Lesson from Sunday January 10, 2010
Discussion focused on reasons why we pray. Sheets teaches that no one is born a prayer hero. They are shaped and refined on the practice field of life.
In The Last Days Newsletter, Leonard Ravenhill tells about a group of tourists visiting a picturesque village who walked by an old man sitting beside a fence. In a rather patronizing way, one tourist asked, “Were any great men born in this village?” The old man replied, “Nope, only babies.”
Sheets makes his claim based upon Galatians 6 which says to pray for one another and to be persistent in doing so.
- 2Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. (NASB)
- 9Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. (NASB)
