#PrayFor | #Trending Part 3 | Draper

Series Thesis: It’s always RISKY to go with what’s TRENDY.

PrayFor: A desire to show public concern and compassion in a spiritual way.

Think About it: How you pray reveals how you think.

Question: Is prayer just a spiritual exchange system?

Answer: Prayer isn’t about exchanging information, it’s entering into INTIMACY.

Matthew‬ ‭6:5-8‬ “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.”
Two Kinds of Prayer

1. Business Arrangement – Focuses on the EXCHANGE.

2. Family Arrangement – Focuses on the RELATIONSHIP.

Prayer reminds us to HONOR God for who He is and to SUBMIT patiently to all He allows.

Matthew‬ ‭6:9-10 “This, then, is how you should pray: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.'”

Prayer gives us perspective on how DEPENDENT we are on God.

Matthew 6:11 “Give us today our daily bread.”

“God will always give you what you would’ve asked for, if you knew everything He knows.” – Tim Keller

Prayer helps us remember that because we’re FORGIVEN, we can forgive others.

Matthew 6: 12-13 “And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”

Three Next Steps For Prayer:

1. DECLARE God’s glory.

2. SURRENDER your will.

3. ACKNOWLEDGE your dependence.

Luke 22:42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.”

Bottom Line: The purpose of prayer is to surrender our will, not to IMPOSE it.


1. What do you think the purpose of prayer is? How has this message changed how you think about prayer?

2. We said in the message: “How you pray reveals how you think.” Do you agree or disagree with this and why?

3. Look at the two kinds of prayer. Do you go back and forth between these two if and when you pray?

4. Read the Tim Keller quote. What is Keller pointing out about what we should expect when we ask God for something in prayer?

5. Have you ever thought of prayer as the place to surrender your will to God’s? If you did this on a regular basis, what would your prayer life look like?
