Advice on prayer from John Newton

Some great advice contained in Newton's hymn..

        Come, my soul, thy suit prepare, 
        Jesus loves to answer prayer; 
        He Himself has bid thee pray, 
        Therefore will not say thee nay.          

Thou art coming to a King,         
Large petitions with thee bring;        
 For His grace and pow'r are such        
None can ever ask too much. 

I tried to use these ideas in a sermon at my church recently www.graceinthecommunity.com, take a listen...http://www.graceinthecommunity.com/Media/AllMedia.aspx 
It's called "Bold prayer".
