Prayer

Every Man Perfect #1



When a nation loses its way spiritually, says John Alley, other things slide also. This statement was in response to a recent report that the standards of students’ results in learning have become drastically lower than previously. However, says John, by our prayers the Lord turns all things around to show His glory. John goes on to state that everything goo din this world can be traced back to the gospel – medal breakthroughs, care for the aged and underprivileged and great inventions all had their beginnings in Christianity. However, when an atheistic society gets hold of these good things and twists them to an extreme position, corruption occurs. John refers to Colossians 1:28, where reference is made to “every man perfect”, explaining that according to Scripture we all should strive to be perfect as God is perfect. John emphasizes the need for strong men in leadership in the Church. We must be very prayerful, says John, in these times when there is an agenda afoot to twist and distort that which God meant for good.

Spiritual Warfare 101



The basics of spiritual warfare are being aware that we have an enemy, and knowing how to pray and resist. It is less scary than we think, and yet we must be aware of His schemes. As Eve was deceived with what seemed plausible, so spiritual warfare is waged against God's people in ways that fit in our understanding. Jesus Christ when tempted resisted Satan because He knew the scripture. This sermon takes us to the starting place of spiritual warfare, which is prayer, scripture, and not looking at people as the problem.

The Place of Prayer



Solomon prayed for the people of God and God responded with a precious promise (2 Chronicles 6 and 7). Today, says Jonathan Maxwell, we are the temple and we are the priests. Jesus Himself is our intercessor and we have the promises in a more complete way. There are needs in the nation, in our own city and in our individual lives, says Jonathan, and no matter what is going on around us, the solution begins with us. Our prayers make a huge difference, whether or not we believe we are good pray-ers, because of the faith of Christ who prayed for us. In conclusion, Jonathan reminds the people “God has not changed. The things he did in the past, he can do today. But it starts with the individual believer – with me!”

How Much Should We Pray?



If you were in a room full of money and were told we could have as much as we wanted, how much effort would we make in collecting it? Would we work for five minutes then stop satisfied we had "done our bit for the day." Or would we complain about the lack of air conditioning as we pick up money. Or would we complain that "its boring picking up all this money." Prayer holds higher value to us that money does, and yet we seem to not be aware of the value of the currency of heaven. How much should we pray? The answer is, as much as possible.

The Life of Prayer



John Alley takes up the thread with his strong belief that the grace of God is meant to fall on Central Queensland in its entirety, not just our city and surrounds. We really ought to be praying, says John, for the transformation of Central Queensland. The borders are porous too, so that the blessing can “leak out” to surrounding areas as we do the work of prayer. God is always ready to pour out grace, but our prayers must be strengthened in order to see the outcome we seek. John encourages all to be part of the morning prayer meetings, as well as Friday night prayer and the Youth meetings. John goes on to give six “conditions” for answered prayer including being in Christ, praying in the name of Jesus, the health of our relationships, having a clean heart, belief and praying according to the will of God before concluding the message with a reading from Deuteronomy 13:12-13.

Prayer is a most powerful force for change, and through prayer we advance the Kingdom of Christ and see greater works done, that we are called to do. Christ calls us all to prayer, and the scriptures say that God is “looking for someone who would stand in the gap.” He seeks intercessors, and may He find one in you.

However when we ask repeatedly for the same thing, always beleiving that it has not been granted, somehow a lack of faith applies to keep a situation from changing.

Daniel #3 - Reserved for Gods Service



Philip Alley gives a brief overview of his previous message on the life of Daniel before moving on to today’s theme of living ready for service, just as Daniel did. Philip begins with a timeline of the outstanding events of Daniel’s life as recorded in Scripture, beginning with his challenge to eating the food offered as a very young man to his encounter with the lion’s den when he was over 80 years old. Daniel lived a counter cultural life, says Philip, a way of life completely different to the accepted values of the society in which he lived. He was very clear about who he was – and we must be too. We must not allow ourselves to draw our nourishment from the world around us but to look to God for our sustenance in all things. We make our decisions, says Philip, but then those decisions make us. Today Philip focuses on Daniel 5, describing the city of Babylon and describing the handwriting on the wall that spelled the demise of the kingdom of Belshazzar after he took the sacred vessel from the temple to drink from in an unholy manner. Drawing a parallel, we are the temple of God, and we must not fill our vessels with unholy things but be filled with the Spirit of God. True joy comes from knowing that we are redeemed, says Philip. Happiness comes and goes and depends on circumstances, but true joy is a gift of God. Philip’s message is rich with examples from Daniel’s way of life and decisions that we would all do well to emulate.
