Sanctifying Prayer

Message by Pastor Gilbert Nigh

Text: 1 John 5:13-15, 1 Thessalonians 4:3-12

As we think of Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, as our example for how to live our life, certainly we should also be following him in prayer, and so we know that prayer is about talking or a conversation with God, but what about the content of our prayers, there was a conversation with God about what? Just about the things that are on our mind, the things that as we sit and as we think about life, the things that are on our mind, we just bring them to God, is that’s what it’s about? So let’s think about that a little bit this morning. What is this conversation with God all about? Let’s start by looking at some words, our friend the apostle John gives us something to think about as he writes his first letter to his friends, his dear children, as calls them we don’t really know who they were, but at the end of the letter, he says this: “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.”
