David Platt discussed on Pray the Word with David Platt


Free the word with david platt is a resource from radical not new matthew chapter six verse seven right before jesus gives us the lord's prayer says when you pray do not heap up empty phrases as the gentiles do for they think they will be heard for their many words do not be like them for your father knows what you need before you ask him those two verses are astounding to think about so jesus say don't heap up empty phrases like the gentiles do they think they're gonna be heard because they're they're just use and all kinds of words he says don't be like them because why your father in heaven knows what need before you even ask him so apparently god is not a thin heaven when were praying with like a stent pad like riding down wherever we say in said all thank you for mentioning that i i didn't realize that ought to know that was going on like he already knows what we need before we even ask him which if we really think about that causes us to then asked the question well if he already knows what i need then why am i am asking him in the first place fairly knows what i need what's the point of prayer and as soon as we asked that question were on the verge of a major breakthrough in prayer because were starting to realize that the primary purpose of prayer is not to get some thing but the knows some one.
