  • Deuteronomy 21:18-21
    • If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them:
    • Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place;
    • And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.
    • And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
  • Job 42:7
    • After the LORD had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not spoken the truth about me, as my servant Job has.
  • Galatians (6:1-2) [ Bear One Another’s Burdens ]
    • My friends, if someone is caught in any kind of wrongdoing, those of you who are spiritual should set him right; but you must do it in a gentle way.
      And keep an eye on yourselves, so that you will not be tempted, too.
    • Help carry one another’s burdens, and in this way you will obey the law of Christ.
  • Hebrew 6:4-8
    • For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and shave shared in the Holy Spirit,
    • and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come,
    • and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt.
    • For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God.
    • But if it bears thorns and thistles, it is worthless and near to being cursed, and its end is to be burned.
  • New Life in Christ ( Ephesians 4:28-31 )
    • Let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building up the one in need and bringing grace to those who listen.
    • And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, in whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
    • Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, outcry and slander, along with every form of malice.…
  • Timothy 1:13
    • I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, that He considered me faithful and appointed me to service.
      I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and a violent man; yet because I had acted in ignorance and unbelief, I was shown mercy.
      And the grace of our Lord overflowed to me, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.…

  1. Apostle Paul ( 1st Timothy 1:13 )
    • Verses
      • Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief.
    • Interpretation
      • I was formerly a Blasphemer
      • Shown Mercy ( Grace)
      • My sin was out of Ignorance
  2. Matthew 24:24
    • For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.
    • There are miracles on both sides
  3. 1st Corinthian 6:9-11
    • Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men
    • nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
    • And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
  4. Galatians 5:19-21
    • The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;
    • idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions
    • and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
  5. Ephesians 5:15-20
    • Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise,
    • making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
    • Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
    • Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit,
    • speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,
    • always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  6. Proverbs 15:5-10
    • A fool spurns a parent’s discipline,
      but whoever heeds correction shows prudence.
    • The house of the righteous contains great treasure,but the income of the wicked brings ruin.
    •  The lips of the wise spread knowledge, but the hearts of fools are not upright.
    • The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but the prayer of the upright pleases him.
    • The Lord detests the way of the wicked,but he loves those who pursue righteousness.
    •  Stern discipline awaits anyone who leaves the path; the one who hates correction will die.

    • Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. ( James 5:13-16 )

      As soon as I heard these words I sat down and wept and mourned for days, and I continued fasting and praying before the God of heaven.And I said, “O Lord God of heaven, the great and awesome God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments,let your ear be attentive and your eyes open, to hear the prayer of your servant that I now pray before you day and night for the people of Israel your servants, confessing the sins of the people of Israel, which we have sinned against you. Even I and my father’s house have sinned.We have acted very corruptly against you and have not kept the commandments, the statutes, and the rules that you commanded your servant Moses.
    • Daniel

        Link
        Then I turned my face to the Lord God, seeking him by prayer and pleas for mercy with fasting and sackcloth and ashes.I prayed to the Lord my God and made confession, saying, “O Lord, the great and awesome God, who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments,we have sinned and done wrong and acted wickedly and rebelled, turning aside from your commandments and rules.We have not listened to your servants the prophets, who spoke in your name to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, and to all the people of the land.To you, O Lord, belongs righteousness, but to us open shame
      • Daniel’s Prayer for His People ( Daniel 9:17-19 )
        Link
        Now therefore, O our God, listen to the prayer of your servant and to his pleas for mercy, and for your own sake, O Lord, make your face to shine upon your sanctuary, which is desolate.O my God, incline your ear and hear. Open your eyes and see our desolations, and the city that is called by your name. For we do not present our pleas before you because of our righteousness, but because of your great mercy.O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive. O Lord, pay attention and act. Delay not, for your own sake, O my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.”
      • Gabriel Angelic Visitation
        Daniel’s Prayer for His People ( Daniel 9:20-23 )

Why Jesus Prayed

  1. Jesus Prays on the Mount of Olives ( Luke 22:42-44 )
    Link
    …“Father, if You are willing, take this cup from Me. Yet not My will, but Yours be done.”
    Then an angel from heaven appeared to Him and strengthened Him.
    And in His anguish, He prayed more earnestly, and His sweat became like drops of blood falling to the ground.…
  2. Fellow Workers ( Colossians 4:2-4 )
    Link
    …Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful,
    as you pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.
    Pray that I may declare it clearly, as I should.…
  3. What prayer is not
    • It is not an option
    • It is not an obligation
  4. Struggle
    • I think the reason why we struggle most in prayer is because we do not see results
    • But, that is a different message, for a different day

An Immigrant’s Courage

  1. Deuteronomy 23
    • “No Ammonite or Moabite may enter the assembly of the Lord. Even to the tenth generation, none of them may enter the assembly of the Lord forever,
      because they did not meet you with bread and with water on the way, when you came out of Egypt, and because they hired against you Balaam the son of Beor from Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse you.
      But the Lord your God would not listen to Balaam; instead the Lord your God turned the curse into a blessing for you, because the Lord your God loved you.
      You shall not seek their peace or their prosperity all your days forever. ( Deuteronomy 23:3-6 )
    • “You shall not abhor an Edomite, for he is your brother. You shall not abhor an Egyptian, because you were a sojourner in his land.
      Children born to them in the third generation may enter the assembly of the Lord. ( Deuteronomy 23:7)
  2. Barren Woman
    • “Shout for joy, O barren one, you who have borne no child; Break forth into joyful shouting and cry aloud, you who have not travailed; For the sons of the desolate one will be more numerous Than the sons of the married woman,” says the LORD. ( Isaiah 54:1 )
    • …But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother.
      For it is written: “Rejoice, O barren woman, who bears no children; break forth and cry aloud, you who have never travailed; because more are the children of the desolate woman, than of her who has a husband.”
      Now you, brothers, like Isaac, are children of the promise.… ( Galatians 4:26-28 )

A World of Idols

  1. Gehazi’s Greed and Leprosy
    …Naaman said, “If not, please let your servant at least be given two mules’ load of earth; for your servant will no longer offer burnt offering nor will he sacrifice to other gods, but to the LORD.
    “In this matter may the LORD pardon your servant: when my master goes into the house of Rimmon to worship there, and he leans on my hand and I bow myself in the house of Rimmon, when I bow myself in the house of Rimmon, the LORD pardon your servant in this matter.”
    He said to him, “Go in peace.” So he departed from him some distance.… ( 2 Kings 5:17-19 )
