Prayer Principle 3A: Submission Introduction

Tuesday Bible Study Notes

Westside Care Center Tuesday, October 24, 2006


Mr. C. Pat Lanyon

Review: God expects us to be ANTICIPATING His KINGDOM. 
We prepare for His Kingdom by 
1) Salvation, 
2) Evangelization of the lost, 
3) Fertilization of believers God calls us to disciple, 
4) Occupation by doing His work while we wait, and 
5) Expectation for all the hope and blessing it will bring.

Today we now consider the Third PRINCIPLE OF PRAYER: from the passage Matthew 6:11 
These 2 pages give an overview of the entire section.

From the Prayer Notebook:

When you have faithfully used this section of the Prayer Notebook, you will have attained a relationship with God that establishes Him as a ‘companion’ to you while He retains all of His regal majesty in your life.

You can seek His will for things you are uncertain about and get a measure of assurance as to what to do in many decisions and issues of life. When you cannot be certain, you can know you have done what you can do as a human, and God will do the rest.

After it has helped you in decisions you have made, you will find yourself being able to relate to others as they seek to know and do God’s will for their lives.

Thus you are also able to pray for others after you pray for your own needs. This, of course, can consume great amounts of time, yet it fully explains how Jesus could spend entire nights in prayer to God! (Luke 6.12)
