The Guts to Pray


“The Guts to Pray” Luke 11:1-13

The Guts of Prayer

  • Address: Our dear Father.

  • Statement one: God, you are Holy.

  • Statement two: Bring your kingdom rule.

  • Request one: Provide our Provider.

  • Request two: Forgive as we forgive our Forgiver.

  • Request three: Deliver us our Deliverer.

Pray with Guts

When praying

  • be bold,

  • be aggressive,

  • be shameless,

  • be persistent in seeking the needs of others.

The Guts to Pray

Don’t stop pursuing God in prayer, because He is your gracious loving Father.

DEVOTIONAL: personal and small groups

Focus Point: Prayer- depend on God for everything

Background: Tax collectors taxed their own people for the Romans who occupied their homeland. They also used their power to take extra money for themselves. On the other hand, the Pharisees were the religious leaders and guides for the Jewish community.

Read Luke 18:9-14 “Who is accepted by God?”

  • Who is less or more deserving of God’s blessings that you and why? (v.9)

  • Who do you believe felt more comfortable going to public prayer and worship at the temple, why?

  • Do you feel more or less deserving than those around you at worship on Sunday, why?

  • What was the Pharisee’s attitude toward God and himself?

  • What was the Tax Collector’s attitude toward God and himself?

  • The Pharisee made no request of God but spoke about the Tax Collector. Whereas the Tax Collector made no mention of the Pharisee but made a request to God. Why the contrast?

  • Why was the Tax Collector justified and accepted before God and not the Pharisee?

  • In what areas of your life do you need to apply the lesson in v.14?
