Hands Up – 1 Timothy 2:8 (6-17-18)

 

Hands Up – 1 Timothy 2:18

HOW CAN A MAN TAKE HIS PLACE AND MAKE HIS MARK?

FOR BEST RESULTS, PRAY!

I TIMOTHY ANSWERS.

2:1 – PUT PRAYER AS A PRIORITY.

“FIRST” – PRAYER COMES BEFORE, NOT AS AN AFTERTHOUGHT.

“EXHORT” = I APPEAL.

PRAY WITH “SPIT”!

“SPIT” = SUPPLICATIONS, PRAYERS, INTERCESSIONS, THANKSGIVING.

PRAY FOR SALVATION.

IT’S GOD’S PLEASURE.  2:2-4

IT’S GOD’S PROVISION.  2:5-6

2:8 – MAKE IT A MANLY PRIORITY.

“MEN” – MEN’S PRAYERS ARE ESSENTIAL – AND AN EXAMPLE.

“DESIRE” = I ADVISE.

PRAY REGULARLY.

PRAY RIGHTEOUSLY.

ANY SIN WILL DO IT (Ps. 66:18), BUT THIS VERSE GIVES US 2 TO WATCH:

ANGER (James 1:19)

ARGUING (Philippians 2:14)

 

PRAY FOR THE DANIELS BECAUSE THEY’RE . . OUT OF SIGHT.  REMEMBER!

SERVING THE LORD IS SOMETIMES VERY VISIBLE.

SERVING THE LORD IS SOMETIMES NEARLY INVISIBLE.

PRAY FOR THE DANIELS BECAUSE THEY’RE . . OUT IN FLIGHT.  REALIZE!

THERE’S AN ELEMENT OF DANGER.  WE PRAY FOR THEIR SAFETY.  (II Th. 3:1-3)

THERE’S AN ELEMENT OF OPPORTUNITY. WE PRAY FOR OTHERS’ SALVATION.

Eph. 6:19-20 – BOTH VERSES MENTION THE WORD “BOLDLY”.

Col. 4:3-4 – BOTH PASSAGES MENTION THE WORD “OPEN”.
