Why Don't You Pray? (Luke 18:1-8)Tommy Boring, February 9, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Prayer is a simple concept but is rarely used. Prayer is talking to God. One purpose of prayer is to call on God. The second is the possibility of prayer. Hebrews 7:24-25 When you pray, you do not do it alone. Romans 8:26 We know that we have someone that knows what we can't describe and yet we do not talk to Him. Why won't we pray more? Because the flesh will not allow it. The persistence of prayer is important. Do you pray enough? Romans 12:12 We should be praying throughout the entire day. Ephesians 6:18 your physical posture has nothing to do with prayer, however, your humbleness of your heart does. Prayer should have a privacy. Matthew 6:6 Prayer should be between you and Him. Someone else's prayer is their prayer, not yours. The preacher can not say a prayer for you. Is their power in prayer? Mathew 7:7 Have you asked? Mathew 21:22 Not only should you ask, but believe.

1And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. 6And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (KJV)
