Do We Pray?

Luke 11:1 (NLT)
Once Jesus was in a certain place praying. As he finished, one of his disciples came to him and said, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
– Why did the disciples ask Jesus this request? 
– Why not ask to walk on the water or raise the dead? Why not ask Jesus to teach something more spectacular or more powerful?
– What was so impressive about the prayer life of Jesus that this was the only written request of the disciples?

Is God Enough?

Psalm 73:1-5  (NCV)   “God is truly good to Israel, to those who have pure hearts.  But I had almost stopped believing; I had almost lost my faith because I was envious of proud people.  I saw wicked people doing well.  They are not suffering; they are healthy and strong.  They don’t have troubles like the rest of us; they don’t have problems like the rest of us.”

Healthy Spiritual Relationships

1. Begin with a Focus on Pleasing God First
2 Corinthians 5:7-10 (AMP)
For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight or appearance. [Yes] we have confident and hopeful courage and are pleased rather to be away from home out of the body and be at home with the Lord. Therefore, whether we are at home [on earth away from Him] or away from home [and with Him], we are constantly ambitious and strive earnestly to be pleasing to Him. For we must all appear and be revealed as we are before the judgement seat of Christ, so that each one may receive [his pay] according to what he has done in the body, whether good or evil [considering what his purpose and motive have been, and what he has achieved, been busy with, and given himself and his attention to accomplishing].
