    What to Pray for? 'Living Free' Series: http://www.ydyc.org/watch/living-free/ Session 5 Part 2: http://www.ydyc.org/media/video/living-free-series/session-five/what-to-pray-for/ In this movie you will learn how to pray, and what to pray for. You can download the Bible-based prayer to enable you to continue to pray daily for your unsaved loved ones and friends. In addition, let the great men of the Bible be an example to us, showing us to what to pray for in order to see our friends and families have a change of heart and life. Pray for a revelation of God's love "I pray that you... will have the power to understand the greatness of God's love." (Ephesians 3:19) Pray that you will live a life of love "I pray that Christ will live in your hearts by faith and that your life will be strong in love and built on love." (Ephesians 3:17) Pray for your life to be a witness The Apostle Paul prayed "that you may walk (live and conduct yourselves) in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him in all things." (Colossians 1:10) Pray for a burden for the lost The Apostle Paul was passionate. He longed and prayed to God, "that they may be saved." (Romans 10:1) Pray for gratitude "I pray that you will be grateful to God for letting you have part in what he has promised his people in the kingdom of light." (Colossians 1:12) Pray that you'll be without fear: The Apostle Paul asked others to pray for him, "that when I speak, God will give me words so that I can tell the secret of the Good News without fear." (Ephesians 6:19) Pray for boldness Saint Luke prayed, "Lord, take notice of the threats they have made, and allow us, your servants, to speak your message with all boldness." (Acts 4:29) Pray for a great revelation of God's power "I pray that... you will know that God's power is great." (Ephesians 1:19) Pray for wisdom "We always pray that God will show you everything he wants you to do and that you may have all the wisdom and understanding that his Spirit gives." (Colossians 1:9) Pray for endurance The Apostle Paul encourages us to "pray on every occasion, as the Spirit leads. For this reason keep alert and never give up." (Ephesians 6:18) Prayer is doing business with God Prayer is actually doing business with the Ruler of the Universe. As Virginia Whitman so beautifully explains in her book 'Mustard', "When you have a desire or need for something, be it commodity or a service, you make contact with a person or firm you presume could give you satisfaction. What follows is termed 'doing business' with them. Prayer is doing business with God, and is every bit as practical as any earthy transaction."

    Religion vs Christianity? 'Living Free' Series: http://www.ydyc.org/watch/living-free/ Session 4 Part 2: http://www.ydyc.org/media/video/living-free-series/session-four/religion-vs-christianity/ St. Augustine once said that, "There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God, the Creator, made known through Jesus." Human experience bears out the truth of Augustine's statement in that within every person, no matter the age in which they live, or the culture in which they reside, every person has a vacuum that cannot be filled. We know this to be true because we watch all manner of people indulge in all kinds of activity and behaviour trying to find something that will fulfil them. People use religion to try to fill the vacuum that was meant to be filled by God. So let's look at the difference between Religion vs Christianity. - Religion is man's attempt to reach up to God. - Christianity is God reaching down to mankind. We learn about Christianity in the Bible. In the book of Romans we read, "We aren't saved from sin's grasp by knowing the commandments of God, because we can't and don't keep them, but God put into effect a different plan to save us. He sent his own Son in a human body like ours - except that ours are sinful - and destroyed sin's control over us by giving himself as a sacrifice for our sins." (Romans 8:3) - Religion is about what I do. - Christianity is about what Jesus did for me. In the book of Ephesians in the Bible, it says, "It is by God's grace that you have been saved through faith. It is not the result of your own efforts, but God's gift, so that no one can boast about it." (Ephesians 2:8) - Religion is about following a set of rules and rituals in order to get God's acceptance. - Christianity is about God accepting me because of what Jesus did when he died for me; therefore I obey him in gratitude. The Bible says in the book of Romans, "God treats us much better than we deserve, and because of Christ Jesus, he freely accepts us and sets us free from our sins". (Romans 3:24) God wants to set you free! Learn how much Jesus loves you, and how it shows you the difference between Religion vs Christianity in 'Session Four - Part Two: Religion vs Christianity'.

    What is Hope? 'Living Free' Series: http://www.ydyc.org/watch/living-free/ Session 4 Part 1: http://www.ydyc.org/media/video/living-free-series/session-four/what-is-hope/ The word 'hope' for many means 'wishful thinking'. With sayings like: I hope you're feeling better tomorrow. We can only hope they'll survive. We are hoping the strike will end soon. I hope I haven't bored you. I hope you are all well. I hope she will treat you well. The word 'hope' in the Bible is different. It expresses confidence and assurance concerning the future, because it's based on God's promises, character and faithfulness. The video you are about to view is based on the promises of God. It'll give you hope if you struggle with addictions, habit, vice, or a weakness. Some people have more of a bias toward weaknesses, physical or emotional, than others. I hate that! Hopelessness is when you feel that all hope has gone. I know that feeling well - like when I learnt that my two grandchildren have Asperger's Syndrome. But God's promises are changing them and they are doing really well now. Bible hope quotes: "Why am I so sad? Why am I so troubled? I will put my hope in God." (Psalm 43:5) "The eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love." (Romans 15:13) "Because of this, my heart will be glad, my words will be joyful, and I will live in hope." (Acts 2:26) Because of God's love for you, you can find a new beginning and live in hope today too! Learn 'What is Hope' and how to be free and in 'Session Four - Part One: What is Hope?'.

    God and Love 'Living Free' Series: http://www.ydyc.org/watch/living-free/ Session 3 Part 2: http://www.ydyc.org/media/video/living-free-series/session-three/god-and-love/ Faith works through love. That is why it is so vitally important to know that you are loved and accepted by God and that he wants to answer your prayers. When people fall in love it is difficult to think of anything but the object of their love. Prayer involves this type of love for God. Hope Macdonald explains, "I like to think of prayer as a conversation between two friends who love and understand each other." My husband and I had just returned from 15 years working as missionaries in Ethiopia. As I lay in bed one night desiring to experience more of God's love and power an overwhelming presence of the Holy Spirit came upon me and I was filled with his love. Shortly after, I felt he wanted us as a family to own our own home. With $500.00 dollars in hand, the bank advised my husband and I how much we would need for a deposit and how much we could borrow. Within a week God had wonderfully supplied the deposit and the day we purchased our first home we were notified that an old lady, whom my husband visited some 20 years previously, had died and left us money in her will. This meant that we were able to furnish our home. Can you imagine our excitement seeing God in his love act in response to our faith in him! Learn about God and Love, discover just how much Jesus loves you and what he has done for you, as well as learn several bible scriptures and verses on God's love in 'Session Three - Part Two: God and Love'.

    What Is The Bible About? 'Living Free' Series: http://www.ydyc.org/watch/living-free/ Session 3 Part 1: http://www.ydyc.org/media/video/living-free-series/session-three/what-is-the-bible-about/ The Bible is primarily about you, giving the standard for a meaningful life, the revelation of Jesus and the key to true freedom and liberty. The Bible is also known as the Word of God and the Scriptures. The Bible is the inspired Word of God: What does it mean that the Bible is inspired? The word 'inspiration' simply means 'God-breathed'. As we read in the book of Timothy in the Bible,"All Scripture is God-breathed." When people speak of the Bible as inspired, they are referring to the fact that God divinely influenced the human authors of the Scriptures in such a way that what they wrote was what God wanted us to know. Inspiration means the Bible truly is the Word of God and makes it unique among all other books. The Bible is God's workshop manual: The Bible is God's way, the creator of the Universe, of communicating to his creation. Each of the 66 books in the Bible has a different theme and a different way of showing us who God is and teaching us his way. As the Bible says, "All Scripture is given by God and is useful for teaching, for showing people what is wrong in their lives, for correcting faults, and for teaching how to live right." (2 Timothy 3:16) The Bible is the source of truth: The Bible is truthful because it proceeds out of the mouth of God and it is impossible for God to lie. In John's gospel we read, "Your word is the truth. So let this truth make them completely yours." (John17:17) The Bible is powerful: The Bible says in the book of Hebrews, "Whatever God says to us is full of living power: it is sharper than the sharpest dagger, cutting swift and deep into our innermost thoughts and desires with all their parts, exposing us for what we really are." (Hebrews 4:12) Learn 'what is the Bible about, where God is, and what is faith. Watch online or download free: http://www.ydyc.org/

    How to Pray? 'Living Free' Series: http://www.ydyc.org/watch/living-free/ Session 2 Part 2: http://www.ydyc.org/media/video/living-free-series/session-two/how-to-pray/ Prayer is the method through which the spiritual realm is brought into our everyday lives. Dr R. A. Torrey preached, "We live in a day characterized by multiplication of man's machinery and the diminution of God's power. The cry of our day is work, work, work, work, organize, organize, organize, give us some new society, tell us some new methods, and devise new machinery: but the great need of our day is prayer." Does prayer work? If more people believed prayer worked, more people would pray! I know prayer works because I have seen many answers to prayer. Allow me to share with you just one! Jessica woke one day to the shock that her husband had left her. The following week her teenage daughter left home confused and rebellious. For six months her daughter did not contact Jessica because she feared her mother would disapprove of the way she was living. In despair, Jessica cried out to God for help. Within a short time of praying (the way you are shown in the movie), Jessica's daughter rang to say that she had a change of heart and life and asked if she could come home! You too can enjoy the excitement of God answering your prayers! One of the most important requirements to have your prayers answered is to know, without doubt, that you are loved and accepted by God and that he wants to answer your prayers. The remaining movie sessions will not only help you pray, but show you how much God loves you.

    Prayer is talking with God: The Bible says in the book of Jeremiah, "Call to me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know." (Jeremiah 33:3) Excitement of answered prayer! I used to say when our youngest was little that God should assign an extra angel to him as he was always climbing and falling, as little boys do! When Peter was four he came inside screaming and dripping blood. He had fallen and split his tongue right down the middle. The doctor was reluctant to stick the tongue together but became concerned when the tongue continued to bleed for 6 hours. "What we need is a miracle," the doctor said anxiously. I quickly replied, "I believe in miracles!" I rang my husband, Bill, who was out of town and after we prayed together the bleeding stopped and Peter fell asleep. Concerned, Bill caught the next plane available and flew home to be with his boy. When he arrived he went to look at Peter's tongue and to our amazement the tongue had come together. It was back to normal, with not a mark to be seen. We praised God for answering our prayer! You can enjoy the excitement of God answering your prayers too! I believe that one of the first requirements is to know, without doubt, that you are loved and accepted by God and that he wants to answer your prayers. The remaining movie sessions will not only help you pray, but show you how much God loves you.

    What is Christianity About? 'Living Free' Series: http://www.ydyc.org/watch/living-free/ Session 1 Part 2: http://www.ydyc.org/media/video/living-free-series/session-one/what-is-christianity-about/ Who or What is a Christian? - A Christian is a person who adheres to Christianity. - Christianity is God reaching down to mankind. Christianity teaches that Jesus, the Son of God, died for our sins, was buried, resurrected, and thereby offers salvation to all who will receive him by faith. In the Bible we read, "We aren't saved from sin's grasp by knowing the commandments of God, because we can't and don't keep them, but God put into effect a different plan to save us. He sent his own Son in a human body like ours - except that ours are sinful - and destroyed sin's control over us by giving himself as a sacrifice for our sins." (Romans 8:3) Christianity is a way of life based upon God's love and acceptance and one's love for him. I love it when my loving Heavenly Father knows what I need before I even ask. It was a Friday and my husband and I had prayed that if God wanted us to attend a conference in another city, we would need him to miraculously supply the money by Monday. One hour after I prayed, the phone rang and I mentioned my prayer request to my daughter. She said, "I'm sorry Mum that I didn't tell you before, but someone gave me money yesterday, saying that God had told them that you would need money for travel." It was the exact amount that we needed. Our aim in the ten sessions of 'Living Free' is to help you experience real freedom - a freedom that comes from embracing God's acceptance and love.

'Living Free' Series: http://www.ydyc.org/watch/living-free/ Session 1 Part 1: http://www.ydyc.org/media/video/living-free-series/session-one/how-do-i-find-god/ Is the cry of your heart, "Where are you God?" Or "God help me!" Mankind has formed many different religious systems in an attempt to find peace with God. Religions have a code of practice, rules and regulations in an attempt to find a supreme being that would meet their deepest need. So what do I have to do to find God? Devote myself to religious formalities or try to become a better person so that God will accept me? Here are some facts from the Bible that you need to know... There is only one true God: The Bible says, "The Lord created the heavens. He is the God who formed the earth and made it. He did not want it to be empty, but he wanted life on the earth. This is what the Lord says: "I am the Lord. There is no other God." (Isaiah 45:18) The only way to God is through Jesus: The Bible teaches us that the salvation that mankind seeks is only found through faith in Jesus Christ. We read in the Bible that Jesus, the Son of God, declared, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. The only way to the Father is through me." (John 14:6) A searching heart will find God: This is God's promise to you: "You will search for me. And when you search for me with all your heart, you will find me." (Jeremiah 29:13) God wants to be found "God is being patient with you. He does not want anyone to be lost, but he wants all people to change their hearts and lives." (2 Peter 3:9) This includes you!
