Sermon Notes

   This is the third message in our series Life Changing Prayer relating to our small group study by Jim Cymbala. We are going to look at a few keys to answered prayer or a few conditions typically necessary in order for our prayers to be answered.

   There are a number of things that can hinder our prayers from being answered from God. We will also address Matthew 7:7-8 where Jesus challenges God’s people to “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.”

   Some see this as an unconditional promise that we can ask God for anything and He will give it to us. But it must be understood in the light of other Biblical teaching on prayer. It must also be understood in the context in which it was written.
