Prayer Summary for July 28

Scripture Focus…

(9) “Pray, therefore, like this: Our Father Who is in heaven, hallowed (kept holy) 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 also have forgiven (left, remitted, and let go of the debts, and have given up resentment against) our debtors. (13) And lead (bring) us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.”
(Matthew 6:9–13 Amp.)


The following excerpt is taken from A Better Way to Pray by Andrew Wommack:

Make a Prayer Sandwich!

Christ’s model prayer started with praise: “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name…” and ended with praise: “…For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matt. 6:9, 13). This is what I like to call the “Sandwich Technique.” Start your prayer thanking Him, praising Him, and declaring how big He is. Then, slide in your petition and end by praising Him some more. When you approach God with your request by slipping it in between two healthy slices of praise and thanksgiving, you’ll find that you don’t really have that much to ask Him for.

“Oh God, the doctor told me that I’m going to die! I remember this same condition killed Aunt Suzie. It’s so bad!” That kind of “praying” just discourages you. It builds up fear and depression. What if you prayed more like this? “Father, thank You that Your name is above every name. Cancer has a name. AIDS has a name. These things the doctor told me are in my body have names. You are above them all! Thank You that You are greater, stronger, and more powerful than all of this!” Spend another five or ten minutes just praising Him for His greatness, then by the time you’re ready to put your request in, it’d be more like, “Father, this is so small in comparison to what You’re able to do. I shouldn’t even have to ask, but the doctor did say that I’m going to die. So since Jesus has already provided my healing, I’ll just receive it!” Then go back to praising and worshiping Him. In light of who God is, nothing is really that big of a problem.

Many people pray, “Our Judge, which art in heaven. You are so very far away. Oh God, I’m going to die…” and then spend forty minutes talking about what the doctor said before ending with, “… heal me in the name of Jesus, if it by Thy will” and wonder why they’re depressed. That’s a depressing, ineffective prayer! The only one going to answer that type of prayer is the devil.


Whatever you focus on will magnify in your eyes. Focus on the problem and it’ll grow. Focus on God (who is your solution) and your vision of Him will increase. This is why the direction of your prayer is so important. Will you choose to magnify God or your problem? The one you magnify will grow stronger in your life and the other weaker.

A huge amount of prayer ought to be praise! Praise is important because it blesses God and strengthens you. The Lord inhabits the praises of His people. (Ps. 22:3.) That’s the main reason why church services usually start with praise and worship!

One of the words in the original language for prayer literally means “worship.” Another means “to kiss the face.” Prayer is worship and worship is prayer. Prayer is kissing our Father’s face. Prayer is loving and communing with God.
