  • When you read the bible, that's god talking to you.
  • 00:05:22.468 --> 00:05:24.504

  • And somebody intruding. that's why jesus said,
  • 00:06:00.006 --> 00:06:01.407
  • That's why jesus said, "when you pray,
  • 00:06:01.474 --> 00:06:02.575
  • "when you pray, go into a closet,
  • 00:06:02.642 --> 00:06:03.643
  • Go into a closet, a solitary place is all
  • 00:06:03.709 --> 00:06:05.111
  • A solitary place is all that he's saying.
  • 00:06:05.178 --> 00:06:06.045
  • That he's saying. the word closet is found four
  • 00:06:06.112 --> 00:06:07.113
  • The word closet is found four times in the new testament,
  • 00:06:07.180 --> 00:06:08.381
  • Times in the new testament, and it literally means a secret
  • 00:06:08.448 --> 00:06:09.715
  • And it literally means a secret place, a secret chamber,
  • 00:06:09.782 --> 00:06:11.117
  • Place, a secret chamber, a secret, a private place.
  • 00:06:11.184 --> 00:06:13.219
  • A secret, a private place. a place of privacy.
  • 00:06:13.286 --> 00:06:14.687
  • A place of privacy. go into that place
  • 00:06:14.754 --> 00:06:16.088
  • Go into that place and he says these words,

  • You don't have much of a prayer life."
  • 00:07:33.900 --> 00:07:35.902
  • Of a prayer life." because life runs on schedules.
  • 00:07:35.968 --> 00:07:40.439
  • Because life runs on schedules. you don't go to work
  • 00:07:40.506 --> 00:07:41.574
  • You don't go to work when you feel like it.

  • And you may alter that every once in a while,
  • 00:07:49.382 --> 00:07:49.982
  • Every once in a while, but pretty much,
  • 00:07:50.049 --> 00:07:50.716
  • But pretty much, you're on a pretty tight
  • 00:07:50.783 --> 00:07:51.651
  • You're on a pretty tight schedule with everything

  • Schedule with everything in your life except prayer,
  • 00:07:52.919 --> 00:07:55.721
  • In your life except prayer, because it's not that big
  • 00:07:55.788 --> 00:07:56.722
  • Because it's not that big of a deal to you.
  • 00:07:56.789 --> 00:07:59.625
  • Of a deal to you. but you know,

  • 00:08:04.463 --> 00:08:05.865
  • How many of you ever go to work, and sometimes you just
  • 00:08:05.932 --> 00:08:06.599
  • And sometimes you just don't feel like going?
  • 00:08:06.666 --> 00:08:10.770
  • Don't feel like going? i'll join you on that one.
  • 00:08:10.836 --> 00:08:12.471
  • I'll join you on that one. but you know what i've learned?
  • 00:08:12.538 --> 00:08:14.440
  • But you know what i've learned? it's god, god says,
  • 00:08:14.507 --> 00:08:15.775
  • It's god, god says, "there's times when
  • 00:08:15.841 --> 00:08:16.709
  • "there's times when you're highly fired up,
  • 00:08:16.776 --> 00:08:18.477
  • You're highly fired up, excited about going to work,
  • 00:08:18.544 --> 00:08:19.879
  • Excited about going to work, and all into it,
  • 00:08:19.946 --> 00:08:21.447
  • And all into it, and then there's times you
  • 00:08:21.514 --> 00:08:22.615
  • And then there's times you just gotta go cause,
  • 00:08:22.682 --> 00:08:23.616
  • Just gotta go cause, you gotta go.
  • 00:08:23.683 --> 00:08:24.784
  • You gotta go. you know what,
  • 00:08:24.850 --> 00:08:25.851
  • You know what, you get paid either way.
  • 00:08:25.918 --> 00:08:29.288
  • You get paid either way. and that's how prayer is.
  • 00:08:29.355 --> 00:08:30.590
  • And that's how prayer is. god says, if you show up
  • 00:08:30.656 --> 00:08:31.991
  • God says, if you show up with the time of prayer,
  • 00:08:32.058 --> 00:08:33.693
  • With the time of prayer, and you put the time in,
  • 00:08:33.759 --> 00:08:34.961
  • And you put the time in, even if you don't feel it,
  • 00:08:35.027 --> 00:08:36.095
  • Even if you don't feel it, and you just walk in there
  • 00:08:36.162 --> 00:08:36.929
  • And you just walk in there and you're kinda mumbling.
  • 00:08:36.996 --> 00:08:38.831
  • And you're kinda mumbling. "in jesus' name."
  • 00:08:38.898 --> 00:08:41.000
  • "in jesus' name." "in jesus' name."
  • 00:08:41.067 --> 00:08:43.469
  • "in jesus' name." "my father who art in heaven,
  • 00:08:43.536 --> 00:08:44.303
  • "my father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
  • 00:08:44.370 --> 00:08:45.037
  • Hallowed be thy name. thy kingdom come,
  • 00:08:45.104 --> 00:08:45.671
  • Thy kingdom come, thy will be done."
  • 00:08:45.738 --> 00:08:46.272
  • Thy will be done." and you sound
  • 00:08:46.339 --> 00:08:47.506
  • And you sound like an auctioneer.
  • 00:08:47.573 --> 00:08:48.374
  • Like an auctioneer. but it doesn't matter.
  • 00:08:48.441 --> 00:08:49.575
  • But it doesn't matter. it doesn't matter.
  • 00:08:49.642 --> 00:08:50.443
  • It doesn't matter. because if you just show up,
  • 00:08:50.509 --> 00:08:52.244
  • Because if you just show up, you get paid
  • 00:08:52.311 --> 00:08:53.012
  • You get paid in the prayer place.
  • 00:08:53.079 --> 00:08:57.583
  • In the prayer place. the greatest miracles
  • 00:08:57.650 --> 00:08:58.751
  • The greatest miracles in the bible happened a nine
  • 00:08:58.818 --> 00:09:00.052
  • In the bible happened a nine in the morning or three
  • 00:09:00.119 --> 00:09:01.120

  • Which was called the evening prayer,
  • 00:09:11.397 --> 00:09:12.231
  • The evening prayer, because they didn't have
  • 00:09:12.298 --> 00:09:12.898
  • Because they didn't have electricity.
  • 00:09:12.965 --> 00:09:14.033
  • Electricity. and they had to offer

  • It all had to be done very, very, it took hours and hours.
  • 00:09:21.574 --> 00:09:23.309
  • Very, it took hours and hours. but the point is this.
  • 00:09:23.376 --> 00:09:25.344
  • But the point is this. they prayed and god honored it,

  • To share with you. i've done it for 40 years.
  • 00:12:34.166 --> 00:12:37.937
  • I've done it for 40 years. i read a book by dr. larry lee
  • 00:12:38.003 --> 00:12:40.739
  • I read a book by dr. larry lee called "the lord's prayer."
  • 00:12:40.806 --> 00:12:43.709
  • Called "the lord's prayer." and then recently,
  • 00:12:43.776 --> 00:12:45.411
  • And then recently, dr. bob rogers
  • 00:12:45.477 --> 00:12:47.580
  • Dr. bob rogers "little book on prayer."
  • 00:12:47.646 --> 00:12:50.082
  • "little book on prayer." so ignited me again,
  • 00:12:50.149 --> 00:12:52.418
  • So ignited me again, but i have prayed
  • 00:12:52.484 --> 00:12:53.652
  • But i have prayed the lord's prayer all my life
  • 00:12:53.719 --> 00:12:56.422
  • The lord's prayer all my life since i've been saved.
  • 00:12:56.488 --> 00:12:57.423
  • Since i've been saved. now, i want you to see,
  • 00:12:57.489 --> 00:12:58.357
  • Now, i want you to see, it's divided into
  • 00:12:58.424 --> 00:12:59.758
  • It's divided into six categories.
  • 00:12:59.825 --> 00:13:01.627
  • Six categories. and this is what it looks like.
  • 00:13:01.694 --> 00:13:04.396
  • And this is what it looks like. when you start praying,
  • 00:13:04.463 --> 00:13:05.931
  • When you start praying, if you don't get
  • 00:13:05.998 --> 00:13:06.632
  • If you don't get a pattern of prayer,
  • 00:13:06.699 --> 00:13:07.700
  • A pattern of prayer, you will not pray.
  • 00:13:07.766 --> 00:13:08.701
  • You will not pray. the reason some of you don't
  • 00:13:08.767 --> 00:13:09.835
  • The reason some of you don't pray is not cause you're bad.
  • 00:13:09.902 --> 00:13:11.103
  • Pray is not cause you're bad. you don't know how,
  • 00:13:11.170 --> 00:13:11.871
  • You don't know how, and i get it.
  • 00:13:11.937 --> 00:13:12.538
  • And i get it. you don't know how to pray.
  • 00:13:12.605 --> 00:13:14.073
  • You don't know how to pray. you don't know how.
  • 00:13:14.139 --> 00:13:15.374
  • You don't know how. they said, "we don't
  • 00:13:15.441 --> 00:13:16.742
  • They said, "we don't know how to pray.
  • 00:13:16.809 --> 00:13:17.943
  • Know how to pray. teach us to pray."
  • 00:13:18.010 --> 00:13:19.278
  • Teach us to pray." and jesus said,
  • 00:13:19.345 --> 00:13:20.179
  • And jesus said, "i'm gonna give you this
  • 00:13:20.246 --> 00:13:21.013
  • "i'm gonna give you this little prayer outline."
  • 00:13:21.080 --> 00:13:22.114
  • Little prayer outline." it covers five, six,
  • 00:13:22.181 --> 00:13:24.550
  • It covers five, six, every major category of life.
  • 00:13:24.617 --> 00:13:26.652
  • Every major category of life. listen to this.
  • 00:13:26.719 --> 00:13:27.386
  • Listen to this. look at this preacher.
  • 00:13:27.453 --> 00:13:28.354
  • Look at this preacher. if you look at that,
  • 00:13:28.420 --> 00:13:30.222
  • Every sermon that people preach
  • 00:13:30.322 --> 00:13:32.558
  • Out of the bible will fall
  • 00:13:32.625 --> 00:13:34.059
  • In one of those six categories.
  • 00:13:34.126 --> 00:13:37.529
  • You start out, "our father,

  • Not in to temptation." the reason that you can't
  • 00:18:32.324 --> 00:18:33.892
  • The reason that you can't overcome temptation is you lack
  • 00:18:33.959 --> 00:18:36.628
  • Overcome temptation is you lack power that only comes
  • 00:18:36.695 --> 00:18:38.964

  • But this is the part of the lord's prayer that we
  • 00:18:41.700 --> 00:18:43.235

  • You put on the whole armor of god.
  • 00:18:49.608 --> 00:18:50.943
  • Armor of god. you begin to speak in the name
  • 00:18:51.009 --> 00:18:52.611
  • You begin to speak in the name of jesus to powers of hell
  • 00:18:52.678 --> 00:18:55.581

  • In a private place, because faith comes by hearing,
  • 00:21:08.413 --> 00:21:10.315
  • Because faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word
  • 00:21:10.382 --> 00:21:11.183
  • And hearing by the word of god especially when
