Notes:

Luke 11:1 Our first prayer should be -- "Lord teach us to pray."

Verses 2-4 He provides a basic outline of things we should pray for daily.

Verses 5-10 The emphasis is not on God's unwillingness to answer, rather our willingness to ask. We must exercise free will and be persistent.

Verses 11-13 God will always give us what is the best for us.

Luke 18:1-8 We ought to pray and not lose heart. Prayer and faith are always connected.

Verses 9-17 He who humbles himself will be exalted. Genuine prayer is the act of a humble soul.

Matthew 21:12-17 The church should be a HOUSE OF PRAYER.

Verses 18-22 "All things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive."

Psalms 16:2 The great object of prayer is not any particular blessing or request, rather the Lord Himself. We are to seek the Blesser more than the blessing.

Verse 3 David delighted in the fellowship of other believers.

Verse 5 The cup given to David was -- "The LORD is the portion of my inheritance."

Verse 6 The lines that marked out the allotment of David's inheritance had indeed fallen unto pleasant places. David's share was the Lord.

Verse 11 The fullness of joy is found in His presence.

Jeremiah 7:1-26 We should not expect God to answer our prayers if we turn His house into a den of robbers.
