IMPERFECT #5
“Prayer-less”
Matthew 26:36-46 / March 3, 2019

Something’s comin’…don’t know what or when…but Jesus does, and he’s prayin’

FIND A PLACE – “…to a place called Gethsemane…”

INVITE OTHERS INTO YOUR SOUL’S PAIN – “my soul is very sorrowful” (see Psalm 75:8; Isaiah 51:17,20,21,22; Jeremiah 25:15-16; Revelation 14:10; Hebrews 2:18 & 4:15)

ASK OTHERS TO WATCH WITH YOU – “taking with him…watch with me…” 

START WITH RELATIONSHIP – “my Father” (Mark 14:36, Matthew 6:9, Romans 8:26)

SEEK POSSIBILITIES WHILE YIELDING TO THE FATHER’S WILL – “if it is possible…thy will be done…” (Matthew 6:13, 7:7-11)

PRAY THAT YOU ENTER NOT INTO TEMPTATION – “the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak” (Matthew 6:13)

FACE THE HOUR AT HAND – “rise, let us be going, my betrayer is at hand” (Luke 22:43, John 18:6)
Prayer Requests:
  • At least once a day this week pray: “my Father”, “your will be done”, and “lead me not into temptation”.
  • Pray for the three people you know who are outside of relationship with Jesus.  Pray for God to draw them to his Son Jesus.  Pray for the Spirit to move in their heart.  Pray for courage to invite them to church. 
  • Pray for the harvest of souls as we head into the Easter season.  Pray that thousands of invitations will be given and hundreds will respond.  Pray for baptism Sunday, April 14th - “Your sins are forgiven” and Easter Sunday, “Not dead”.
  • Pray for our Welcome Home Haiti team that is currently in Haiti building another home for those we are serving there.
