Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

Knowing God Through Prayer: His Desire – Our Pursuit

1.  It is prayed for believers to progress in knowing God:  John 17:1-3

J. I. Packer –  “What were we made for?  Knowing God.  What should our aim in life be?  Knowing God.  What is the best thing in life?  Knowing God.  What is the eternal life Christ gives?  Knowing God.  What in us gives God the most pleasure?  Knowing God.”

2.  It is a prayer God delights in answering: Matthew 7:11, Genesis 3:7-9, Hosea 6:1-6, Isaiah 1:1-3; 18, John 9:35-38, Ephesians 1:3-14, Hosea 4:1-6
