Know Your Bible – Lesson #6, “Your Local Church & Why It Matters”
A New and Living Way
“23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; 24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, 25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:23-25 NASB1995
Paul considers PRAYER paramount. Listing FOUR (4) types of prayer in 1 Timothy 2:1-3:
1. PETITIONS, Supplications – Tend to be prayers to divert evil and negative circumstances from the enemy of our souls;
2. (General) PRAYERS – Petitions for believer’s spiritual and material needs;
3. INTERCESSIONS – Prayers prayed on behalf of the needs of others;
4. THANKSGIVING, “Giving Thanks” – Comes from the Greek word “eucharistia”, which indicates praise to God in the form of being thankful to Him for His loving graces toward us.
