Why Pray?

Because I Have Been Redeemed and Forgiven All My Sins!

“… in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”
Colossians 1:14

I’d like to give you share with you some famous quotes about prayer.  I will let you look up who they are.

And Satan trembles when he sees, the weakest saint upon his knees. – William Cowper

When a Christian shuns fellowship with other Christians, the devil smiles. When he stops studying the Bible, the devil laughs. When he stops praying, the devil shouts for joy. – Corrie Ten Boom

The Prince of the power of the air seems to bend all the force of his attack against the spirit of prayer. – Andrew Bonar

When the devil sees a man or woman who really believes in prayer, who knows how to pray, and who really does pray, and, above all, when he sees a whole church on its face before God in prayer, he trembles as much as he ever did, for he knows that his day in that church or community is at an end. – R.A. Torrey

Why have I included all these quotes on “The Power of Prayer”?  Because satan and his servants will do anything they can to keep us from praying… including the use of “guilt and shame” to keep us from praying.  As the Apostle John wrote in his first letter:

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” – 1 John 1:9”

Why Pray?

Because, through confession before God, THERE IS NO GUILT OR SHAME to keep us from enjoying and rejoicing in God’s Presence through prayer… BECAUSE we have “the forgiveness of sins.”

One last quote… not sure where it comes from:

When satan reminds you of your past, remind satan of his future!

Sincerely Yours in Christ,
Pastor Denny
