Why you need this to be a World Changer

  1. The Bible is our guide to make it through our daily life.
    Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Psalm 119:105
  2. God will answer our prayers and do incredible things through us.
    Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know. Jeremiah 33:3

God tells us through the Bible…
(II Timothy 3:16-17)

  1. What is right! - Doctrine.
    Jesus said to him, "you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: Your shall love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:37-39
  2. What is wrong! - Reproof. These six things the Lord hate, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: a proud look, a lying tongue, hand that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.
    Proverbs 6:16-19
  3. How to get right! - Correction. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. I John 1:9-10
  4. How to stay right! - Instruction in righteousness. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:1-2

How to Pray …

  1. Praise God for how great He is - Adoration.
    Therefore by Him let us continually offer the sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of our lips, giving thanks to His name. Hebrews 13:15
  2. Confess your sins - Forgiveness.
    If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:9
  3. Express your gratitude for all God has done for you - Thanksgiving.
    Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Psalm 118:1
  4. Pray for others - Intercession.
    Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men. I Timothy 2:1
  5. Ask God for the things you need - Supplication.
    If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5

How to communicate with God

  1. Have a set time and place each day when and where you spend with God.
  2. Keep a journal of what God is saying to you.
  3. Don't give up … be persistent.

One Last Thought

God communicates with us through both the Bible and prayer. He can not talk with us, though, if we do not know Him personally or spend time with Him on a regular basis!
