Part 27 – Praying for Words
Ephesians 6.17-24

What?  “Prayer”
It is by prayer that we wield the sword of the Spirit
If we pray without the Word, we are rudderless
If we don’t pray but have the Word, we are religious

When?  “At All Times”
If you’re going to wield the sword, you must be a person of prayer
Prayer is conversation, not recitation
Prayer is dialogue, not monologue
Prayer:  talking with God about mutual concerns

How? “Alert”
Stay Alert that there is a war going on around us
Stay Alert with Perseverance
It’s through perseverance in prayer that our sense of its importance is sharpened

Whom? “All the Saints”
Prayer is inherently relational
Paul asks for prayer that his ministry would be effective
Paul makes sure they pray in an informed way
Together we become people who love our Lord Jesus Christ with love incorruptible
