The Power of Prayer

A Sermon on Hebrews 10:19-22


Hebrews 10:19-22 ESV NASB KJV

Sermon Description

Prayer is vital to the Christian. So when this fails, everything else seems to go. Listen to this sermon on Hebrews 10:19-22 as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones preaches on the great fight man is engaged in. Look at the instruction Christ provided on the difficult task of prayer. Why is prayer difficult? Learn about the grandeur of entering into the presence of God. There can be no confidence in prayer until the accusing conscience is dealt with. Man's heart is polluted by sin, and he is desperately in need of a sincere heart. Look at the hope of Psalm 51 and passages in the New Testament that show the possibility of going before God in boldness! There is a new and living way – no longer bound to the temporality of priests who die. Find a firm foundation in the shed blood of the Son of God. Prayer is not merely psychology, it is God's way to walk in confidence before Him. There is a needed sincerity and purity of heart that is required. You must deal with your conscience. Christ was punished and He literally rose again. You cannot resist the devil without this doctrine. Deal with your one remaining problem and rejoice in the hope God has given.

Itinerant Preaching

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) was a Welsh evangelical minister who preached and taught in the Reformed tradition. His principal ministry was at Westminster Chapel, in central London, from 1939-1968, where he delivered multi-year expositions on books of the bible such as Romans, Ephesians and the Gospel of John. In addition to the MLJ Trust’s collection of 1,600 of these sermons in audio format, most of these great sermon series are available in book form (including a 14 volume collection of the Romans sermons), as are other series such as "Spiritual Depression", "Studies in the Sermon on the Mount" and "Great Biblical Doctrines". He is considered by many evangelical leaders today to be an authority on biblical truth and the sufficiency of Scripture.
