You are the people in your life lost out to determine whether you just say can sure pray in such a way that just don't be awfully hard for you to get around and try to be a even his job as an assessor make it hard.

Arguments may alienate reason may fall on deaf ears. But when you pray for your unsaved friends and family members you're accomplishing far more than you may think hello and thanks for stopping by for today's destined for victory with pastor Paul Sheppard, senior pastor at destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California for the past couple of days.

Pastor Paul is talking about the Lord's prayer given to us by Jesus as a model for us to follow.

We begin by lifting up the name of God, then we lift up the needs of others, and that's why we pick it up today.

Stay with us here or visit Pastor dear any recent testing for Victor message on demand. That's Pastor now here is Pastor Paul.

Today's destined for Victor message, praying effectively for others it's out on people learn how to put out a contract on one of the contract, but I want to hear it again.

Mother say walking with the Lord. These kids by her husband would only come home long enough to make a baby and then he would take off again be in the streets for months at a time. My daddy said his father was the original Rolling Stone whereby he laid his home. We met when he was coming home and all the kind of person when they shot the whole time the same folk like that and see that he come in. No fuss, and that the kids and my dad said that Sabine hated my father when I saw him he was only showing up Sophos to eat whatever my mother had called when he then help make the money that bought the company that you headed home. Somebody all you know you need stuff like that happen.

Some use systems right now some pop up in the house.

After months of being dog sit at the head of the table what the big spiritual grace of God, you know what you would say that man when he walked up in the house my grandmother she would learn how to walk with the Lord and back in those days the women were taught to be much more you know you were know that not not anymore. In the house. If you want my tips on what side you will and somebody all show no tips about hot when the bullet okay so my grandmother had given her 10 kids 10 children. My dad was one of 10. One died relatively young of a birth problem but he had living siblings besides himself all into his adulthood and he said when I was a teenager and he was a comedian when you're one months since of humor. If you knew my dad you would never ask. He was a comedian to his heart and soul in his teens. He had a drama teacher in school that said you were going to go to Hollywood. You have such a keen sense of humor. You will go to Hollywood. This teacher said I'll see to that. And my dad caught the vision that this teacher planted of him going to Hollywood to be a comedian in his day there was a comedian on TV named Jack Bailey and Jack Benny had a black sidekick named Chester and Siegel talk about and Rochester was the one black person that he and other black kids will see, so you can do comedy and make good money and be famous at all and that plus what this lady said to him, he went home even know what he was running up again. Went home and told my grandmother mama will become a come, come back will put you in a big medical have to suffer like this will make a lot of money and I will come back and take you. But all she heard was this boy think he's going to Hollywood. See back in those days they didn't believe you could go to Hollywood and be saved. So, you going to Hollywood was tantamount to saying mama before I go to hell, go to Hollywood and what that means mama doing go to hell. But before I go, put your big house so it leaves you comfortable in a big house while I'm inhaled. That's what she heard. My mother looked at him and subordinate me tell you something when I was pregnant with you when you will one day I laid my head on my belly and said, Lord, I want you to make a preacher out of this one only one of her children. She prayed that inspire prayer about what I want to make a preacher out of this one. Sometime the Holy Spirit to give you some insight annually know where it came from the Holy Spirit told how to pray that prayer and she said to him, boy, do you think, lets you go to Hollywood and go to hell from Hollywood. When I played that old were you. She said when the deaths bring you in this world you little talk real dramatic went down the deaths door to bring you into this world you see that you got nothing, she said before I let that happen. I will pray that God will save you one day and kill you. The next is exactly what she said to her son. That's what you call a prayer is a prayer contract board you will mess around you fool around with me because you will just say that the first thing you will just say I'm not going turn loose the horns. A prayer to you just say and then not only are you will live you will preach the gospel. She told him that he's a young teenager, dream of being rich and famous and she said no you will be saved and you will become a preacher and my daddy pastored for 45 years. In answer to his mother's prayer, but he was a pastor for 45 years. That's what plan can do for you need to learn to play all the people in your life lost now to determine whether you just say, but I can sure pray in such a way that is going be awfully hard for you to get around them prayers and try to be a even usually runs and that's your job as an assessor make it hard for full no guarantee that they just say that's not up to you but you can put such against them until they got to figure out because the government were were not only was that true appraisal. The unsaved loved ones today guy saved when parents Christian parents would not raise children who were comfortable not be insane. The kids were still in the house. I can make you just say, but I will make it hard for you to be a sinner in here. You know it's up to you whether you come to know Jesus that between you and the Lord but I can make it call for you to be a decent sinner in my house I just mentioned that I know y'all never heard even thought anything like that because now they got children selling dope out your house and fornicate and bring little raggedy friends all look on the on the bed you bought. I just am sorry I just can't it just I can. It messes with me.

I cannot watch the way Seminole parent in this when you know you have to let the children be I don't complement the children world. I'm sorry put up with me. I don't complement the children world I come from the children to do what I tell the world. So your student. I know times are different now. Times are different now, but you can build a bomb in my house it just I just come from a different girl got the building will box it was in their bonnet you understand me so you know how to pray for the dead. He has difficulty dealing with the way things are done that day.

I never heard anything. Haber asked me don't tell me don't worry about it don't work for the key words about everything up in here. Everything you see itself all the question I will answer that makes the rocket understand you better sound right wow you give me so sorry but I don't know how to pray for me I can't do much other stuff doesn't work for me.

Be specific about their needs for more practical advice and how to pray for the people in your life is going out of the rest of today's message, praying effectively for other people. Once again, here's pastor Paul how big you are what you weigh more than you some talk to me like that again.

I know you told you I will climb a ladder and knock you upside your head. No, no, no you're talking that's abuse, but he got not what it was my day you say the wrong thing when my friends and I found myself picking myself up back to reality. Alright, so we learn to play that God will in the lives of people does it. You cannot match of it happening but God can do exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or even a god knows how to save us even God knows how to save somebody you will find for them ever turned in their life around.

He can take instruction and put them on the road of eternal life.

So your job is to facilitate that your prayers so called ones when you pray called their name to the Lord. Pray for them by name and by specific need. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth in their life just like you will is being done in heaven. Lord, let your will be done in Junior's life and Mama's life.

This is what I'm asking you to do and make that a regular practice in your life so you want to pray that God's kingdom, God's will be done in your brain on behalf of others. First is your brain on behalf of people who don't yet know the Lord your praying that God would save them, call them specifically by Nancy. I know our hearts want to say Lord save everybody that's not a practical prayer so target people look at military operations.

You can learn how to fight warfare by looking at military operations, military operations don't drop indiscriminate bombs. Just let it go to see who it hits no general does that. They say Isis is in that cave and so they target them make their doing surveillance. We don't know we live our lives here in America just doing things but we don't know that our commanders are doing all, covert operations throughout the world finding the enemies of freedom, the enemies of faith and they are strategically walking and next thing we hear on the news they killed such a terrorist leader what they been targeting them for months you didn't know it because they couldn't tell you they told you they tell them you see what I'm saying spiritually the same way some people some issues because I want to see happen in that area and so you target people in prayer the people you want them to get say that some people there say, but they show still need some help. How many of us know. Some say folks will be some serious help in exactly so they got me on your premise to don't just target unsafe old to get say okay that's all we know something we want to start. Pray hard about Ontario look like because by then they could fall in the false complacency will I know the Lord.

But now the enemy see if the enemy can't take you away from the kingdom of God. He's going to at least make sure that your life on earth is perfectly bound up perfectly miserable, perfectly messed up and how many know didn't say doesn't straighten out all your problems to say sometimes put you in a position where you come to see just how jacked up you really are because now you have a spiritual enemy like that you know Jesus like that you're trying to see the kingdom, and the will of God. And so he's going to target you but you got say you hit up demonic forces and they began to plot and scout your life and watch your movements to the devil is not omniscient, let me give you some understanding the devil is not omniscient, meaning enemy forces don't know everything God is omniscient.

He knows all. Satan is a fallen being the demons in his army are fallen beings. They don't know all they know what they learn they learn because they watch you familiar spirits.

When you hear familiar spirits. When you read in the Bible. What's a familiar spirit of familial spirit spirit assigned to your family generations ago and they been watching y'all the whole time. When you have your baby that there watching from the spiritual realm watching you watching that baby develop watching the patterns in your home is sound scary good at make you pray because them to the real don't you act like everything that's true is what you see what your natural saying world you see in this world and they're targeting you and they watch your temperament and they watch your movements and they watch your tendencies and then later feeding information constantly to other demons, and the bottom line is they're all arrayed against you and your family. That's why I'm so glad to be say because now that I know Jesus, I get to read scriptures that apply to me, such as a people in the world but once in all of them call somebody that time. Of course, because I one living in me got me.

I can't get off course. I have been golf course. I know what it's like. But it walks circumspectly the King James says that means that your capital if you're mindful of your walk. If you do what God tells you the enemy can throw you off course, but you seek to do whatever we can wonder about it ever again. How is it that some families just have the site look like the same bondage is through the whole family is a reason. It's a spiritual reason the enemy has infected that family planning is trying to keep that pattern going. We called him general Rachel curses not just spiritual language that results right behind that but devil likes to insert something you should know. And if you're not careful you will get caught up in it. There are families that are generationally plagued with alcoholism.

Yes I know there is a biological element. I'm not disputing that at all. But that doesn't account for the loan, but devil is the agitator practices that are against your will be. He's the agitator he loves to influence you in the wrong way, there are families that have all, besetting sins boy.

All of those marriages break up in divorce. Even the ones that started out good buddy and that family, divorce. There's something generational going on in the spirit realm. So what you do when you say you gotta learn to pray not only targeting folklore and say what targeting people against generational curses. You got a say in Jesus name we will not see that the rest of our family and run so I continue in Jesus name there.
