Bible study - Different types of prayers
"Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit"
Eph 6:18

The bible talks about different types of prayer. Knowing what type of prayer to pray and when to pray it is very important to our prayer life.

1. Prayer of supplication
Luke 11:9 - 13, James 5:17-18, 1Kings 8:37-40, 54-55

A. What does the prayer of supplication involve?

B. What adjustment do we need to make in our life if we are to take up the prayer of supplication?

Supplication means to petition or entreat someone for something. A passionate zeal and hunger fuels the prayer of supplication. Jesus wants us to seek his riches. This is where the prayer of supplication comes in. It is a prayer that all Christians should regularly engage in. Ask God to give you a hunger to seek his face. Notice that in the above three scriptures.people were seeking ( or asked to seek ) for something specific which meant a lot to them. Do you desire to know God's will for your life ? The prayer of supplication can sometimes lead us into fasting. Nehemiah 1:1-6

2. Prayer of intercession.

Genesis 18:22-33 ( Abraham ), 1 Kings 18:41-46 (Elijah), 2Kings 4:32-36 (Elisha), Acts 12:1-18 ( the early church)

A. What is the prayer of intercession?

B. Who can get involved in the prayer of intercession?

C. What effects do the prayer of intercession have?

D. What is the the difference between the prayer of supplication and intercession?

To intercede means to plead or mediate on behalf of another person, Jesus is interceding for us ( Hebrews 7:25) so is the Holy Spirit praying for us and through us as we pray in the spirit. ( Romans 8:26-27 ).

1. God Loves You!

The Bible says, "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life"

The problem is that . . .

2. All of us have done, said or thought things that are wrong. This is called sin, and our sins have separated us from God.

The Bible says “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” God is perfect and holy, and our sins separate us from God forever. The Bible says “The wages of sin is death.”

The good news is that, about 2,000 years ago,

3. God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.

Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. “God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.”

Jesus rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His Father. He offers us the gift of eternal life -- of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me."

God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name." You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.

4. If you want to accept Christ as Savior and turn from your sins, you can ask Him to be your Savior and Lord by praying a prayer like this:

"Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always."
