Sermon Notes

“When You Pray”

Bishop E John Citizen


Stand Firm on Your Faith

Matthew 21:22 ESV

22 And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith."


    • If you have faith when you pray, all the high walls will come down, despite all your doubts and ridicule of others.

    Joshua 6:20 ESV

    20 So the people shouted, and the trumpets were blown. As soon as the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted a great shout, and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they captured the city.


    • If you have faith as David did for victory over Goliath, when you pray in Jesus name, your faith will be rewarded. 

    1 Samuel 17:45,47 ESV

    45 Then David said to the Philistine, "You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin, but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

    47 and that all this assembly may know that the Lord saves not with sword and spear. For the battle is the Lord's, and he will give you into our hand."




    • If you have faith as Bartimaeus when you can't see, but, when you pray believing He can, then, Jesus will do it! 

    Mark 10:52 ESV

    52 And Jesus said to him, "Go your way; your faith has made you well." And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him on the way.
