Praying With Paul – #4

Posted on by Bill Mann

A message by Pastor Bill Mann on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at King’s Grace Fellowship.2 Thessalonians 1:3-11 Framework #2 – Assurance of God’s Vindication Tonight, we pick up where we left off last Wednesday. These verses give us a kind of “backdrop” of why Paul prays as he does. What controls his thinking and guides his requests. So tonight, I want to consider the 2nd dominant “feature” of Paul’s prayer framework in order to understand why he prays as he does. Let’s look at 2 Thessalonians 1:3-5 as we begin. There is no doubt, that in this life, there will be trouble. That trouble will be magnified for those who follow Christ. Our culture is getting more and more “hostile” towards Christians and in some cases they deserve it, but “real” Christians (God will judge), will persevere under this stress. Now the works of the flesh are evident, . . . But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!Gal. 5:19,22-23 (NLT/NKJV) Paul was thankful for the Thessalonian’s patience and faith as they endured persecutions and trials and he talked about … Read more »

Praying With Paul – #3

Posted on by Bill Mann

A message by Pastor Bill Mann on Wednesday, October 3, 2018 at King’s Grace Fellowship.2 Thessalonians 1:3-12 In this teaching I want to begin looking at the prayers of Paul and as I do, I want to paint the backdrop that Paul used in prayer. (a sort of “framework” for prayer) To do that, turn with me to 2 Thessalonians 1:3-12. Now before we launch into the actual prayer requests (petitions) I want us to take a look at the foundation from which Paul prays. In, verse 11 he says, “Therefore, we also pray always for you” (NKJV), “With this in mind, we constantly pray for you” (ESV), “So we keep on praying for you” (NLT)  Of course, we have to investigate what he means with that statement. To do so, we have to consider what preceded the statement. With the exception of his simple greeting in verses 1 & 2 we have to consider all that’s been said in verses 3-12. It was fairly normal for Paul, after a brief salutation to launches in to a moment of thanksgiving for those he is writing to. In which he does in verses 3-10. It’s really the point of this teaching … Read more »

Praying With Paul – #2

Posted on by Bill Mann

A message by Pastor Bill Mann on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at King’s Grace Fellowship.James 5:16 Introduction I was going to share this scripture last week, but I may have forgotten to, yet it is an important verse when we consider prayer in general.  James 5:16 “ . . . The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man [person] avails much.” –(NKJV) I decided that the fundamentals of prayer are so important that I wanted to continue to expand this introduction to include some very important aspects. You will remember from the first teaching these 2 areas: We End Up Not Praying Much Because We Don’t Plan To PrayLearning To Stay Focused (beating mental drift) So, let’s pick up where we left off as we look at what we might learn from mature believers about prayer. #3 – Develop A Prayer Partner Relationship At various times in your life developing a prayer partner relationship is a very helpful thing. Of course, care must be taken in choosing a prayer partner. Concerning this D. A. Carson had this to say: “If you are not married, make sure your prayer partner is someone of your own sex. If you are married and choose a … Read more »

Praying With Paul

Posted on by Bill Mann

A message by Pastor Bill Mann on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at King’s Grace Fellowship. Introduction Years ago, I was intrigued with how Paul prayed each time I began reading a Pauline epistle. The passion and depth in which he prayed caused me to reevaluate how I prayed for people. My intrigued resulted in a study series of the prayers of Paul. Since that time, I have read some good resources concerning this subject, finding that I was not alone in my intrigue. So once again I am intrigued by this subject and want to teach a new series on “Praying With Paul.” By way of introduction, let’s talk about prayer in general for a bit. “I doubt if there is any Christian who has not sometimes found it difficult to pray. In itself this is neither surprising nor depressing: it is not surprising because we are still passing through with many lessons to learn; it is not depressing because struggling with such matters is part of the way we learn.” What is both surprising and depressing is that prayerlessness characterizes so much of the church. It is surprising because it is out of step with the Bible, which portrays … Read more »

Proverbs 31

Posted on by Bill Mann

A message by Pastor Bill Mann on Wednesday, June 6, 2018 at King’s Grace Fellowship. Proverbs 31 (NKJV) Introduction Tonight, marks the end of our journey through Proverbs. My hope is that from this point as you read Proverbs the Holy Spirit will bring to your remembrances some of highlights that have been shared. Remember these are divine, time honored principles that will help guide your journey through life. Highlight #1 – Sex (v. 3) Proverbs 31:3 (NKJV) Do not give your strength to women, Nor your ways to that which destroys kings. Proverbs 31:3 (The Message) Don’t dissipate your virility on fortune-hunting women, promiscuous women who shipwreck leaders. Throughout Proverbs there are warnings regarding boundaries for sex. I think these warnings can be distilled to this: Sex is wonderful within the context of godly boundaries. (marriage) Outside those boundaries things will go sideways. The warnings prior to this one and including this one all indicate this notion. A common thread is that each individual must decide for themselves to heed the warning and get as far away as possible from the threat. I try to take a pragmatic approach to things and logically think through the subject at hand. … Read more »
