The Power of Focused Prayer

We can learn to unlock the secret power in our lives if we learn how to focus our prayer, even as Jesus did.  Last week we talked about the focus of prayer being a preoccupation with God’s will for our lives.  When Jesus prayed He was praying the Father’s will and He knew it because He was always in close communication with the Father.  Whenever Jesus prayed, things happened and so it is no wonder that the disciples asked Him to share the secret with them, “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11:1).  


The Focus of Prayer

Have you ever stopped to think about the question, “what should be the focus of prayer?”  We pray for our needs; we pray for God to bless the food that we eat; we pray for other people; we pray for our nation and for our leaders; we pray in desperation and we pray out of habit.  But what should the focus of prayer be?  All of these kinds of prayer are viable and they are good, but is there anything that would tell us what the focus of all prayer is?  I believe that when Jesus taught His disciples to pray that He gave us a clue as to what the focus of prayer should be.  Let’s talk about that.


God Wondered

I have a very old book in my library that I’ve read and marked up a lot and I’ve been thinking about reading again, so I picked it up this morning and was reminded why it grabbed my attention in the first place.  The book is The Kneeling Christian and is written by “An Unknown Christian.”  The very first words in the book are “God Wondered.”  The author goes on, “This is a very striking thought!  The very boldness of the idea ought surely to arrest the attention of every earnest Christian man, woman and child.  A wondering God!  Why, how staggered we might well be if we knew the cause of God’s ‘wonder’!”  Does that make you curious like it made me?  It is obviously a quote from the Bible and it certainly made me wonder.  The quote is taken from Isaiah 59:16 and from the King James Version.  Look at what it says.
