PRAYER PRECEDED POWER

INTRODUCTION

A. Every day, the Disciples saw Jesus do miraculous things…

B. Note, they did not ask Jesus to teach them how to do those things

1. They did not ask to be taught how to walk on water…

2. They did not ask to be taught how to cast out demons…

3. They did not ask to be taught how to heal the sick…

4. They did not ask to be taught how to raise the dead…

C. They recognized that the ability to do those things were grounded in Jesus’

prayer life
