Thoughts and Prayers: Forgiving Prayers
Pastor Kent Landhuis

THEME - Jesus came to provide forgiveness.
TEXT - Luke 23:33-43



1. We pray simple prayers of trust in our Father. We leap and he catches us. 

L - Look to your Father.
E - Expect the Best.
A - Act like a Kid.
P - Put your trust in God.  

2. We have the confidence to ask anything because Jesus is our advocate. He who promised is faithful. Hebrews 10:23

3. We pray God-glorifying prayers that help us connect with God even if it disrupts our lives. God is the potter, we are the clay. John 12:20-36

4. We pray passionate prayers as Jesus prayed in the Garden and we trust that God will help us remain vigilant. Matthew 26:36-46
