The Prayer That Never Fails (Mark 14:32-42)Tommy Boring, November 6, 2013
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
The scripture warns us about praying for things of our wants from our flesh. Everything that we do with God involves prayer. God desires to hear from us. There are those among us that that say they pray all the time but their hearts are full of sin. The bible says that if one holds iniquity in their heart, He will not hear from them. All things are possible through God. How many times this week have you spoke with God? The prayer that never fails is all about trust. It's whether you fully trust what God will do with your prayer and that no matter the outcome, it's trusting that Gods will is always good. God has never made a mistake with a single soul. If you are born again, there was a time where you trusted God with your soul. If you are willing to trust God with your eternal soul, shouldn't you be able to trust what His will is with your prayers? The questions is whether you can trust Him completely (Proverbs 3:5).

32And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray. 33And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy; 34And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch. 35And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. 36And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt. 37And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour? 38Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak. 39And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words. 40And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him. 41And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand. (KJV)
