Everyone has troubles. Bible teacher Sue Bohlin reminds us that God uses our personal battles to mold us into the mature Christians that he desires for us to become. He gave us prayer as a powerful weapon for fighting those battles (Ephesians 6:13-18). Sue instructs us in practical and biblical means of achieving intimacy with God through prayer. These three sessions on prayer were originally delivered as the last three sessions of her series, Spiritual Warfare.
Prayer is exciting, vibrant communication with God. The goal of prayer is intimacy with God. The power of prayer is not found in the feelings, intonations, volume, or vocabulary that we conjure up. The power is not in us; it is in God.
God wants to hear from us! In this lecture, Sue teaches how we should talk to God. She also discusses what may be happening during those times when God appears not to answer our prayers.
Sue defines prayer as “two people who love each other talking to each other and listening to each other.” She offers advice on ways to cultivate a love relationship with someone you cannot see (God). She addresses the issue of how to know that it is God who is communicating with you. Sue then encourages believers to approach God confidently and full of faith.
