Bill Johnson (March-11-2020) Sermon: Fasting Into a Lifestyle of Prayer (Matthew 26:41). Great teaching from Bill on the power of a prayer-soaked life. Quotes: “The disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. That moves me, because it was the only thing they asked to be taught. For those who watched Him, that was the key to everything. We’ll go to Matthew 26:41 “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” “Watch and pray lest you enter into temptation.’” That tells me that prayerlessness, or weakness in prayer, exposes me to temptation I didn't need to face. I don't believe He's saying, “Pray this way, “Oh God, please don't lead me into temptation.” I don't think that's what He's addressing here. I think He's saying a prayerful life insulates you from temptation. The goal is a life of on-going prayer. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
