Continuing in our current collection of talks, Shift, Pastor Louie challenges how we come before God in prayer. As he breaks down the many requests we put before God out of habit and religion, he instead encourages us to pray out of a desire to have a close relationship with the creator of the universe and remix our ritualistic prayers. VERSES // Matthew 5:4,6:5-8,10, Ephesians 1:3, Genesis 49:22-26, Galatians 2:20, Acts 4:29-30, Colossians 2:13-14
Alignment and Authority
In our current collection of talks titled, ‘SHIFT,’ Pastor Louie challenges the idea that so many people hold: “My prayers don’t work.” He responds to this thought by directing our House to try realigning our will with the will of God, praying through Scripture, knowing it is God’s will on a tangible page, and praying bold, offensive prayers. VERSES // 1 John 4:14-15; Acts 1:8; 4:20-28; Ephesians 4:32; 1 Thessalonians 5:17; Revelation 21:4
Faith That Captures the Attention of Heaven
“If God already knows everything, then why pray?” Pastor Louie answers this question by encouraging our House to take heart, teaching that it moves the heart of God when prayer is bold and faith-filled. Our prayers have the power to surround His throne like incense. VERSES // Psalm 115:3; 139:4; Job 42:2; Matthew 17:20; Luke 7:1-10; John 12:23-28; Acts 4; Revelation 5
How Do I Pray?
Pastor Louie wraps up our current collection of talks, SHIFT, focusing on how you pray. When we pray, he encourages us to make it personal, lead with praise, ask for alignment, tell Him our needs, clear the air, acquaint ourselves with His word, embrace the silence, and have a heart of gratitude. VERSES // John 5:19, John 8:38, 1 Thessalonians 5:18, 1 Thessalonians 5:24, Psalm 46
