Our Father- Praying In The Spirit

John 13:34

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

John 13:1-5

Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. During supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him, Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going back to God, rose from supper. He laid aside his outer garments, and taking a towel, tied it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around him.”

John 13:12-15 When he had washed their feet and put on his outer garments and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you understand what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Lord, and you are right, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do just as I have done to you.

You may want justice and vengeance, but those are God’s job. Our job to take care of our hearts.

Why is it so easy for us to receive a clean slate while we make a list of all the wrong doing of others?

1- Look at your heart
Psalm 51:10 Create in me a pure heart, o God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Hebrews 12:15 See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled.

2-Find the root

3 Choose to forgive
Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this, that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.

When we remember all Jesus forgave us of we cannot go on in bitterness and not forgive. We must choose to be like Him and love fully!

4- Continue to walk out forgiveness
Psalm 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
John 13:15 For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.

When walking out forgiveness gets hard:
-Ask God to see the person who hurt you as He does.
-Remember Jesus died for them too.

Ephesians 4:31-32 Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.

Further reading on forgiving others:
-Matthew 6:14
-Mark 11:25
-Matthew 18:21-22
-Colossians 3:12-13

Our Father- Intercessors

Pentecost speaks of a second experience.

Acts 2:1–4 (NIV)
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

Acts 1:8 You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you.

2.Courage & boldness

 Acts 4:31 They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness. (See also Acts 4:12)


How to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit 
Luke 11:9-13 (NIV)
9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

1- Open your heart
2- Ask, Seek & Knock!
  Luke 11:13 Your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!
3- Receive
Psalms 81:10 Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it…

Ephesians 5:18 Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit.

Our Father- Steadfast in Prayer

Intercessor: A Person who intervenes on behalf of another.

The priest:
Hebrews 5:1 (NLT) Every high priest is a man chosen to represent other people in their dealings with God. He presents their gifts to God and offers sacrifices for their sins.

Jesus the High Priest
Matthew 27:50–51 (NLT) 50 Jesus shouted out again, and he released his spirit. 51 At that moment the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart.

Jesus replaced the priesthood system and became The last high priest.
1 Timothy 2:5–6 (NLT) 5 There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. 6 He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone….

Hebrews 5:9–10 (NLT) 9 God qualified him as a perfect High Priest, and he became the source of eternal salvation for all those who obey him. 10 And God designated him to be a High Priest in the order of Melchizedek.

The King-Priest: “The Order of Melchizedek”
Hebrews 7:1–3 (NLT) This Melchizedek was king of the city of Salem and also a priest of God Most High. When Abraham was returning home after winning a great battle against the kings, Melchizedek met him and blessed him. 2 Then Abraham took a tenth of all he had captured in battle and gave it to Melchizedek. The name Melchizedek means “king of justice,” and king of Salem means “king of peace.” 3 There is no record of his father or mother or any of his ancestors—no beginning or end to his life. He remains a priest forever, resembling the Son of God.
* Genesis 14:18-20

#1. King
#2. Priest
#3. He gives 
bread and wine
#4. He blesses.

Jesus is our King-High Priest 
Order of Melchizedek: Jesus is the eternal mediator between God and man and the final authority as reigning king.

Hebrews 6:19–20 (NLT) 19 This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary. 20 Jesus has already gone in there for us. He has become our eternal High Priest in the order of Melchizedek. 

#1. He is approachable.
Hebrews 4:15–16 (NLT) 15 This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. 16 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

#2. He Intercedes for us
Romans 8:34 (NIV) Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.

“Satan is pointing at our sin and deeming us shamed, Jesus is pointing to the cross and declaring us redeemed.

#3. He puts Intercession in us
  • He gave full access to heaven by becoming the high priest and anointing everyone who follows him the new priesthood. 
1 Peter 2:9–12 (NLT) You are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. 10 “Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. 
Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.” 
11 Dear friends, I warn you as “temporary residents and foreigners” to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against your very souls. 12 Be careful to
 live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when he judges the world.

The Ministry of Intercession
2 Corinthians 5:19–20 (NIV) He has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us…

1. Prayer & Fasting. 

“Brokenness won’t by simply being socially and politically active we must be spiritually persistent!”

2. Representing Jesus well.
We are ambassadors!

3. The message we bring.
Romans 10:14 (NLT) 14 But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?

We need to be winsome
1 Peter 3:15 (NIV)15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.

4. The power we function in.
Between The Ling and The Dead
Numbers 16:46–48 (NLT) 46 And Moses said to Aaron, “Quick, take an incense burner and place burning coals on it from the altar. Lay incense on it, and carry it out among the people to purify them and make them right with the Lord. The Lord’s anger is blazing against them—the plague has already begun.” 47 Aaron did as Moses told him and ran out among the people. The plague had already begun to strike down the people, but Aaron burned the incense and purified the people. 48 He stood between the dead and the living, and the plague stopped. 

Our Father- Praise

Matthew 6:9–13 (NKJV)

9 Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as 
it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.
13 And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Matthew 6:13 (NKJV)  Do not lead us into temptationBut deliver us from the evil one.

"Do not lead us into temptation."
  • God does not tempt us
James 1:13–15 (NLT) 13 And remember, when you are being tempted, do not say, "God is tempting me." God is never tempted to do wrong, and he never tempts anyone else. 14 Temptation comes from our own desires, which entice us and drag us away. 15 These desires give birth to sinful actions. And when sin is allowed to grow, it gives birth to death

Prayer tip: Pray "Father, keep evil far out of reach"

We will all face temptation from the evil one.

Luke 4:1–13 (NIV) 4 Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, 2 where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing during those days, and at the end of them he was hungry. 3 The devil said to him, "If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread." 4 Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man shall not live on bread alone.'" 5 The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. 6 And he said to him, "I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. 7 If you worship me, it will all be yours." 8 Jesus answered, "It is written'Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.'" 9 The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. "If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down from here. 10 For it is written: 'He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; 11 they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'" 12 Jesus answered, "It is said: 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'" 13 When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left him until an opportune time.

The plan of the evil one
1. To reduce your identity. 
  • The greatest individual crisis is an identity crisis. 
  • Prayer is the place where we bury carnal desires.

2. To ruin your purpose.
  • As Followers of Christ and lovers of God, we must be informed and directed by the Lord. 

1 John 2:15–16 (NLT) 15 Do not love this world nor the things it offers you, for when you love the world, you do not have the love of the Father in you. 16 For the world offers only a craving for physical pleasure, a craving for everything we see, and pride in our achievements and possessions. These are not from the Father, but are from this world.

3. To rebel against what God says.
  • Satan will always question and distort the word.

"But deliver us from the evil one."

God always provides a way out of sin.
1 Corinthians 10:12–13 (NLT) 12 If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. 13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.

Walking in deliverance...
Ephesians 6:11–13 (NIV)11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.

1. Remember, the battle is spiritual.
You can win a carnal battle in the spirit, but you can't win a spiritual battle in the flesh. 
  • The nature you nurture is the nature that wins.

2. Appropriate Spiritual armor. 
Prayer tip: appropriate your armor daily.
Ephesians 6:14–17
  • Breastplate of righteousness.
  • Belt of Truth.
  • Shoes of the gospel. 
  • Shield of faith.
  • Helmet of salvation.
  • Sword of the Spirit.

3. Pray the word. 
Prayer tip: Pray the word.

4. Stay near to God.
Luke 4:4(NIV) Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness

We only see defeat when we are distant. 

Our Father- Perseverance

Genesis 2:15 (NLT)
 The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it.
Genesis 2:25 (NLT) Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame.
Genesis 3:7 (NLT) At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.
Genesis 3:8–10 (NLT) 8 When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man and his wife heard the Lord God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the Lord God among the trees. 9 Then the Lord God called to the man, "Where are you?" 10 He replied, "I heard you walking in the garden, so I hid. I was afraid because I was naked."
Genesis 3:21 (NLT) The Lord God made clothing from animal skins for Adam and his wife.

"The gospel is not only about the guilty made innocent but bringing honor to the shameful."

Honor cultivates an atmosphere for miracles.
Mark 6:1-6 (NLT) 1 Jesus left that part of the country and returned with his disciples to Nazareth, his hometown. 2 The next Sabbath he began teaching in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. They asked, "Where did he get all this wisdom and the power to perform such miracles?" 3 Then they scoffed"He's just a carpenter, the son of Mary and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas, and Simon. And his sisters live right here among us." They were deeply offended and refused to believe in him. 4 Then Jesus told them, "A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown and among his relatives and his own family." And because of their unbelief, he couldn't do any mighty miracles among them except to place his hands on a few sick people and heal them. 6  And he was amazed at their unbelief. Then Jesus went from village to village, teaching the people. 

  • Honor- gk. timey- A Valuing: Recognize the value, appreciate, esteem favorable regard.
  • Dishonor- gk. atimey- to treat as common or ordinary.

Honor requires intentionality. 
Familiarity can debilitate our ability to honor.

We Honor God with …
1. Our Worship (Psalm 29:1-2)
2. Our Priorities(Exodus 20)
3. Our Finances(Proverbs 3:9) 
4. Our Bodies(In purity: 1 Corinthians 6:19, 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5)
5. Our Convictions(Timothy 2:21) 
6. Our honor to others
  • People matter to God; they should matter to us.
We Honor…
1. Honor Up.
A. Civil Leaders- Government, military, police(Romand 13:1-5)
1 Peter 2:17(NIV) Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king. 

B. Social Leaders- Bosses, Teachers, Coaches, etc (Colossians 3:22-25)
C. Home Leadership (Ephesians 5:22-33, Ephesians 6:2)
D. Church/Kingdom Leaders(1Thes 5:12-13, Heb 13:17,1 Tim 5:17)

2. Honor Down
"Following Jesus means we honor people that don't deserve it."
 "We don't honor people based upon their status; we honor them based upon their value." 
Philippians 2:3-4(NIV) Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility, value others above yourselves.

3. Honor All-Around
Romans 12:10 (NLT) Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. 

How do we honor:
1. Words
"Criticism and Cynicism robs your ability to honor."
Honor speaks of the one who brings it." 

2. Action
Hebrews 13:18 (NLT) Pray for us, for our conscience is clear and we want to live honorably in everything we do.
"Tension is where honor is tested."

3. Attitude
Honor starts in the heart.
Isaiah 29:13 (NIV) The Lord says: "These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men.

How do I nurture a honoring spirit.
1-Repent for withholding honor. 
2-Resolve that you are responsible for the honor you bring.
3-Relinquish agendas. (Don't be manipulative.)
4-Reconcile your differences with conversations.
5-Respond with a blessing: Words, actions a note, a gift.

Mephibosheth, Jonathan, Davids best friends sin who happened to be the Son of one of Davids Enemies King Saul-
2 Samuel 9:1(NLT) David asked, "Is there anyone still left of the house of Saul to whom I can show kindness for Jonathan's sake?"
Mephibosheth: in Hebrew Dispeller Exterminator of shame
2 Samuel 9:12 (NLT) And from that time on, Mephibosheth ate regularly at David's table, like one of the king's own sons.

Isaiah 61:7 (NLT) Instead of shame and dishonor, you will enjoy a double share of honor. You will possess a double portion of prosperity in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours.

Our Father-Purging

Acts 17: 24- 28

24 The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples made by human hands. 25 Nor is He served by human hands, as if He needed anything, because He Himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. 26 From one man He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their lands.
27 God intended that they would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. 28 ‘For in Him we live and move and have our being.’

Points of praise
Yours is the Kingdom! 

Philippians 2:9–11 (NIV) 9 God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

2. Yours is the Power.

Colossians 1:15–28 (NIV) 15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy.

3. Yours is the Glory. 

4. Forever

5. Amen
So be it. 

Our Father- Priority

John 16:33 (NIV)
 “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Jesus resurrects the lifeless…
John 11:25 (NLT) “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.”

The resurrection of Jesus is always relevant. 
There were many 
conflicted human experiences… On that First Easter Sunday 2000 years ago. 

John 20:1–2 (NLT) Early on Sunday morning, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and found that the stone had been rolled away from the entrance. 2 She ran and found Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved. She said, “They have taken the Lord’s body out of the tomb, and we don’t know where they have put him!”

John 20:11–16 (NLT) 11 Mary was standing outside the tomb crying, and as she wept, she stooped and looked in. 12 She saw two white-robed angels, one sitting at the head and the other at the foot of the place where the body of Jesus had been lying. 13 “Dear woman, why are you crying?” the angels asked her.  “Because they have taken away my Lord,” she replied, “and I don’t know where they have put him.” 
14 She turned to leave and saw someone standing there. It was Jesus, but she didn’t recognize him. 15 “Dear woman, why are you crying?” Jesus asked her. “Who are you looking for?” 
She thought he was the gardener. “Sir,” she said, “if you have taken him away, tell me where you have put him, and I will go and get him.” 
“Mary!” Jesus said. She turned to him and cried out, “Rabboni!” (which is Hebrew for “Teacher”).

4 Resurrection Encounters.
1. Mary grieving
Grief- Sorrow from suffering loss.
  • “Grief is not a sign of weakness. Grief means we care.”
Isaiah 53:4 (NKJV) Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows.

2. Disciples fearing
John 20:19–22 (NLT)19 That Sunday evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors because they were afraid of the Jewish leaders. Suddenly, Jesus was standing there among them! “Peace be with you,” he said. 20 As he spoke, he showed them the wounds in his hands and his side. They were filled with joy when they saw the Lord! 21 Again he said, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” 22 Then he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.

3. Thomas doubting
John 20:24–28 (NLT)24 One of the twelve disciples, Thomas was not with the others when Jesus came. 25 They told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he replied, “I won’t believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side.” 
26 Eight days later the disciples were together again, and this time Thomas was with them. The doors were locked; but suddenly, as before, Jesus was standing among them. “Peace be with you,” he said. 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don’t be faithless any longer. Believe!” 28 “My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed.

In your doubt, seek him out!

4. Peter filled with shame. 

“Peter followed at a distance…” Luke 22:54

Luke 22:61–62 (NLT) 61 At that moment the Lord turned and looked at Peter. Suddenly, the Lord’s words flashed through Peter’s mind: “Before the rooster crows tomorrow morning, you will deny three times that you even know me.” 62 And Peter left the courtyard, weeping bitterly.

John 21:15–17 (NLT) 15 …Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” Peter replied, “you know I love you.” “Then feed my lambs,” Jesus told him. 16 Jesus repeated the question: “Simon son of John, do you love me?” “Yes, Lord,” Peter said, “you know I love you.” “Then take care of my sheep,” Jesus said. 17 A third time he asked him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, “Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Then feed my sheep.

The Prayer Priority
1. Your Kingdom Come.
Matthew 6:33 (NKJV) But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
  • "Prayer should be driven by the urgency of his kingdom, not the urgency of need."
What is the Kingdom?
What does it look like?
Colossians 1:14 (NLT) He has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son.

Romans 14:17 (NKJV) The kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Luke 17:20–21 (NKJV) "The kingdom of God does not come with observation; 21 nor will they say, 'See here!' or 'See there!' For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you."

2. Your will be done
The will of God happens when His Kingdom is prioritized.
How do I know God's will?
"You know God's will by following God's way."

3. On earth as it is in heaven.
  • God's will is that earth reflects heaven. 
Prayer tip: Pray earth reflects heaven.

One day the earth will become that kingdom. 
Revelation 11:15 (NKJV) Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!"

Praying The Kingdom
1. Permission
  • We not only have full access to approach God we have delegated authority to distribute it.
  • "God is in charge of the product, we are in charge of the distribution."
Matthew 16:19 (NKJV) I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Prayer tip: Pray like you're a partner

2. Power
We have authority over 
anything contrary to what He rules over.
1 Corinthians 4:20 (NKJV) For the kingdom of God is not in word but in power.

Prayer Tip: Pray with Authority.

3. Praise
Psalm 24:7 (NKJV) Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.
Praise is an invasion invitation!

Prayer tip: Celebrate his greatness.

4. Proclamation
Prayer tip: Declare “Kingdom Come. Will of God be done!"

5. Participation 
Because we have permission, we must participate.
