Last week Pastor John talked about the privilege of praying for one another. This week, Pastor Dan shifts our focus to contemplate the beauty and blessing of praying with one another.
Pastor John continues our prayer series, looking at 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13 and helping us consider the act of praying for others as an expression of love and thankfulness.
Join us as we look at Paul’s letter to the Philippians (Ch. 4, verses 4-7) and consider his instruction about prayer as a way that God can transform our hearts and minds when it comes to our worries.
Luke 11:1-13. When the disciples were with Jesus they asked him many things. One of their most important questions was about prayer. On one occasion they simply said, “Lord, teach us to pray.” That is when Jesus gave them what we now call The Lord’s Prayer.
This sermon is the beginning of a five-week series on prayer. This week our focus will be on the purpose of prayer. We will consider some basic questions: What is prayer? Why pray? What happens when we pray?
