This morning's message was a bit different in that it came from DHQ. Apparently, all corps in the division got the same message on DVD which is quite an interesting way of delivery it.
There was no reading as such but Luke 11 featured in the talk. And now for my copious notes.
People are marked by many things - drugs, success, failure, etc. As christians, our live should be marked by prayer.
In Luke 11 one of the disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray and He gave them The Lord's Prayer.
Prayer shouldn't be all about ourselves, should be us giving God our "shopping list", but about His kingdom.
One thing we're told in Luke 11 is that we should ask, seek and knock but to be persistent about it - keep asking, keep seeking and keep knocking. William Booth said we should "pray like everything depends on prayer"
Don't go to God just in times of emergency but all the time. Be in constant communion with God.
The future depends on us waiting for God!
