MP3 Notes



God uses the prayers of his people, made confident in Christ, as a means to see their brother or sister overcome sin. This message was given by Pastor Steve DeWitt as part of the 1 John teaching series.


14 And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him. 16 If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask, and God will give him life--to those who commit sins that do not lead to death. There is sin that leads to death; I do not say that one should pray for that. 17 All wrongdoing is sin, but there is sin that does not lead to death. 1 John 5:14 — 1 John 5:17 ESV
