Topic: Prayer Scripture: Ephesians 6:18–6:24

IT MATTERS: How You Behave!
Ephesians 6:18-24
Dr. Scott Hanberry

Statement of Affirmation: I pray to God to know Him, to lay my request before Him and to find direction for my daily life. 

Today, I want us to consider the truths laid out in Ephesians 6:18-20 regarding Spirit-filled prayer. Prayer is a key component in spiritual conflicts. Pail does not put forth prayer as a weapon, but as the means for utilizing the armor he has already talked about. Prayer is how we put on "the whole armor of God." 

1) The _______________ of prayer. 

     It is always the ____________  _______________ to pray. 
     It is always ________  _______________ to stop praying! 

2) The _______________ of our prayers. 

3) The _______________ of our prayers. 

All of our praying should be done "in the Spirit." Just as the Christian life is to be lived in the Spirit, Ephesians 5:18, Galatians 5:16, all prayer is to be prayed "in the Spirit." 

~ We pray in the "name of Jesus."

~ We pray according to the will of God & the nature of God. 

~ We pray in cooperation with the Spirit of God.
