --> 00:10:07.200
  • to be on the board.
  • 00:10:07.200 --> 00:10:09.100
  • And somebody else brought me to
  • 00:10:09.100 --> 00:10:10.210
  • a conference.
  • 00:10:10.210 --> 00:10:11.150
  • And all of a sudden, our church
  • 00:10:11.150 --> 00:10:12.260
  • multiplied.
  • 00:10:12.260 --> 00:10:15.000
  • Because when the enemy comes in
  • 00:10:15.000 --> 00:10:17.000
  • like a flood, the Spirit of the
  • 00:10:17.000 --> 00:10:18.280
  • Lord lifts us up and helps us
  • 00:10:19.180 --> 00:10:22.180
  • Now, if you get hurt, you get
  • 00:10:26.240 --> 00:10:28.090
  • mad, you get down, stop praying,
  • 00:10:28.090 --> 00:10:31.020
  • "Why, God?
  • 00:10:31.020 --> 00:10:31.290
  • Why is this happening to me?"
  • 00:10:31.290 --> 00:10:33.080
  • you're gonna miss your chance.
  • 00:10:33.080 --> 00:10:35.200
  • But you keep your prayer life
  • 00:10:35.200 --> 00:10:36.200
  • strong, Jesus is gonna walk with
  • 00:10:36.200 --> 00:10:38.230
  • you.
  • 00:10:38.230 --> 00:10:39.200
  • He'll deliver you from the evil
  • 00:10:39.200 --> 00:10:41.120
  • one.
  • 00:10:41.120 --> 00:10:43.030
  • Isaiah 54, verse 17, "No weapon
  • 00:10:44.180 --> 00:10:47.180
  • formed against you shall
  • 00:10:47.180 --> 00:10:48.250
  • prosper.
  • 00:10:48.250 --> 00:10:50.180
  • Every tongue that rises against
  • 00:10:50.180 --> 00:10:52.280
  • you in judgment, the Lord will
  • 00:10:52.280 --> 00:10:55.130
  • condemn.
  • 00:10:55.130 --> 00:10:57.080
  • This is the heritage of the
  • 00:10:57.080 --> 00:10:59.000
  • servants of the Lord and their
  • 00:10:59.000 --> 00:11:00.250
  • righteousness is from me, says
  • 00:11:00.250 --> 00:11:03.060
  • the Lord."
  • 00:11:03.060 --> 00:11:04.270
  • You don't gotta clap back.
  • 00:11:04.270 --> 00:11:07.260
  • You don't gotta tweet back.
  • 00:11:07.260 --> 00:11:09.240
  • You don't gotta come back.
  • 00:11:09.240 --> 00:11:11.270
  • Let the Lord do it.
  • 00:11:11.270 --> 00:11:13.200
  • He'll do it better than you ever
  • 00:11:13.200 --> 00:11:15.180
  • could do it.
  • 00:11:15.180 --> 00:11:17.080
  • No weapon formed against you
  • 00:11:17.080 --> 00:11:19.150
  • will prosper and every tongue
  • 00:11:19.150 --> 00:11:22.050
  • that rises in judgment against
  • 00:11:22.050 --> 00:11:23.200
  • you, the Lord will condemn.
  • 00:11:23.200 --> 00:11:26.040
  • Talk to God.
  • 00:11:30.260 --> 00:11:32.130
  • Pray to God.
  • 00:11:32.130 --> 00:11:34.060
  • Trust the Lord.
  • 00:11:34.060 --> 00:11:35.290
  • "Thank you, Father.
  • 00:11:35.290 --> 00:11:37.110
  • You deliver me from the evil
  • 00:11:37.110 --> 00:11:39.120
  • one."
  • 00:11:39.120 --> 00:11:40.210
  • Now, you get in and you start
  • 00:11:40.210 --> 00:11:41.220
  • wrestling with them, you play on
  • 00:11:41.220 --> 00:11:43.280
  • their turf, you play in their
  • 00:11:43.280 --> 00:11:46.060
  • spirit, you become part of that
  • 00:11:46.060 --> 00:11:48.120
  • world, well, win a few, lose a
  • 00:11:49.090 --> 00:11:52.090
  • few.
  • 00:11:52.090 --> 00:11:53.250
  • But you stay connected with God,
  • 00:11:53.250 --> 00:11:55.230
  • you win every time.
  • 00:11:55.230 --> 00:11:57.090
  • You overcome.
  • 00:11:57.090 --> 00:11:58.260
  • You rise above.
  • 00:11:58.260 --> 00:12:00.190
  • He'll take you on.
  • 00:12:00.190 --> 00:12:03.020

  • you're in heaven.

  • I worship you.

  • needs, our daily bread.
  • 00:12:15.280 --> 00:12:18.150
  • Number four, forgive us, Lord,
  • 00:12:18.150 --> 00:12:20.200
  • while we forgive others.
  • 00:12:20.200 --> 00:12:22.170
  • Number five, deliver us from the
  • 00:12:22.170 --> 00:12:25.030

  • And number six, yours is the
  • 00:12:26.060 --> 00:12:28.110
  • kingdom, and the power, and the

  • glory forever, amen.
  • 00:12:33.060 --> 00:12:36.060
  • We started with praise and
  • 00:12:36.060 --> 00:12:39.000
  • worship.
  • 00:12:39.000 --> 00:12:40.090
  • We end with praise and worship.
  • 00:12:40.100 --> 00:12:43.100
  • Thank you, Father.
  • 00:12:43.100 --> 00:12:44.190
  • Yours is the kingdom.
  • 00:12:44.190 --> 00:12:46.020
  • Yours is the power.
  • 00:12:46.020 --> 00:12:48.240
  • Yours is the glory forever.
  • 00:12:49.030 --> 00:12:52.030
  • I'll worship you forever.
  • 00:12:52.030 --> 00:12:53.280
  • I'll sing of your praises
  • 00:12:53.280 --> 00:12:55.050
  • forever.
  • 00:12:55.050 --> 00:12:56.130
  • Did you ever hear the Lord's
  • 00:12:56.130 --> 00:12:57.150
  • Prayer song?
  • 00:12:57.150 --> 00:12:59.130
  • It used to be a popular song in
  • 00:12:59.130 --> 00:13:01.140
  • Christian world.
  • 00:13:01.140 --> 00:13:02.260
  • That's singing the Lord's
  • 00:13:02.260 --> 00:13:04.150
  • prayer.
  • 00:13:04.150 --> 00:13:05.160
  • I'll never forget the ending,
  • 00:13:05.160 --> 00:13:06.260
  • For thine is the kingdom
  • 00:13:07.180 --> 00:13:10.180
  • You ever heard that song?
  • 00:13:10.180 --> 00:13:11.240
  • And the power
  • 00:13:12.220 --> 00:13:15.220
  • Don't, don't like my singing?

  • And the glory forever

  • Okay, we'll let Tasha do the
  • 00:13:25.020 --> 00:13:26.020
  • singing.
  • 00:13:26.020 --> 00:13:28.280
  • But leaving your prayer time
  • 00:13:28.280 --> 00:13:31.100
  • with praise, right?
  • 00:13:31.100 --> 00:13:33.240
  • Leaving your prayer time
  • 00:13:33.240 --> 00:13:35.020
  • thanking God.
  • 00:13:35.020 --> 00:13:36.090
  • "You hear and you answer my
  • 00:13:36.090 --> 00:13:38.040
  • prayer.
  • 00:13:38.040 --> 00:13:39.000
  • It's your power, Lord.
  • 00:13:39.000 --> 00:13:40.130
  • It's your glory, Lord.
  • 00:13:40.130 --> 00:13:42.040
  • Thank you, you hear and you
  • 00:13:42.040 --> 00:13:44.080
  • answer my prayer."
  • 00:13:44.080 --> 00:13:45.290
  • That's how we finish.
  • 00:13:45.290 --> 00:13:47.040
  • And if you'll just follow these
  • 00:13:47.040 --> 00:13:48.200
  • six prayer steps that Jesus gave
  • 00:13:48.250 --> 00:13:51.250
  • us, right?
  • 00:13:51.250 --> 00:13:53.040
  • He knows how to pray.
  • 00:13:53.040 --> 00:13:55.030
  • He's our Lord and Savior.
  • 00:13:55.030 --> 00:13:56.220
  • He's telling you this'll work.
  • 00:13:56.220 --> 00:13:59.160
  • Do it.
  • 00:13:59.160 --> 00:14:01.170
  • And if we'll follow it, it could
  • 00:14:01.170 --> 00:14:03.080
  • take you 2 minutes, or it could
  • 00:14:03.080 --> 00:14:05.220
  • take you 20 minutes, or it could
  • 00:14:05.220 --> 00:14:07.160
  • take you an hour, right?
  • 00:14:07.160 --> 00:14:09.150
  • You can pray through those six
  • 00:14:09.150 --> 00:14:10.280
  • things in just a moment, or you
  • 00:14:10.280 --> 00:14:13.040
  • can pray on each point for a few
  • 00:14:13.040 --> 00:14:15.260
  • moments, or you could pray
  • 00:14:15.260 --> 00:14:17.180
  • everything you know in
  • 00:14:17.180 --> 00:14:19.150
  • Scriptures, and spend time at
  • 00:14:19.150 --> 00:14:21.130
  • each point, and take an hour in
  • 00:14:21.130 --> 00:14:23.080
  • prayer.
  • 00:14:23.080 --> 00:14:24.090
  • Whatever you do, God hears.
  • 00:14:24.090 --> 00:14:27.000
  • God answers your prayer.
  • 00:14:27.000 --> 00:14:28.230
  • However you pray it in your
  • 00:14:28.230 --> 00:14:30.070
  • language, with your accent, and
  • 00:14:30.070 --> 00:14:32.260
  • your perspectives, God hears and
  • 00:14:32.270 --> 00:14:35.270
  • God answers your prayer.
  • 00:14:35.270 --> 00:14:37.240
  • And why does he tell us this?
  • 00:14:37.240 --> 00:14:39.210
  • 'Cause he wants to answer your
  • 00:14:39.210 --> 00:14:42.030
  • prayer.
  • 00:14:42.030 --> 00:14:43.020
  • He wants to be at work in your
  • 00:14:43.020 --> 00:14:44.260
  • life.
  • 00:14:44.260 --> 00:14:45.260
  • Don't let anything stop your
  • 00:14:45.260 --> 00:14:47.250
  • prayer life.
  • 00:14:47.250 --> 00:14:48.280
  • Don't let anxiety stop your
  • 00:14:48.280 --> 00:14:50.250
  • prayer life.
  • 00:14:50.250 --> 00:14:52.020
  • Don't let fear stop your prayer
  • 00:14:52.020 --> 00:14:53.150
  • life.
  • 00:14:53.150 --> 00:14:54.090
  • Worry, no, not gonna stop my
  • 00:14:54.090 --> 00:14:56.000
  • prayer life.
  • 00:14:56.000 --> 00:14:57.040
  • Unforgiveness, no, not gonna
  • 00:14:57.040 --> 00:14:59.060
  • stop my prayer life.
  • 00:14:59.070 --> 00:15:02.090
  • The other day, I was on my
  • 00:15:02.090 --> 00:15:03.180
  • phone, walking downtown Seattle,
  • 00:15:03.180 --> 00:15:06.070
  • 'cause I would never be on my
  • 00:15:06.070 --> 00:15:07.150
  • phone while I was driving,
  • 00:15:09.100 --> 00:15:12.100
  • unless you're with an Uber,
  • 00:15:12.140 --> 00:15:15.140
  • amen?
  • 00:15:15.140 --> 00:15:16.250
  • So, I'm walking downtown on the
  • 00:15:16.250 --> 00:15:19.130
  • sidewalk on my phone.
  • 00:15:19.130 --> 00:15:21.250
  • An important conversation, but
  • 00:15:21.250 --> 00:15:23.070
  • I'm on my way to a meeting.
  • 00:15:23.070 --> 00:15:24.130
  • I got to get to my meeting.
  • 00:15:24.130 --> 00:15:27.100
  • And I could tell I was losing
  • 00:15:27.100 --> 00:15:28.180
  • the signal.
  • 00:15:28.180 --> 00:15:29.130
  • Have you ever been in that
  • 00:15:29.130 --> 00:15:30.010
  • situation, you could tell you're
  • 00:15:30.010 --> 00:15:32.080
  • losing your signal?
  • 00:15:32.080 --> 00:15:33.140
  • And I started-- every other word
  • 00:15:33.140 --> 00:15:35.140
  • started dropping out.
  • 00:15:35.140 --> 00:15:37.250
  • And I had to get to my meeting,
  • 00:15:37.250 --> 00:15:38.250
  • I had to keep going, but then
  • 00:15:38.250 --> 00:15:39.260
  • I'd, "Can you hear me?
  • 00:15:39.260 --> 00:15:42.040
  • Are you there?
  • 00:15:42.040 --> 00:15:42.230
  • Are you still there?"
  • 00:15:42.230 --> 00:15:44.030
  • You ever been in that
  • 00:15:44.030 --> 00:15:44.210
  • conversation?
  • 00:15:44.210 --> 00:15:46.240
  • And I'm hearing a little bit
  • 00:15:46.240 --> 00:15:48.110
  • still, but I'm losing signal.
  • 00:15:48.280 --> 00:15:51.280
  • That's what happens when you
  • 00:15:51.280 --> 00:15:53.270
  • stop praying.
  • 00:15:53.270 --> 00:15:55.280
  • That's what happens when you
  • 00:15:55.280 --> 00:15:58.030
  • stop forgiving.
  • 00:15:58.030 --> 00:16:00.160
  • That's what happens when you're
  • 00:16:00.160 --> 00:16:02.060
  • wrestling in the things of this
  • 00:16:02.060 --> 00:16:04.160
  • world.
  • 00:16:04.160 --> 00:16:05.220
  • You're talking to God, but your
  • 00:16:05.220 --> 00:16:07.210
  • signal is going bad.
  • 00:16:07.230 --> 00:16:10.230
  • You think you're still walking
  • 00:16:10.230 --> 00:16:12.020
  • with the Lord, but you're losing
  • 00:16:12.020 --> 00:16:14.250
  • your connection.
  • 00:16:14.250 --> 00:16:16.120
  • And pretty soon it completely
  • 00:16:16.120 --> 00:16:18.040
  • drops out.
  • 00:16:18.040 --> 00:16:20.040
  • Let's keep our heart right.
  • 00:16:20.040 --> 00:16:21.210
  • Let's keep our prayer life
  • 00:16:21.210 --> 00:16:22.170
  • strong.
  • 00:16:22.170 --> 00:16:23.190
  • Let's go on, and win, and walk
  • 00:16:23.190 --> 00:16:25.280
  • with God in every situation.
  • 00:16:26.060 --> 00:16:29.060
  • Now I want to show you one more
  • 00:16:29.060 --> 00:16:30.080
  • prayer from the life of David.
  • 00:16:30.080 --> 00:16:32.280
  • Go to Psalm 51.
  • 00:16:33.230 --> 00:16:36.230
  • Psalm 51.
  • 00:16:36.230 --> 00:16:38.210
  • I showed you the prayer of
  • 00:16:38.210 --> 00:16:39.210
  • Jabez, the prayer of Jesus
  • 00:16:39.260 --> 00:16:42.260
  • outlined, now here's a prayer
  • 00:16:42.260 --> 00:16:45.180
  • from the life of David.
  • 00:16:45.180 --> 00:16:47.250
  • You know David.
  • 00:16:47.250 --> 00:16:49.020
  • He's one of the greatest men in
  • 00:16:49.020 --> 00:16:50.110
  • the Bible.
  • 00:16:50.110 --> 00:16:51.130
  • God liked David.
  • 00:16:51.130 --> 00:16:53.090
  • He built the temple.
  • 00:16:53.090 --> 00:16:55.130
  • He led worship.
  • 00:16:55.130 --> 00:16:57.100
  • He prophesied.
  • 00:16:57.100 --> 00:16:58.200
  • The largest book of the Bible,
  • 00:16:58.200 --> 00:17:01.070
  • the book of Psalms, came from
  • 00:17:01.070 --> 00:17:02.280
  • David, mostly from David.
  • 00:17:02.280 --> 00:17:05.110
  • He was a king that God blessed
  • 00:17:05.110 --> 00:17:07.280
  • and brought more land and more
  • 00:17:07.280 --> 00:17:09.210
  • victory to Israel than any other
  • 00:17:09.210 --> 00:17:12.140
  • king.
  • 00:17:12.140 --> 00:17:13.180
  • David, an amazing man.
  • 00:17:13.180 --> 00:17:16.030
  • And yet, still a man.
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:20.160
  • Therefore, we know men have
  • 00:17:20.160 --> 00:17:22.050
  • problems.
  • 00:17:22.050 --> 00:17:23.180
  • Men make mistakes.
  • 00:17:23.180 --> 00:17:25.070
  • Men do dumb things.
  • 00:17:25.070 --> 00:17:27.280
  • And David was a man.
  • 00:17:27.280 --> 00:17:30.160
  • David had an affair.
  • 00:17:30.160 --> 00:17:32.250
  • This thing just kept going.
  • 00:17:32.250 --> 00:17:34.100
  • It snowballed into more and more
  • 00:17:34.100 --> 00:17:35.230
  • troubles and David found himself
  • 00:17:36.170 --> 00:17:39.170
  • in a tragedy.
  • 00:17:39.170 --> 00:17:42.110
  • And here's his prayer.
  • 00:17:42.110 --> 00:17:44.100
  • He went back to God.
  • 00:17:44.100 --> 00:17:46.190
  • He started in pain, and then he
  • 00:17:47.010 --> 00:17:50.010
  • prayed, and he ended in praise.
  • 00:17:51.020 --> 00:17:54.020
  • I want you to see it.
  • 00:17:54.020 --> 00:17:55.070
  • David's life wasn't perfect, but
  • 00:17:55.070 --> 00:17:58.050
  • he always went back to God, even
  • 00:17:58.050 --> 00:18:00.250
  • when he was in pain.
  • 00:18:00.250 --> 00:18:03.050
  • And then he would pray, and he
  • 00:18:03.050 --> 00:18:05.190
  • would end up in praise.
  • 00:18:05.190 --> 00:18:08.020
  • Look at it, Psalm 51, verse 1,
  • 00:18:08.110 --> 00:18:11.110
  • "Have mercy on me, O God,
  • 00:18:12.260 --> 00:18:15.260
  • according to your
  • 00:18:15.260 --> 00:18:16.280
  • lovingkindness, according to the
  • 00:18:16.280 --> 00:18:18.290
  • multitude of your tender
  • 00:18:18.290 --> 00:18:20.140
  • mercies.
  • 00:18:20.140 --> 00:18:21.100
  • Blot out my transgressions.
  • 00:18:21.100 --> 00:18:23.220
  • Wash me from my iniquity.
  • 00:18:23.220 --> 00:18:26.120
  • Cleanse me from my sin.
  • 00:18:26.120 --> 00:18:29.070
  • I acknowledge my transgression.
  • 00:18:29.070 --> 00:18:31.250
  • My sin is always before me."
  • 00:18:33.020 --> 00:18:36.020
  • So you can tell he's in a bad
  • 00:18:36.020 --> 00:18:37.270
  • place.
  • 00:18:37.270 --> 00:18:39.070
  • When he started writing this
  • 00:18:39.070 --> 00:18:41.050
  • prayer, he was struggling.
  • 00:18:41.050 --> 00:18:43.160
  • He was condemning himself.
  • 00:18:43.160 --> 00:18:45.170
  • He was miserable.
  • 00:18:45.170 --> 00:18:46.230
  • He knew he had messed up and he
  • 00:18:46.230 --> 00:18:48.020
  • was just kinda living in that
  • 00:18:48.020 --> 00:18:49.230
  • pain.
  • 00:18:49.230 --> 00:18:51.140
  • You know, along with
  • 00:18:51.140 --> 00:18:52.080
  • forgiveness, we forgive others,
  • 00:18:53.140 --> 00:18:56.140
  • we also have to forgive
  • 00:18:56.140 --> 00:18:57.080
  • ourselves.
  • 00:18:57.080 --> 00:18:59.140
  • The Bible doesn't teach you to
  • 00:18:59.140 --> 00:19:01.080
  • live in condemnation.
  • 00:19:01.080 --> 00:19:03.230
  • Conviction, sure, but not
  • 00:19:03.230 --> 00:19:05.280
  • condemnation.
  • 00:19:05.280 --> 00:19:07.240
  • What's the difference?
  • 00:19:07.240 --> 00:19:08.230
  • Conviction says, "I want to get
  • 00:19:08.230 --> 00:19:10.080
  • better.
  • 00:19:10.080 --> 00:19:11.070
  • I want to be stronger.
  • 00:19:11.070 --> 00:19:12.140
  • I never wanna go there again.
  • 00:19:12.140 --> 00:19:14.150
  • I want to rise up."
  • 00:19:14.150 --> 00:19:16.020
  • Condemnation says, "I'm so
  • 00:19:16.020 --> 00:19:17.190
  • stupid.
  • 00:19:17.190 --> 00:19:18.160
  • I always do the wrong thing.
  • 00:19:18.160 --> 00:19:19.260
  • I'll never get out of debt.
  • 00:19:19.260 --> 00:19:21.160
  • I'll never get out of these
  • 00:19:21.160 --> 00:19:22.250
  • terrible relationships.
  • 00:19:22.250 --> 00:19:24.100
  • What's wrong with me?"
  • 00:19:24.100 --> 00:19:25.240
  • No, the Bible said there is no
  • 00:19:25.240 --> 00:19:27.280
  • condemnation in Christ.
  • 00:19:28.000 --> 00:19:31.000
  • Yeah, conviction to help
  • 00:19:31.000 --> 00:19:32.170
  • motivate us, to help us rise up
  • 00:19:32.170 --> 00:19:35.080
  • and be better, but not
  • 00:19:35.080 --> 00:19:37.220
  • condemnation.
  • 00:19:37.220 --> 00:19:38.250
  • And sometimes we think to feel
  • 00:19:38.250 --> 00:19:40.160
  • guilty and to be condemned is
  • 00:19:40.160 --> 00:19:42.220
  • spiritual.
  • 00:19:42.220 --> 00:19:44.240
  • "Yeah, I just feel so bad.
  • 00:19:44.240 --> 00:19:46.280
  • I just feel the weight, the
  • 00:19:46.280 --> 00:19:48.170
  • burden.
  • 00:19:48.170 --> 00:19:49.240
  • I know I've been--"
  • 00:19:49.240 --> 00:19:51.030
  • And you think that's a spiritual
  • 00:19:51.030 --> 00:19:52.140
  • place.
  • 00:19:52.140 --> 00:19:53.130
  • No, that's the enemy tryin' to
  • 00:19:53.130 --> 00:19:55.070
  • push you down.
  • 00:19:55.070 --> 00:19:57.050
  • The Bible is trying to lift you
  • 00:19:57.050 --> 00:19:58.200
  • up.
  • 00:19:58.200 --> 00:19:59.140
  • The Holy Spirit is trying to
  • 00:19:59.140 --> 00:20:00.200
  • lift you up.
  • 00:20:00.200 --> 00:20:02.040
  • So David starts in his pain
  • 00:20:02.040 --> 00:20:04.190
  • and he says, "Forgive me, God.
  • 00:20:04.190 --> 00:20:07.000
  • Wash me.
  • 00:20:07.000 --> 00:20:08.030
  • Cleanse me.
  • 00:20:08.030 --> 00:20:09.030
  • Get me out of this problem.
  • 00:20:09.030 --> 00:20:11.040
  • Get me out of this sin.
  • 00:20:11.040 --> 00:20:12.190
  • Get me out of this guilt.
  • 00:20:12.190 --> 00:20:14.060
  • Get me out of this
  • 00:20:14.060 --> 00:20:14.290
  • condemnation."
  • 00:20:14.290 --> 00:20:16.150
  • And then look at verse 10.
  • 00:20:16.150 --> 00:20:18.200
  • Psalm 51:10, "Create in me a
  • 00:20:20.000 --> 00:20:23.000
  • clean heart, O God.
  • 00:20:23.000 --> 00:20:25.100
  • Renew a steadfast spirit within
  • 00:20:25.100 --> 00:20:27.140
  • me.
  • 00:20:27.140 --> 00:20:28.190
  • Do not cast me away from your
  • 00:20:28.190 --> 00:20:30.100
  • presence.
  • 00:20:30.100 --> 00:20:31.290
  • Do not take your Holy Spirit
  • 00:20:31.290 --> 00:20:33.200
  • from me."
  • 00:20:33.200 --> 00:20:34.250
  • Now, you see David is beginning
  • 00:20:34.250 --> 00:20:36.250
  • to pray.
  • 00:20:36.250 --> 00:20:37.170
  • He went from pain to prayer.
  • 00:20:37.170 --> 00:20:38.240
  • "Create in me a new heart, God.
  • 00:20:38.240 --> 00:20:41.010
  • Lord, thank you for a new
  • 00:20:41.010 --> 00:20:42.200
  • spirit.
  • 00:20:42.200 --> 00:20:43.160
  • Thank you for healing in my
  • 00:20:43.160 --> 00:20:44.190
  • life.
  • 00:20:44.190 --> 00:20:45.120
  • Thank you for renewal in my
  • 00:20:45.120 --> 00:20:47.000
  • life.
  • 00:20:47.000 --> 00:20:47.200
  • Recreation.
  • 00:20:47.200 --> 00:20:49.150
  • Lord, recreate the joy in my
  • 00:20:49.150 --> 00:20:51.010
  • marriage.
  • 00:20:51.010 --> 00:20:52.110
  • Recreate the love in my
  • 00:20:52.110 --> 00:20:54.020
  • marriage.
  • 00:20:54.020 --> 00:20:55.010
  • Recreate the happiness in my
  • 00:20:55.010 --> 00:20:56.280
  • home.
  • 00:20:56.280 --> 00:20:57.200
  • Get me past this problem."
  • 00:20:57.200 --> 00:20:59.180
  • You've been struggling with
  • 00:20:59.180 --> 00:21:00.200
  • financial trouble.
  • 00:21:00.200 --> 00:21:02.030
  • You've been struggling with job
  • 00:21:02.030 --> 00:21:03.170
  • problems.
  • 00:21:03.170 --> 00:21:04.160
  • You've been struggling, fighting
  • 00:21:04.160 --> 00:21:05.230
  • in your home.
  • 00:21:05.230 --> 00:21:06.180
  • "Get me past this, Lord.
  • 00:21:06.180 --> 00:21:08.170
  • Create in me a new heart."
  • 00:21:08.170 --> 00:21:11.160
  • And God begins to work.
  • 00:21:11.160 --> 00:21:13.040
  • Don't take the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:13.040 --> 00:21:14.150
  • We know from the New Testament,
  • 00:21:14.150 --> 00:21:16.290
  • the Holy Spirit will never leave
  • 00:21:16.290 --> 00:21:18.140
  • you nor forsake you.
  • 00:21:18.140 --> 00:21:20.240
  • Work in our home, Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:20.240 --> 00:21:22.190
  • Bring healing in the home.
  • 00:21:22.190 --> 00:21:24.060
  • Bring renewal in our
  • 00:21:24.060 --> 00:21:26.030
  • relationships, Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:26.030 --> 00:21:27.240
  • Lift us above these problems.
  • 00:21:27.240 --> 00:21:30.040
  • Lift us above our anxieties.
  • 00:21:30.040 --> 00:21:32.160
  • Lift us above our negativity.
  • 00:21:32.160 --> 00:21:35.010
  • Help us, Holy Spirit.
  • 00:21:35.010 --> 00:21:36.210
  • So David's gone from pain to
  • 00:21:36.210 --> 00:21:38.140
  • prayer.
  • 00:21:38.140 --> 00:21:39.140
  • Now he sees what God can do.
  • 00:21:39.140 --> 00:21:41.110
  • Now he's believing God's at
  • 00:21:41.110 --> 00:21:43.040
  • work.
  • 00:21:43.040 --> 00:21:43.260
  • God's gonna get me through.
  • 00:21:43.260 --> 00:21:45.030
  • God's gonna lift me up.
  • 00:21:45.030 --> 00:21:46.120
  • God's gonna create in me a new
  • 00:21:46.120 --> 00:21:49.030
  • circumstance.
  • 00:21:49.030 --> 00:21:50.190
  • Church, never doubt, never
  • 00:21:50.230 --> 00:21:53.230
  • forget, God can create a new
  • 00:21:54.150 --> 00:21:57.150
  • circumstance.
  • 00:21:57.150 --> 00:21:58.250
  • He can rewrite your story.
  • 00:21:58.250 --> 00:22:01.160
  • He can rewrite the narrative.
  • 00:22:01.160 --> 00:22:03.290
  • He can bring a new perspective.
  • 00:22:03.290 --> 00:22:06.190
  • There was sorrow in the midst of
  • 00:22:06.190 --> 00:22:09.160
  • labor, but now there's joy when
  • 00:22:09.160 --> 00:22:12.140
  • the child is born.
  • 00:22:12.140 --> 00:22:14.160
  • There is pain in the
  • 00:22:14.160 --> 00:22:16.110
  • developmental process, but there
  • 00:22:16.110 --> 00:22:18.180
  • is joy in the victory and the
  • 00:22:18.180 --> 00:22:21.010
  • win.
  • 00:22:21.010 --> 00:22:22.010
  • And never forget, God can get
  • 00:22:24.190 --> 00:22:27.190
  • you to the win.
  • 00:22:27.190 --> 00:22:29.170
  • Oh, you say, "My wife left."
  • 00:22:29.170 --> 00:22:30.280
  • "My husband left."
  • 00:22:30.280 --> 00:22:32.060
  • "I got let go from the job."
  • 00:22:32.060 --> 00:22:33.280
  • "I'm way behind financially."
  • 00:22:33.280 --> 00:22:36.020
  • I know, it looks bad.
  • 00:22:36.020 --> 00:22:38.000
  • It feels bad.
  • 00:22:38.000 --> 00:22:39.030
  • It is bad, but that's why we're
  • 00:22:39.030 --> 00:22:41.080
  • praying.
  • 00:22:41.080 --> 00:22:42.230
  • We're connecting with God.
  • 00:22:42.230 --> 00:22:44.210
  • We're saying, "All right, God,
  • 00:22:44.210 --> 00:22:46.090
  • create in me a new story.
  • 00:22:46.090 --> 00:22:47.220
  • Create in me a new heart.
  • 00:22:47.220 --> 00:22:50.160
  • Create in me a new narrative.
  • 00:22:50.160 --> 00:22:52.290
  • Create in me a new vision."
  • 00:22:53.090 --> 00:22:56.090
  • And the Holy Spirit starts
  • 00:22:56.090 --> 00:22:58.070
  • working.
  • 00:22:58.070 --> 00:22:59.030
  • And David, out of his worst,
  • 00:22:59.030 --> 00:23:01.180
  • rose back up to be a great king
  • 00:23:01.250 --> 00:23:04.250
  • in Israel.
  • 00:23:04.250 --> 00:23:05.240
  • And you and I, out of our worst
  • 00:23:05.240 --> 00:23:07.250
  • circumstances, will rise back up
  • 00:23:07.250 --> 00:23:10.120
  • to serve God, and honor God, and
  • 00:23:10.120 --> 00:23:13.000
  • make a difference in our world,
  • 00:23:13.000 --> 00:23:15.200
  • amen?
  • 00:23:15.200 --> 00:23:17.160
  • Look at it with me.
  • 00:23:17.160 --> 00:23:18.220
  • Psalm 51, verse 12, "Restore to
  • 00:23:19.040 --> 00:23:22.040
  • me the joy of your salvation.
  • 00:23:23.180 --> 00:23:26.180
  • Uphold me by your generous
  • 00:23:26.180 --> 00:23:29.100
  • Spirit.
  • 00:23:29.100 --> 00:23:30.250
  • Then I will teach transgressors
  • 00:23:30.250 --> 00:23:33.030
  • your ways.
  • 00:23:33.030 --> 00:23:34.030
  • Sinners will be converted to
  • 00:23:34.030 --> 00:23:36.070
  • you."
  • 00:23:36.070 --> 00:23:37.030
  • Hey, out of our pain, we get to
  • 00:23:37.030 --> 00:23:39.110
  • praise and then other people
  • 00:23:39.110 --> 00:23:41.120
  • start getting help.
  • 00:23:41.120 --> 00:23:42.250
  • We get our mind off ourselves,
  • 00:23:42.250 --> 00:23:44.230
  • we start thinkin' about sharing
  • 00:23:44.230 --> 00:23:46.140
  • this life, sharing this love,
  • 00:23:46.140 --> 00:23:49.010
  • giving away what we have to
  • 00:23:49.010 --> 00:23:50.240
  • other people, stop wallowing in
  • 00:23:50.240 --> 00:23:53.100
  • our own stuff.
  • 00:23:53.100 --> 00:23:54.150
  • "And Lord, I'm gonna, I'm gonna
  • 00:23:54.150 --> 00:23:56.000
  • give it to others," David said.
  • 00:23:56.000 --> 00:23:57.190
  • "I'll teach others and they'll
  • 00:23:57.190 --> 00:23:59.170
  • be converted."
  • 00:23:59.170 --> 00:24:01.110
  • And all of a sudden your life
  • 00:24:01.110 --> 00:24:03.010
  • has new meaning, and new
  • 00:24:03.010 --> 00:24:05.030
  • motivation, and new spirit, and
  • 00:24:06.080 --> 00:24:09.080
  • the joy of your salvation.
  • 00:24:09.260 --> 00:24:12.260
  • Let's move from pain, to prayer,
  • 00:24:13.120 --> 00:24:16.120
  • to praise, and let's find that
  • 00:24:16.120 --> 00:24:19.010
  • joy in the Lord.
  • 00:24:19.010 --> 00:24:21.240
  • Maybe it's a family
  • 00:24:21.240 --> 00:24:23.220
  • circumstance, a financial
  • 00:24:23.220 --> 00:24:25.220
  • circumstance, a physical
  • 00:24:25.220 --> 00:24:28.020
  • circumstance.
  • 00:24:28.020 --> 00:24:29.210
  • Wendy and I have had many in our
  • 00:24:29.210 --> 00:24:31.280
  • life together.
  • 00:24:31.280 --> 00:24:33.130
  • Many battles, many challenges,
  • 00:24:33.130 --> 00:24:35.210
  • but we keep moving from pain, to
  • 00:24:35.220 --> 00:24:38.220
  • prayer, to praise.
  • 00:24:38.220 --> 00:24:41.020
  • Keep walking with God.
  • 00:24:41.020 --> 00:24:42.190
  • Never quit.
  • 00:24:42.190 --> 00:24:43.210
  • Never give up.
  • 00:24:43.210 --> 00:24:44.230
  • Pain, prayer, praise.
  • 00:24:44.270 --> 00:24:47.270
  • I'm going to follow that step.
  • 00:24:47.270 --> 00:24:50.160
  • I'm going to follow my prayer
  • 00:24:50.160 --> 00:24:52.220
  • life and I'm going to overcome,
  • 00:24:52.220 --> 00:24:55.120
  • in Jesus' name.
  • 00:24:55.120 --> 00:24:57.210
  • I hope every time you think
  • 00:24:57.210 --> 00:24:59.150
  • about the Lord's Prayer, you see
  • 00:24:59.150 --> 00:25:01.190
  • yourself walking through that
  • 00:25:01.190 --> 00:25:04.040
  • challenge, through that problem,
  • 00:25:04.040 --> 00:25:06.150
  • to the blessing of the Lord.
