Praying With Paul – #6

Posted on by Bill Mann

A message by Pastor Bill Mann on Wednesday, December 5, 2018 at King’s Grace Fellowship. Let me start out with a short review of this teaching series.  Paul was grateful for the tangible growth he saw in people, and he wanted them to continue to grow.  So, his prayer in 2 Thessalonians 1:11–12 was that they would live a life worthy of the calling they had received fromGod.  Paul shows an incredible heart for people as he prays for people which is a wonderful example for us to follow. Praying For Others The thing I notice about Paul is his incredible love for people. One can hear it in the language he chooses to use. We have all heard people jokingly say things like, “I love the church, I just can’t stand the people.” (probably not a real joke) For me, the church is people. We are not called to love a building, Church programs, outreaches, and every other kind of activity that a church could come up with. But we are called to love people. The whole idea of a pastor’s pulpit ministry should be designed to help people. To rebuke them as or if needed, encourage them when … Read more »

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 »
