Pray Like a Child

Pray Like a Child

Matthew 18:1-5, 19:13-15

The Problem:

All Christians know that prayer is important and something they are supposed to do. Yet many feel praying is hard, boring, or worse, a waste of time? Sadly they see prayer more as a spiritual discipline rather than a relationship with their Heavenly Father.

 

Are you like that? Do you want to revive your prayer life?

 

 

The Solution:

Turn back the clock, and pray like a child.

 

 

Why be like a child?

 

1. Because Jesus says so. (Matthew 18:1-5)

a. Key to entering the kingdom of heaven (v.3)

b. Humble like a child makes you the greatest (v.4)

 

2. Have unhindered access to Jesus. (Matthew 19:13-15)

a. Jesus makes sure nothing blocks you from meeting him. (v.14)

b. Jesus loves to bless you in prayer. (v.15)

 

 

How to pray like a child? (A Praying Life, Paul E. Miller)

 

1. Ask like a child.

2. Believe like a child.

3. Play like a child (Babble).

 

 

“For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.”

(Romans 8:26)
