Chestnut Ridge Church
As Christians, one of the most powerful and underutilized resources we have is prayer. The New Testament writer James wrote, "You have not because you ask not." God invites us to talk with him about everything we face in life! He is a Father who loves to give good things to his children. But often, we are like the disciples of Jesus, who said to him, "Teach us to pray." We don't know how to pray or what we should pray about. This message series is titled, Ask. Let's explore together how amazing prayer is and how we can grow more effective in prayer.

Ask - Part 2 [August 27, 2017] Tim Haring

We don't see how essential prayer is to our lives
If Jesus needed to pray, how much more do we?
The adverb for continually was used in Greek of a hacking cough. Paul was speaking of maintaining continuous fellowship with God as much as possible in the midst of daily living in which concentration is frequently broken.[1] - Constable

[1] Constable, T. L. (1985). 1 Thessalonians. In J. F. Walvoord & R. B. Zuck (Eds.), The Bible Knowledge Commentary: An Exposition of the Scriptures (Vol. 2, pp. 708–709). Wheaton, IL: Victor Books.
If Jesus needed to pray, how much more do we?
Jesus prayed—

At the beginning of his public ministry
Jesus prayed—

When he needed to recharge
Jesus prayed—

When he needed to make an important decision
Jesus prayed—

Whenever he had a special need
Jesus prayed—

When he faced difficult temptations or trials
If Jesus needed to pray, how much more do we?
