Jesus The Mighty Prayer Warrior - Pastor Ron Halvorsen

The Bible records various instances when Jesus prayed to the father. For instance it records that Jesus prayed alone early in the morning in the wilderness. It is during one of these encounters that the disciples found Him praying that they were so impressed that they asked him to teach them how to pray. This resulted in Christ teaching us the Lord's prayer.

By the way, it can also be inferred from this incident that Christ prayed out aloud. How else would the disciples have have heard Him if he was offering a silent prayer?

The prayer life of Jesus evidences the  life of a mighty prayer warrior. During his prayer in the garden of Gethsemane the Bible records in Luke 22:44 — "And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground." This was most definitely not those prayers we offer while in our blankets. This was an earnest prayer that expressed the deeper longings of  His heart.

The bible records that He prayed before choosing the 12 disciples and in other important decisions of His ministry on earth. If the sinless Son of God prayed like this, how then should we sinful human beings pray. We definitely cannot afford to be casual about our prayers. We need to wrestle with God in prayer just like Jacob wrestled with the angel of the Lord.

In the following video, Pastor Ron Halvorsen. preaches a sermon titled, Jesus The Mighty Prayer Warrior. It is a sermon that will challenge to a powerful prayer life in your christian walk.
