Prayer at the Gates

Pastor Jeff Knott begins a sermon series on Prayer from Psalm 24:7 “Lift up your heads, O you gates. Be lifted up, ye ancient doors. That the King of glory may come in.” Some excerpts from the sermon:

“What you let in the gates affects the whole city.”

“What is the blessing of God’s reign? It is peace, the end of fear and faithfulness.”

“Let God arise and His enemies be scattered.”

“God is already at work in our community.”

“Kingdom work is often hidden.”

“How many know you can be so busy you can miss what God is doing?”

“It’s to recognize that He’s already here, already working, but we want to see it, we want to perceive it, we want to join in. Then we want to become sensitive to what He’s doing.”

“Ask the Lord, ‘Show me, Lord.'”

“New Testament parallel is from the Lord’s Prayer – Thy kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”

“We can have some of heaven here.”

“Pray that all that’s true of heaven would be true of us.”

“Pledge to pray – pray for the mission of God in this place.”

“We’re not tourists here, we’re pilgrims.”

“There must be a local expression of the gospel of Christ praying and living for this community.”

“F.B. Meyers said this, ‘The greatest tragedy in life is not unanswered prayer, but unoffered prayer.”

“Pray for this community that the gates would be opened and lives would be transformed.”
