  • 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:02.060
  • - Ronald Hill: Wisdom,
  • 00:00:02.060 --> 00:00:03.070
  • there it is again.
  • 00:00:03.070 --> 00:00:03.280
  • It was not with man's wisdom.
  • 00:00:03.280 --> 00:00:05.280
  • You see, when the devil trick
  • 00:00:05.280 --> 00:00:07.020
  • you, he'll make you
  • 00:00:07.020 --> 00:00:08.090
  • think you're smart.
  • 00:00:08.090 --> 00:00:09.260
  • He'll make you think you know
  • 00:00:09.260 --> 00:00:11.160
  • what you're doing.
  • 00:00:11.160 --> 00:00:13.160
  • He'll make you think you don't
  • 00:00:13.160 --> 00:00:14.260
  • need to go to church,
  • 00:00:14.260 --> 00:00:16.140
  • you don't need to do that.
  • 00:00:16.140 --> 00:00:17.290
  • Everything is different.
  • 00:00:17.290 --> 00:00:18.270
  • No, it is not when
  • 00:00:18.270 --> 00:00:20.070
  • it comes to God.
  • 00:00:20.070 --> 00:00:21.170
  • Jesus Christ is the same
  • 00:00:21.170 --> 00:00:22.220
  • yesterday, today, and forever.
  • 00:00:23.050 --> 00:00:26.050
  • God is immutable,
  • 00:00:26.050 --> 00:00:27.230
  • he is a changeless one.
  • 00:00:27.230 --> 00:00:30.030
  • His Word was good yesterday,
  • 00:00:30.030 --> 00:00:31.230
  • it's good today, and
  • 00:00:31.230 --> 00:00:32.290
  • it's going to be good tomorrow.
  • 00:00:32.290 --> 00:00:34.210
  • And so, what we need to do is
  • 00:00:34.210 --> 00:00:35.270
  • get in line with his Word,
  • 00:00:35.270 --> 00:00:37.120
  • and stop trying to figure things
  • 00:00:37.120 --> 00:00:39.060
  • out on our own.
  • 00:00:39.060 --> 00:00:41.130
  • You want to go crazy?
  • 00:00:41.130 --> 00:00:42.240
  • Try to figure life out
  • 00:00:42.240 --> 00:00:44.120
  • without God's help.
  • 00:00:44.120 --> 00:00:46.070
  • You want to get nutty?
  • 00:00:46.070 --> 00:00:47.120
  • You want to get weird?
  • 00:00:47.120 --> 00:00:48.210
  • You want to get spooky?
  • 00:00:48.210 --> 00:00:50.000
  • You want to get full of fear?
  • 00:00:50.000 --> 00:00:51.210
  • You want to get full of anxiety?
  • 00:00:51.210 --> 00:00:53.130
  • You want to get to the dark
  • 00:00:53.130 --> 00:00:54.170
  • side, where you're shaking
  • 00:00:54.170 --> 00:00:55.270
  • like a dog in a frost?
  • 00:00:55.270 --> 00:00:57.200
  • Well, then you
  • 00:00:57.200 --> 00:00:58.080
  • - Ronald: In the name of Jesus.
  • 00:01:13.100 --> 00:01:15.020
  • So, today I want to challenge
  • 00:01:15.020 --> 00:01:16.160
  • you to tap into God's power.
  • 00:01:17.150 --> 00:01:20.150
  • Tapping into
  • 00:01:20.150 --> 00:01:21.050
  • God's power by faith.
  • 00:01:21.050 --> 00:01:23.060
  • Tapping into God's power
  • 00:01:23.060 --> 00:01:24.150
  • through prayer, glory to God.
  • 00:01:24.150 --> 00:01:27.150
  • The power of God is available to
  • 00:01:28.110 --> 00:01:31.110
  • any and everybody.
  • 00:01:31.110 --> 00:01:33.290
  • Not just for me, and not just
  • 00:01:33.290 --> 00:01:36.000
  • no sir, no ma'am.
  • 00:01:38.210 --> 00:01:40.150
  • The power of God is available to
  • 00:01:40.250 --> 00:01:43.250
  • anybody who wants it,
  • 00:01:43.250 --> 00:01:46.250
  • and anybody who knows
  • 00:01:46.250 --> 00:01:49.110
  • that it is available.
  • 00:01:49.110 --> 00:01:51.080
  • The kingdom of God
  • 00:01:51.080 --> 00:01:52.140
  • is within you.
  • 00:01:52.140 --> 00:01:54.120
  • The kingdom of God is in
  • 00:01:54.120 --> 00:01:55.290
  • this room right now.
  • 00:01:55.290 --> 00:01:58.070
  • All that God is is
  • 00:01:58.070 --> 00:01:59.200
  • in this room right now.
  • 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:02.210
  • The glory of God is in here now.
  • 00:02:02.210 --> 00:02:04.180
  • The power of God is in here now.
  • 00:02:04.180 --> 00:02:07.120
  • to move in your life, then you
  • 00:02:09.130 --> 00:02:11.290
  • got to plug into it.
  • 00:02:11.290 --> 00:02:14.000
  • Turn to your neighbor and say,
  • 00:02:14.000 --> 00:02:15.000
  • "Plug into the power of God."
  • 00:02:15.280 --> 00:02:18.280
  • How does one do that?
  • 00:02:18.280 --> 00:02:20.160
  • Well, prayer is the one--prayer
  • 00:02:20.160 --> 00:02:23.100
  • is one of the main ways that
  • 00:02:23.100 --> 00:02:24.250
  • we tap into the power of God.
  • 00:02:24.250 --> 00:02:27.160
  • Prayer is one of the
  • 00:02:27.160 --> 00:02:28.060
  • in the body of Christ.
  • 00:02:30.120 --> 00:02:33.040
  • Prayer is one of
  • 00:02:33.040 --> 00:02:34.230
  • the main disciplines in
  • 00:02:34.230 --> 00:02:36.040
  • the body of Christ,
  • 00:02:36.040 --> 00:02:37.100
  • and this is the reason
  • 00:02:37.100 --> 00:02:38.210
  • why Satan is always
  • 00:02:38.230 --> 00:02:41.230
  • fighting your prayer life.
  • 00:02:43.060 --> 00:02:46.060
  • He has some people thinking
  • 00:02:46.060 --> 00:02:47.130
  • that there are
  • 00:02:47.130 --> 00:02:49.030
  • special prayer warriors
  • 00:02:49.030 --> 00:02:50.130
  • in the church, and they do
  • 00:02:50.130 --> 00:02:51.250
  • the praying, and we do
  • 00:02:51.250 --> 00:02:53.130
  • the--get the benefits from their
  • 00:02:53.130 --> 00:02:56.050
  • praying, and we go home and we
  • 00:02:56.050 --> 00:02:58.170
  • we get into emailing and texting
  • 00:03:01.220 --> 00:03:03.280
  • and going on Facebook, and we go
  • 00:03:03.280 --> 00:03:05.250
  • the malls while everybody else
  • 00:03:05.250 --> 00:03:08.020
  • is praying, and we certainly
  • 00:03:08.020 --> 00:03:09.190
  • hope they get a prayer through
  • 00:03:09.190 --> 00:03:11.050
  • because we need God to
  • 00:03:11.050 --> 00:03:12.100
  • do something for us.
  • 00:03:12.100 --> 00:03:14.150
  • Now, that is such a foolish way
  • 00:03:14.150 --> 00:03:17.040
  • to live in this earth.
  • 00:03:17.040 --> 00:03:19.200
  • Everybody ought to
  • 00:03:19.200 --> 00:03:20.220
  • have a prayer life.
  • 00:03:20.220 --> 00:03:23.010
  • Oh don't get me to started
  • 00:03:23.010 --> 00:03:24.030
  • to preaching in here.
  • 00:03:24.030 --> 00:03:26.010
  • Everybody ought to be praying,
  • 00:03:26.010 --> 00:03:27.250
  • am I right about it?
  • 00:03:27.250 --> 00:03:29.250
  • Prayer is something
  • 00:03:29.250 --> 00:03:31.190
  • we all must participate in.
  • 00:03:31.190 --> 00:03:34.130
  • If we fail in our prayer life,
  • 00:03:34.130 --> 00:03:37.130
  • we will fail as a Christian.
  • 00:03:37.150 --> 00:03:40.150
  • I'm going to preach
  • 00:03:40.150 --> 00:03:41.080
  • that into your spirit.
  • 00:03:41.080 --> 00:03:42.270
  • I'm going to try to preach it in
  • 00:03:42.270 --> 00:03:43.230
  • there one more time.
  • 00:03:43.230 --> 00:03:45.120
  • If you--if you fail in your
  • 00:03:45.120 --> 00:03:48.050
  • prayer life, you're going to
  • 00:03:48.050 --> 00:03:51.050
  • fail as a Christian.
  • 00:03:51.050 --> 00:03:53.210
  • Thank you Jesus, amen, amen.
  • 00:03:53.210 --> 00:03:55.240
  • We'll try it
  • 00:03:55.240 --> 00:03:57.230
  • one more time, amen.
  • 00:03:57.230 --> 00:03:58.270
  • If you fail to pray, you're
  • 00:03:58.270 --> 00:03:59.280
  • going to fail as a Christian.
  • 00:04:00.160 --> 00:04:03.160
  • "Well, I'm going to do
  • 00:04:03.160 --> 00:04:05.140
  • the best I can, pastor."
  • 00:04:05.140 --> 00:04:06.170
  • Your doing the best
  • 00:04:06.170 --> 00:04:07.060
  • you can ain't enough.
  • 00:04:07.060 --> 00:04:09.270
  • You doing the best you
  • 00:04:09.270 --> 00:04:10.150
  • can is not enough.
  • 00:04:10.150 --> 00:04:11.190
  • And it's not enough for you to
  • 00:04:11.190 --> 00:04:12.180
  • sit around here, and moan,
  • 00:04:12.180 --> 00:04:13.270
  • and groan about how
  • 00:04:13.270 --> 00:04:15.050
  • bad things are in your life.
  • 00:04:15.190 --> 00:04:18.190
  • It's bad for everybody,
  • 00:04:18.190 --> 00:04:21.010
  • but those of us who got
  • 00:04:21.010 --> 00:04:22.000
  • a lick of sense,
  • 00:04:22.000 --> 00:04:22.280
  • we know that when things
  • 00:04:22.280 --> 00:04:24.160
  • get rough on us,
  • 00:04:24.160 --> 00:04:25.270
  • We call on the Lord.
  • 00:04:29.140 --> 00:04:32.040
  • Say amen, somebody.
  • 00:04:32.040 --> 00:04:34.010
  • So, raise your right hand
  • 00:04:34.010 --> 00:04:35.020
  • and say, "If I don't pray,
  • 00:04:35.020 --> 00:04:37.120
  • I'm guaranteed to fail
  • 00:04:37.120 --> 00:04:40.100
  • as a Christian."
  • 00:04:40.100 --> 00:04:43.000
  • You can know the Bible from
  • 00:04:43.000 --> 00:04:45.050
  • Genesis to Revelation, you
  • 00:04:45.050 --> 00:04:47.270
  • can have a PhD in theology, and
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:51.080
  • still fail as a Christian
  • 00:04:51.080 --> 00:04:53.220
  • if you don't pray.
  • 00:04:53.220 --> 00:04:55.210
  • "Well, Pastor Hill, I'm going to
  • 00:04:55.210 --> 00:04:56.170
  • go get me a degree."
  • 00:04:56.170 --> 00:04:57.220
  • Go get it, bro.
  • 00:04:57.220 --> 00:05:00.030
  • I mean, go get your degree,
  • 00:05:00.030 --> 00:05:01.160
  • sister, learn all
  • 00:05:01.160 --> 00:05:02.280
  • you can learn about God.
  • 00:05:02.280 --> 00:05:04.070
  • It is important to learn.
  • 00:05:04.070 --> 00:05:06.120
  • But if you don't pray,
  • 00:05:06.120 --> 00:05:09.070
  • whatever you know ain't going to
  • 00:05:09.070 --> 00:05:10.220
  • do you no good because
  • 00:05:10.220 --> 00:05:12.180
  • the devil will jump on you and
  • 00:05:12.180 --> 00:05:14.020
  • beat your brains out.
  • 00:05:14.020 --> 00:05:15.270
  • He'll bring hell to your job,
  • 00:05:15.270 --> 00:05:17.210
  • he'll bring hell to your family.
  • 00:05:17.210 --> 00:05:19.080
  • He'll bring hell everywhere, and
  • 00:05:19.080 --> 00:05:22.030
  • have you troubled in your mind.
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:24.080
  • But when you know how to get
  • 00:05:24.080 --> 00:05:25.290
  • ahold of God in prayer--ha ha,
  • 00:05:28.200 --> 00:05:31.200
  • I want to thank and praise God
  • 00:05:31.200 --> 00:05:32.230
  • I learned how to pray
  • 00:05:32.230 --> 00:05:33.230
  • a long time ago.
  • 00:05:33.230 --> 00:05:35.190
  • I've been praying since 1972,
  • 00:05:35.190 --> 00:05:38.150
  • glory to God.
  • 00:05:38.150 --> 00:05:40.110
  • And when I first started
  • 00:05:40.110 --> 00:05:41.150
  • praying, I had nothing
  • 00:05:41.150 --> 00:05:42.210
  • to show but a theory.
  • 00:05:42.210 --> 00:05:45.040
  • I saw it in the book,
  • 00:05:45.040 --> 00:05:46.190
  • and I said, "This will work,
  • 00:05:46.190 --> 00:05:47.270
  • I believe it will work."
  • 00:05:47.270 --> 00:05:48.290
  • And then I heard people
  • 00:05:48.290 --> 00:05:49.220
  • testifying that it
  • 00:05:49.220 --> 00:05:51.090
  • was working for them.
  • 00:05:51.090 --> 00:05:52.100
  • And some old folks, they all
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:53.220
  • dead and gone now, they would
  • 00:05:53.220 --> 00:05:55.110
  • sit up and old folks, some of
  • 00:05:55.110 --> 00:05:57.000
  • they rolling in in wheelchairs,
  • 00:05:57.000 --> 00:05:58.010
  • and they sit there.
  • 00:05:58.010 --> 00:05:59.130
  • Old mother by
  • 00:05:59.130 --> 00:06:01.060
  • the name of mother Ello Hill.
  • 00:06:01.060 --> 00:06:02.240
  • They used to bring
  • 00:06:02.240 --> 00:06:03.140
  • mother Ello Hill
  • 00:06:03.140 --> 00:06:04.140
  • down to the convocation,
  • 00:06:04.140 --> 00:06:05.130
  • she would say, "Dear hearts, get
  • 00:06:07.140 --> 00:06:09.020
  • into the Word," she'd say.
  • 00:06:09.020 --> 00:06:10.120
  • "Get into the Word, read your
  • 00:06:10.120 --> 00:06:11.160
  • Bibles, and pray," she said.
  • 00:06:11.160 --> 00:06:13.040
  • And I said to myself, "If them
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:14.100
  • old people saying that, I'm
  • 00:06:14.100 --> 00:06:15.130
  • going to try it for myself."
  • 00:06:15.130 --> 00:06:16.250
  • And I want you to know
  • 00:06:16.250 --> 00:06:18.010
  • that I struck out of trust
  • 00:06:18.010 --> 00:06:19.010
  • to feel praying.
  • 00:06:19.010 --> 00:06:20.080
  • I would pray in the morning,
  • 00:06:20.080 --> 00:06:21.140
  • I'd pray in the noonday,
  • 00:06:21.140 --> 00:06:22.220
  • I'd pray when the sun went down.
  • 00:06:22.220 --> 00:06:24.190
  • Glory to God, and I want you to
  • 00:06:24.190 --> 00:06:26.290
  • know I prayed so much
  • 00:06:26.290 --> 00:06:29.020
  • until I got drunk.
  • 00:06:29.020 --> 00:06:30.280
  • I got drunk on the Holy Ghost.
  • 00:06:30.280 --> 00:06:32.290
  • I staggered around,
  • 00:06:32.290 --> 00:06:34.010
  • [speaking in tongues]
  • 00:06:34.010 --> 00:06:36.050
  • There's joy in God.
  • 00:06:38.220 --> 00:06:41.130
  • But you don't know it
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:42.080
  • until you pray.
  • 00:06:42.080 --> 00:06:44.080
  • If you don't pray, you can't
  • 00:06:44.080 --> 00:06:45.150
  • know what I'm talking about.
  • 00:06:45.150 --> 00:06:47.210
  • It takes the Holy Ghost
  • 00:06:47.210 --> 00:06:48.210
  • to reveal this to you,
  • 00:06:48.210 --> 00:06:49.290
  • amen to God, somebody?
  • 00:06:49.290 --> 00:06:51.190
  • Prayer is so important to God.
  • 00:06:51.210 --> 00:06:54.210
  • Now, get this, now prayer is so
  • 00:06:54.210 --> 00:06:55.270
  • important to God that he named
  • 00:06:55.270 --> 00:06:58.040
  • his house the house of prayer.
  • 00:06:58.040 --> 00:07:01.050
  • He named it baby prayer.
  • 00:07:01.050 --> 00:07:03.280
  • We're his children.
  • 00:07:03.280 --> 00:07:04.200
  • He said, "My children,
  • 00:07:04.200 --> 00:07:05.110
  • called praying people."
  • 00:07:07.190 --> 00:07:09.290
  • Saint Matthew 21:13, "And he
  • 00:07:09.290 --> 00:07:12.010
  • said unto them, 'It is written
  • 00:07:12.010 --> 00:07:13.160
  • my house shall be called the
  • 00:07:13.160 --> 00:07:15.230
  • house of prayer, but you have
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:17.190
  • made it a den of thieves.'"
  • 00:07:17.190 --> 00:07:20.150
  • This is the house of prayer,
  • 00:07:20.150 --> 00:07:21.160
  • and I've been threatening
  • 00:07:21.160 --> 00:07:22.120
  • in my heart because you know
  • 00:07:22.120 --> 00:07:23.100
  • I need to change the name
  • 00:07:23.100 --> 00:07:24.220
  • of this church to
  • 00:07:24.220 --> 00:07:25.120
  • Compton Prayer Center, or
  • 00:07:25.120 --> 00:07:26.100
  • something like that,
  • 00:07:26.100 --> 00:07:27.010
  • amen to God?
  • 00:07:27.010 --> 00:07:28.150
  • Because that's what we do up in
  • 00:07:28.150 --> 00:07:29.140
  • here, we pray in here.
  • 00:07:29.140 --> 00:07:31.010
  • Turn to your neighbor and say,
  • 00:07:31.010 --> 00:07:31.250
  • "This is a praying church."
  • 00:07:31.250 --> 00:07:34.150
  • You may not be praying,
  • 00:07:34.150 --> 00:07:36.020
  • but your pastor's praying.
  • 00:07:36.020 --> 00:07:38.180
  • I'm a praying man.
  • 00:07:38.180 --> 00:07:40.090
  • I'm praying.
  • 00:07:40.090 --> 00:07:41.040
  • I was praying last night.
  • 00:07:41.040 --> 00:07:42.060
  • My wife came back, she came
  • 00:07:42.060 --> 00:07:43.170
  • home, I was upstairs in my room
  • 00:07:43.170 --> 00:07:44.230
  • sitting there praying,
  • 00:07:44.230 --> 00:07:46.240
  • and I do it all the time.
  • 00:07:46.240 --> 00:07:47.220
  • She don't pay me no attention.
  • 00:07:47.220 --> 00:07:48.140
  • She ain't going
  • 00:07:48.140 --> 00:07:49.060
  • to come on do it, she going
  • 00:07:49.060 --> 00:07:50.000
  • to go about her business.
  • 00:07:50.000 --> 00:07:52.230
  • When my kids are real small,
  • 00:07:52.230 --> 00:07:53.270
  • they running around
  • 00:07:53.270 --> 00:07:54.210
  • praying--playing,
  • 00:07:54.210 --> 00:07:55.270
  • and I was praying, because
  • 00:07:55.270 --> 00:07:57.240
  • I needed God to help me.
  • 00:07:57.240 --> 00:08:00.250
  • I said I needed God to help me,
  • 00:08:00.250 --> 00:08:02.030
  • and I need God
  • 00:08:02.030 --> 00:08:03.070
  • to help me right now.
  • 00:08:03.070 --> 00:08:05.090
  • So, ain't no point
  • 00:08:05.090 --> 00:08:06.010
  • in me acting no fool.
  • 00:08:06.010 --> 00:08:07.260
  • The only one who
  • 00:08:07.260 --> 00:08:08.210
  • can really help me is God.
  • 00:08:08.210 --> 00:08:10.140
  • You may love me and want to help
  • 00:08:10.140 --> 00:08:11.250
  • me, but you can't help me.
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:13.090
  • What I need,
  • 00:08:13.090 --> 00:08:14.270
  • only God can give it to me.
  • 00:08:14.270 --> 00:08:17.030
  • in calling on God.
  • 00:08:19.180 --> 00:08:20.290
  • How many know God--that you need
  • 00:08:20.290 --> 00:08:21.230
  • God to help you?
  • 00:08:21.230 --> 00:08:23.260
  • Well, raise your right hand and
  • 00:08:23.260 --> 00:08:25.040
  • say, "I need God to help me."
  • 00:08:26.070 --> 00:08:29.070
  • Glory to God.
  • 00:08:29.070 --> 00:08:31.080
  • Prayer is so important that if
  • 00:08:31.080 --> 00:08:34.020
  • you don't pray, you will faint.
  • 00:08:34.170 --> 00:08:37.170
  • And he spake a parable
  • 00:08:37.170 --> 00:08:38.290
  • in Luke 18:1,
  • 00:08:38.290 --> 00:08:40.130
  • "And he spake a parable
  • 00:08:40.130 --> 00:08:41.230
  • unto them to this end, that men
  • 00:08:41.230 --> 00:08:44.080
  • ought always to pray
  • 00:08:44.080 --> 00:08:46.110
  • and not to faint."
  • 00:08:46.110 --> 00:08:48.190
  • Men, that goes
  • 00:08:48.190 --> 00:08:49.280
  • for you women too.
  • 00:08:49.280 --> 00:08:51.080
  • You are always
  • 00:08:51.080 --> 00:08:52.200
  • to pray and not to faint.
  • 00:08:52.200 --> 00:08:54.200
  • The word "faint" in the Greek
  • 00:08:54.200 --> 00:08:57.180
  • means not to lose heart when we
  • 00:08:57.260 --> 00:09:00.280
  • come into difficulties, and that
  • 00:09:00.280 --> 00:09:03.230
  • we are to not give up on prayer
  • 00:09:04.060 --> 00:09:07.060
  • when the answer is delayed.
  • 00:09:07.060 --> 00:09:10.030
  • You're going to get in trouble
  • 00:09:10.030 --> 00:09:11.050
  • in life, trust me.
  • 00:09:11.050 --> 00:09:12.220
  • Things are not going
  • 00:09:12.220 --> 00:09:13.150
  • to go well all the time.
  • 00:09:13.150 --> 00:09:15.140
  • There's some bumps in the road.
  • 00:09:15.140 --> 00:09:17.200
  • There's some trouble up
  • 00:09:17.200 --> 00:09:19.030
  • ahead for you.
  • 00:09:19.030 --> 00:09:20.120
  • And when you least expect it,
  • 00:09:20.120 --> 00:09:22.030
  • the devil will jump up and start
  • 00:09:22.030 --> 00:09:23.240
  • some trouble in your life.
  • 00:09:23.240 --> 00:09:24.190
  • about that thing and pray
  • 00:09:26.200 --> 00:09:28.130
  • about it, keep on praying about
  • 00:09:28.130 --> 00:09:29.220
  • it so you won't fall out,
  • 00:09:29.220 --> 00:09:32.030
  • so you won't quit God.
  • 00:09:32.030 --> 00:09:34.080
  • A lot of folks started out with
  • 00:09:34.080 --> 00:09:35.090
  • God, and when things
  • 00:09:35.090 --> 00:09:36.180
  • got rough, they quit.
  • 00:09:36.180 --> 00:09:38.120
  • But I want the devil to know--if
  • 00:09:38.120 --> 00:09:39.220
  • you know the devil, you tell him
  • 00:09:39.220 --> 00:09:40.140
  • I said,
  • 00:09:40.140 --> 00:09:41.240
  • "Ain't no quitting Ron Hill."
  • 00:09:41.240 --> 00:09:43.290
  • If I may never do nothing else,
  • 00:09:43.290 --> 00:09:45.230
  • but I'm going to pray,
  • 00:09:45.230 --> 00:09:46.180
  • bless God.
  • 00:09:46.180 --> 00:09:48.190
  • I said I may not do anything
  • 00:09:48.190 --> 00:09:49.220
  • else, but I'm going to pray
  • 00:09:49.220 --> 00:09:51.280
  • because I know that
  • 00:09:51.280 --> 00:09:53.020
  • prayer changes things.
  • 00:09:53.020 --> 00:09:55.240
  • How do I know?
  • 00:09:55.240 --> 00:09:56.140
  • It changed things in my life.
  • 00:09:56.140 --> 00:09:58.140
  • When I was broke, bound,
  • 00:09:58.140 --> 00:09:59.250
  • and in the background, I kept on
  • 00:09:59.250 --> 00:10:01.280
  • saying, "Father, in the name of
  • 00:10:01.280 --> 00:10:04.080
  • Jesus, I need you to help me.

  • 00:10:23.290 --> 00:10:24.200
  • what he done for me.

  • 00:10:26.070 --> 00:10:27.150
  • the same God for you.
  • 00:10:27.150 --> 00:10:29.110

  • 00:13:31.120 --> 00:13:32.170
  • Sometimes you could--when I was
  • 00:13:32.170 --> 00:13:33.190
  • in the world--when I was in the
  • 00:13:33.190 --> 00:13:35.030
  • world, some guys,
  • 00:13:35.030 --> 00:13:36.000
  • you get in a fight with them,
  • 00:13:36.000 --> 00:13:37.060
  • and you be fighting them,
  • 00:13:37.060 --> 00:13:38.150
  • and they just drop their hands.
  • 00:13:38.150 --> 00:13:39.170
  • I didn't like fighting guys
  • 00:13:39.170 --> 00:13:40.110
  • like that.
  • 00:13:40.110 --> 00:13:41.150
  • Don't nobody want
  • 00:13:41.150 --> 00:13:42.050
  • to beat you to death.
  • 00:13:42.050 --> 00:13:42.250
  • Boy, put your dukes up, man.
  • 00:13:43.110 --> 00:13:46.110
  • Don't you drop your arms,
  • 00:13:46.110 --> 00:13:47.110
  • keep them up there.
  • 00:13:47.110 --> 00:13:49.100
  • Amen, amen.
  • 00:13:49.100 --> 00:13:51.250
  • As we persist in prayer,
  • 00:13:51.250 --> 00:13:54.200
  • we will grow in character,
  • 00:13:54.200 --> 00:13:57.040
  • faith, and hope.
  • 00:13:57.040 --> 00:13:58.220
  • See, when you--when you got to
  • 00:13:58.220 --> 00:14:00.120
  • wait a long time--and I waited
  • 00:14:00.120 --> 00:14:02.090
  • for things a long time.
  • 00:14:02.090 --> 00:14:03.280
  • And when you get to waiting,
  • 00:14:03.280 --> 00:14:05.140
  • say, "You know what, God?
  • 00:14:05.140 --> 00:14:06.120
  • I don't know why you ain't doing
  • 00:14:06.120 --> 00:14:07.070
  • this, but I ain't going nowhere.
  • 00:14:07.070 --> 00:14:09.280
  • You're going to have to either
  • 00:14:09.280 --> 00:14:11.040
  • do it for me, or you have to
  • 00:14:11.040 --> 00:14:12.170
  • tell me why not, because uh-uh,
  • 00:14:12.170 --> 00:14:14.150
  • no, no, I ain't even trying
  • 00:14:14.150 --> 00:14:15.210
  • to go over that.
  • 00:14:15.210 --> 00:14:16.130
  • I need you to help me.
  • 00:14:16.130 --> 00:14:17.240
  • And if you ain't going to help
  • 00:14:17.240 --> 00:14:18.220
  • me, then why not?"
  • 00:14:18.220 --> 00:14:20.220
  • Raise your right hand and say,
  • 00:14:20.220 --> 00:14:22.030
  • "God, if you're not going to
  • 00:14:22.030 --> 00:14:23.090
  • help me, you need
  • 00:14:23.090 --> 00:14:25.090
  • to tell me why not."
  • 00:14:25.090 --> 00:14:27.290
  • You tell me something,
  • 00:14:28.010 --> 00:14:31.010
  • tell me something good.
  • 00:14:33.070 --> 00:14:36.070
  • You heard what I said.
  • 00:14:36.070 --> 00:14:38.050
  • In other words,
  • 00:14:38.050 --> 00:14:39.140
  • "God, listen, listen, listen,
  • 00:14:39.140 --> 00:14:41.050
  • you know I need you.
  • 00:14:41.050 --> 00:14:43.010
  • If I didn't need you, I wouldn't
  • 00:14:43.010 --> 00:14:44.060
  • be coming and talking to you.
  • 00:14:44.060 --> 00:14:46.070
  • And if I didn't believe
  • 00:14:46.070 --> 00:14:47.160
  • you was going to do it,
  • 00:14:47.160 --> 00:14:48.130
  • I wouldn't be talking to you.
  • 00:14:48.130 --> 00:14:49.290
  • And if you ain't going to do it,
  • 00:14:49.290 --> 00:14:50.180
  • you need to tell me why not.
  • 00:14:50.180 --> 00:14:51.070
  • tell me why you ain't going to
  • 00:14:53.130 --> 00:14:54.280
  • do it so I can get myself lined
  • 00:14:54.280 --> 00:14:56.220
  • up with you because
  • 00:14:56.220 --> 00:14:57.220
  • I got to have some help here.
  • 00:14:57.220 --> 00:15:00.060
  • I don't know how
  • 00:15:00.060 --> 00:15:00.270
  • to get out of this.
  • 00:15:00.270 --> 00:15:02.280
  • I don't have the power
  • 00:15:02.280 --> 00:15:03.200
  • to get out of this.
  • 00:15:03.200 --> 00:15:05.120
  • But you got all power.
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:07.200
  • And so, I'm going to call on you
  • 00:15:07.200 --> 00:15:08.240
  • until you do something for me.
  • 00:15:08.240 --> 00:15:11.060
  • Say amen, somebody.
  • 00:15:11.200 --> 00:15:14.200
  • Isaiah 40:29.
  • 00:15:14.200 --> 00:15:16.240
  • "He give his power to the faint;
  • 00:15:16.280 --> 00:15:19.280
  • and to them that have no might
  • 00:15:19.280 --> 00:15:22.030
  • See, he'll give--he'll give you
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:25.270
  • power when you get weak,
  • 00:15:25.270 --> 00:15:27.100
  • when you get weak.
  • 00:15:27.100 --> 00:15:28.050
  • When you get weak, you call on
  • 00:15:28.050 --> 00:15:29.130
  • God, he'll strengthen you.
  • 00:15:29.130 --> 00:15:31.230
  • I've been in situations in
  • 00:15:31.230 --> 00:15:32.220
  • my life when everything
  • 00:15:32.220 --> 00:15:33.290
  • was going bad around me.
  • 00:15:33.290 --> 00:15:35.250
  • And so, I go get me some place
  • 00:15:35.250 --> 00:15:37.030
  • to pray, and I get before God,
  • 00:15:37.030 --> 00:15:39.200
  • and I begin to call on God,
  • 00:15:39.200 --> 00:15:41.090
  • and begin to call on God.
  • 00:15:41.090 --> 00:15:42.210
  • And now, you give me strength.
  • 00:15:42.210 --> 00:15:45.190
  • I came out of my prayer closet,
  • 00:15:45.190 --> 00:15:47.040
  • Everything was still the same,
  • 00:15:49.130 --> 00:15:51.110
  • nothing had changed,
  • 00:15:51.110 --> 00:15:52.150
  • but I had changed on the inside.
  • 00:15:55.000 --> 00:15:58.000
  • See, you can pray until God can
  • 00:16:00.020 --> 00:16:03.020
  • so fix you on the inside,
  • 00:16:03.020 --> 00:16:05.000

  • 00:16:09.010 --> 00:16:12.010
  • The things that used to trouble
  • 00:16:12.010 --> 00:16:13.050
  • you won't trouble you no more.
  • 00:16:13.130 --> 00:16:16.130
  • See, when I found out about God,
  • 00:16:16.130 --> 00:16:18.140
  • sometimes God would
  • 00:16:18.140 --> 00:16:20.150
  • leave you in a situation.

  • you that you're in it,

  • be surrounded by folks who don't

  • You ain't lost your mind, but
  • 00:17:05.070 --> 00:17:06.260

  • put character in you.
  • 00:17:08.290 --> 00:17:10.280
  • He's using them devils so you
  • 00:17:10.280 --> 00:17:12.120
  • can stand up in the face of
  • 00:17:12.120 --> 00:17:14.270
  • opposition and not be broken.
  • 00:17:14.280 --> 00:17:17.280
  • If you know I'm right,
  • 00:17:17.280 --> 00:17:18.210
  • give God a praise in here.

  • to destroy me.
  • 00:17:30.280 --> 00:17:31.240
  • I mean big leaders.
  • 00:17:31.240 --> 00:17:32.240
  • If I call their names, you would
  • 00:17:32.240 --> 00:17:33.160
  • to destroy my character, who
  • 00:17:35.180 --> 00:17:38.030
  • tried to destroy my reputation,
  • 00:17:38.030 --> 00:17:40.260
  • but I kept on praying.
  • 00:17:42.010 --> 00:17:45.010
  • And some of them are not going
  • 00:17:45.010 --> 00:17:46.120
  • down, and I'm still going up.
  • 00:17:48.170 --> 00:17:51.170
  • Because if you stand up,
  • 00:17:51.170 --> 00:17:53.130
  • you're going down.
  • 00:17:53.130 --> 00:17:54.290
  • But if you're going down, he'll
  • 00:17:54.290 --> 00:17:56.170
  • lift you up because he said in
  • 00:17:56.170 --> 00:17:59.150
  • his Word humbled thyself
  • 00:17:59.260 --> 00:18:02.280

  • And in due season, in due

  • season, I said in due season.
  • 00:18:17.070 --> 00:18:20.070
  • See, a lot of folks don't get
  • 00:18:20.070 --> 00:18:21.040
  • their blessing because they
  • 00:18:21.040 --> 00:18:23.170
  • don't want to go
  • 00:18:23.170 --> 00:18:24.150
  • through due season.
  • 00:18:24.150 --> 00:18:27.130
  • Because in due season,
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:29.160
  • he's working on your soul.
  • 00:18:29.160 --> 00:18:31.230

  • he's sanctifying your spirit.
  • 00:18:33.240 --> 00:18:36.080

  • show you that where I'm going to
  • 00:18:38.260 --> 00:18:41.100
  • take you, you can't take
  • 00:18:41.100 --> 00:18:43.100
  • that mess with you.
  • 00:18:43.100 --> 00:18:45.080
  • You got to be consecrated, you
  • 00:18:45.080 --> 00:18:47.160

  • said, "they that wait upon the

  • get ourselves in agreement
  • 00:23:42.040 --> 00:23:43.230
  • with the Word of God.

  • That's right, say,
  • 00:25:00.020 --> 00:25:00.250
  • "Heavenly Father,
  • 00:25:00.250 --> 00:25:03.020
  • I know that I'm a sinner,
  • 00:25:03.020 --> 00:25:05.180

  • 00:25:06.190 --> 00:25:08.140
  • I believe Jesus Christ
  • 00:25:08.140 --> 00:25:10.280
  • is the Son of God.
  • 00:25:10.280 --> 00:25:13.100
  • I believe he died on the cross

  • for my sins.
  • 00:25:15.030 --> 00:25:17.080
  • I believe he arose from

  • the dead on the third day.
  • 00:25:18.090 --> 00:25:20.280
  • I now repent of my sins, and I
  • 00:25:21.220 --> 00:25:24.220
  • open my heart, and I receive the
  • 00:25:25.260 --> 00:25:28.260
  • Lord Jesus Christ into
  • 00:25:28.260 --> 00:25:31.050
