TEACH US TO PRAY
Your Will Be Done (Part 2)
Luke 11:1 – One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
Matthew 6:10 – Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
1 Chronicles 4:9-10 – Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, saying, “I gave birth to him in pain.” Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.
1. Pray for blessing
- Psalm 5:12, Genesis 12:2, Matthew 7:11
2. Pray for influence

Prayer is when we align our hearts with His will.
