Message Action Plan

God is Not a Sleepy Friend

When it comes to strengthening and perfecting our prayer life, we have an open invitation from the ultimate teacher, Jesus Christ. In this message at Saddleback Church, Pastor H.B. Charles of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida, teaches on one of Jesus’s most important lessons on prayer. You’ll learn Christ’s formula for prayer and how to come to him with reverence, dependence, and confidence. Don’t miss this continuation of 40 Days of Prayer, which will teach you how to pray directly to God with a certainty that he is able!

  2. Pray about things that will bring glory to God
  3. Pray as if everything depends on God

Action Plan: Try starting every prayer by thanking God for something. Or, try setting an alarm reminder at different points throughout your day and just say a quick thanks to God for something (don't be afraid to think outside the box of what you can be thankful for!).

  1. PRAY WITH DEPENDENCE ON GOD
  1. Do you pray?
  2. How do you pray?

Action Plan: How can you change your prayer requests into bold prayers? For example, as you pray for your child(s) to be safe at school, pray for your child to glorify God through witnessing to another child. Think about some of your constant prayers and see if you can embolden them for God's glory.

  1. PRAY WITH CONFIDENCE IN GOD
  1. Pray with confidence that God is able
  2. Pray with confidence that God is willing
