A Heart for Prayer

A Vision for Your Heart – Part 6


Prov. 4:23 (MSG) - Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts.


My vision is that I (we) would increasingly develop:

  1. A heart for God 3. A heart for the lost                  5. A heart for discipleship
  2. A heart for the local church 4. A heart for service


  1. A heart for prayer - Commit to prayer as a way of life in Christ. Choose to develop a dependence on God through prayer. Birth all kingdom building or kingdom expanding efforts in prayer.


Questions to help evaluate my heart for prayer:


16 Rejoice always, 1 Thess. 5:16 (ESV)


1.) How am I finding ____________________________________ in what God is doing in my life?




17 pray without ceasing, 1 Thess. 5:17 (ESV)


2.) How am I developing________________________________________________ with God as I go through life?





18 give thanks in all circumstances… 1 Thess. 5:18 (ESV)


3.) How am I _________________________________________ in every circumstance I find myself in?





...for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thess. 5:18 (ESV)


4.) How am I _________________________________________ as God’s will for my life?





Is it my vision to develop a heart for prayer?
