Detecting Toxic Prayer

June 23, 2019 Speaker: John Carroll Series: A Praying People

Topic: A Praying People Passage: Matthew 6:5–6:15

In the sermon on the mount, Jesus made some warnings about "toxic prayer." Praying people will want to be aware of these cases and heed Jesus' warnings.

  1. Replace the toxic prayer of hypocrites with prayer that seeks God’s glory. (Vs. 5-6)
  2. Replace the toxic prayer of Gentiles with prayer informed by a knowledge of the true and living God. (Vs. 7-8)
  3. Replace the toxic prayer of those who refuse to forgive with an attitude of grace, mercy, and forgiveness. (Vs. 14-15)

Consider what God calls you do to:

  • Seek God’s glory alone in prayer both secretly and corporately. Make diligent use of the means of grace (worship, prayer meetings).
  • Pray to Him as your Father with simple, biblically informed words and childlike trust.
  • Forgive from the heart as you have been forgiven
