The Elements of Effective Prayer
Nehemiah 1:4-5

 

Nehemiah was the king’s cup-bearer. His people was in exile. The walls remained un-repaired and the people unprotected. The city was in ruins.
Nehemiah got permission to rebuild the wall. He had opposition from within and without, but he persevered to get the city rebuilt.

Impossible tasks are possible for God! Put God in the beginning before the end.

When you have great opportunity, you will always have great opposition. Pray and seek the face of God.

Your prayer should
1. Praise God – give God praise for who He is!
2. Engage in Thanksgiving – thank God for your current situation!
3. Have a Spirit of Repentance – Repent!
4. Have Commitment – Be committed!

Trusting In God
Job 13:15

 

Trust in God in whatever you are going through and you will get through.

Job was opened to Satan because he lived a life that was pleasing to God.
Job responded to criticism from family and friends, but he never lost his faith.
His faith and trust in God made him what and where he was at this point in his life.

Don’t lose you faith in the midst of what you are going through.

When you are:
Broken by Pain
Burden by Pressures
Bothered by People
Bewildered by Problems
You need to trust God completely and you will be blessed.

We go through things to bring us to a place to have absolute trust in God.

Live God’s way and Apply His principles to your life!
You will be able to get through it, Make it out of it and withstand it because of your trust in God!

Self-Deception
James 1:12-16

The enemy is not always your biggest problem. Sometimes it’s the battle within yourself. We make wrong choices and bad decisions. It’s always easy to blame others for your wrong thoughts and deeds.

Stop blaming others and accept responsibility for your wrong deeds and action; then ask God for forgiveness. If you don’t you are living a life of self-deception!

We reap because of what we have sown! Stop making excuses!

In order to avoid pitfalls and walking in deception:
1. Accept responsibility for your wrong doings
2. Learn how to confess them; own up to what you did on your own
3. Ask God for forgiveness

You are drawn away from God’s will by your own doing. You have more of you in you that God in you.

Deal with you! You have to give account unto God for the things you chose to do.

Live a life with purpose!

Pastor Dr. Jonathan T. Phillips, Jr.

Powerful Prayer
Acts 12:5

In this passage we see Peter was in jail. The church prayed for him. They prayed continually and as one. While the church prayed God was moving!

Powerful prayer is heard by God and answered. If you don’t believe then no need to pray. Prayer is heard by God and He moves on our behalf.

In order to have Powerful Prayer, you need to
1. Learn how to pray together. (Be on one accord)
2. Learn how to pray specifically. (Let God know what you want)
3. Learn to pray consistently.

When you pray God should know your voice. Therefore, pray so He will know who you are. Engage in powerful prayer!

Rev. Dr. Jonathan T. Phillips, Jr.

March Madness
A Reason to Rejoice
Romans 5:1-5

Be joyful about your relationship with God!

With all that’s going on, it’s hard sometimes but we need to keep things in perspective. As Christians we should not look at things as the world does. We have something to rejoice about!

Every problem has a purpose! As Christians our problems have a new perspective and purpose. Our problems do not defeat us or hold us down. Our trials and tribulations are purposeful. There is a reason why God let’s us go through. There is a good purpose for every problem that God allows us to experience; not that the experience is good but the purpose is.

Every problem has a purpose:
1. ..we learn to keep things in the right perspective
2. ..our problems help develop our perseverance: strengthening us and deepen our trust in God
3. ..God allows us to go through so we a greater confidence about our future!

God has a watchful eye. He will not allow more than we can bear. God is developing us! Do not allow your problems to pressure you, but they should help you grow closer to God!

Rev. Dr. Jonathan T. Phillips, Jr.

Romans 5:-1-2
Reasons For Rejoicing

1…because your sins are forgiven!
2…because of being justified (just as if).  The blood of Jesus covers you.
3…because you have peace with God. You have access by faith into God’s grace.  You are bought with a price. You have peace because you are complete in Christ and you grow daily in Christ. You strive everyday to be closer to Him!
4…because you can freely enter into God’s presence that once was forbidden. You now have regular access to him as often as you want.

Materialistic/earthly things will pass away but the peace of God is eternal!

Hope is having confident expectations. You are sure God will do what he said and what He promised in His time not ours.

A relationship with God is “priceless”! There is nothing that compares!

 

Be Blessed!

Rev. Dr. Jonathan T. Phillips, Jr.

Expect the Unexpected
Genesis 21:5-7

When God makes you a promise, hold fast and trust that He will bring it to pass.

In the lesson Sarah was of age and barren. But God made a promise to her and Abraham. He didn’t say when but it would come to pass.

In 2018 you do not know when and you do not know where but you know God will do what he said. In your waiting process don’t be the person that ruins or mess up what you have been praying about.

Abraham stepped in and did things his own way and listen to others. But God! Abraham was told he would be Father of all nations. God did what He promised.

When you move when God has not spoken:
1. You will run your own success.
2. You will need to resist your Satanic attack!

Don’t get impatient. Be bold and wait on God!

Pastor Phillips
