Prayer Is Not Just For Jesus (Part 2)

Psalm 119:62-77, I Samuel 1:9-28, Exodus 33:11, Matthew 26:36-46

Hannah prayed for a son and God heard and gave a prophet Samuel.  She also had additional children.  Moses prayed for God's blessing and presence for Israel.  God spoke with Moses as a friend speaks with a friend.  Jesus our savior prayed many times; as in the garden.

  • Joshua 24:2 tells us that Abram's father worshipped other God's

  • Because of a famine Abram decides to journey into Egypt. Abram's journey into Egypt included the deception of calling Sari his sister to preserve his own skin.  Genesis 20:2  Even with the deception God watched over Abram blessed him.  He got back on track.

  • For us today it is easy to get off track.  We must keep our eyes on Jesus as the great example.
