Praying Big

Here is a message from Peter Mead which we heard at our fellowship day at Feltham Evangelical Church on August 27th.

The message is based on Luke 11: 5-13. Generally I have heard this parable to be taken to teach that we should be persistent in prayer. This always seemed a bit odd to me given that the man in need only asks his neighbour once for the necessary bread.

What Peter brings out is the fact that we should be bold and unashamed in our prayers. We should be happy to disturb our Father in heaven with big requests. The ultimate big request is to ask for the Holy Spirit (see v13). Lots of great teaching in the message about being big and bold in our asking of our God in Father.
