The prayer that changes everything
December 14, 2012
“I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.”
I remember when I first became a preacher and had just taken the role of Senior Pastor at a particular church. I was preaching on today’s passage from John about how Jesus prayed for believers. At the end of the sermon, a man came to me with tears in his eyes and said, “Pastor, that’s wonderful… Jesus is praying for me!”
You know, I had never thought about it like that. Jesus’ prayer nearly 2000 years ago has just as much impact on us today as it did the day He prayed it. It’s as if He’s right here with us today, praying for us at every turn.
So let me ask you a question: If you knew that Jesus Christ was praying for you right now, would that make a difference in the way you face life each and every day? If you knew the living Son of God had His hands on you praying over you, then it should change everything!
Time and distance make no difference. Jesus Christ’s prayer is affecting you right now. And you can face the challenges and the battles of life knowing that He has approached the Father for you. Do you believe that? If so, live your life with an unbreakable resolve to make a powerful difference for His name!
BECAUSE JESUS PRAYS FOR YOU, YOU CAN OVERCOME ANY CIRCUMSTANCE AND MAKE A POWERFUL DIFFERENCE FOR HIS NAME!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
