Key Scriptures: Luke 10:38-42

The Big Idea:

Prayer must become the foundation of your relationship with the Lord. As a Christian, one of the most important things you can do is just sit at the feet of Jesus. We are living in a kairos moment, and prayer can not just be a sentiment or a nice thought. Prayer must become a priority!

Main Points:

  1. Priority Of Prayer

    • In Luke 10:42, Jesus told Martha there was only one thing worth being concerned about and Mary had discovered it.
      • This Scripture shows us just how much Jesus desires us to spend time with Him.
    • Pray first and pray early!
  2. Perseverance Of Prayer

    • Prayer is a discipline.
    • Your body will scream no, so you must allow your spirit to lead.

Discussion Questions:

Can you imagine living when Jesus walked this earth? If you were to take a look at your own life today, where would you find yourself? Would you be like Martha, constantly concerned about what task needed to be done?

Mary wanted to sit at the feet of Jesus; it was the only thing she truly cared about. Do you see yourself consumed with all the worries of your day when you wake up? What is the first thing you think about when you wake up?


This week, make it your mission to pray with expectation! The world is crying out for a Rescuer. It can feel overwhelming to read the news and scroll through social media, but the power of prayer can shift the atmosphere. Pray early, pray first, and pray all the time!
