Lesson 63: Praying Shamelessly (Luke 11:5-13)Related Media
The importance of prayer is something that is clearly exemplified in the Scriptures. From the patriarchs to the apostles, spending time with God in this way has been a characteristic of the person of faith. After presenting His disciples with a model prayer, he then gave them a prayer-based illustration and exhortation. What we see in this story about a man waking his neighbor with a midnight request is a portrait of one who should boldly approach the throne of grace. Pastor Daniel first addresses in this message how it is that we should pray boldly, that we should do such with right motives and an understanding that we will receive only because of mercy. He then charges us to look at our generous Father as the one who is so much more amazing and kind than any earthly dad. He knows how to give gifts and only gives that which is good for His children.
