How Not To Pray

Matthew 6:1-8

This week, Pastor David returned to the Sermon On The Mount series by focusing on Jesus’ example of prayer and how we follow that example. 

  • Think about your own foundations of prayer. What needs to be demolished before new practices can be built?
  • What is the greatest obstacle you face in your personal prayer life? Are you willing to commit to ask the Lord to remove that obstacle DAILY until it’s gone?
  • Where do you regularly go to pray? When do you consistently pray?
  • How do you prioritize prayer in your life? If you don’t, what is keeping you from doing so? 

In your time with God this week: 

1. Thank God for Jesus’ example of prayer.

2. Ask God to give you a desire to spend time with him, alone in prayer.

3. Commit to make prayer a priority in your life. 


"And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place and there he prayed." -Mark 1:35

“And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray.” -Mark 6:46

“And after he dismissed the crowds, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,…” -Matthew 14:23

“In these days he went out to the mountain to pray, and all night he continued in prayer to God.” -Luke 6:12
