January Sermon Series: When You Pray

January Sermon Series: When You Pray


"Pray without ceasing." (1 Thess. 5:17)

Few Christians object to the priority of prayer.  Yet many feel like they don't know how to pray or battle a constant low-grade guilt over not praying enough.  Prayer becomes a duty instead of a delight.

Here's my conviction from God's Word.  God didn't create prayer to make us feel guilty.  He created prayer because he made us for a relationship of divine dependence.  Jesus' words to his disciples in John 15:5 ring true. "Apart from me you can do nothing."

We're going to spend the month of January focusing on prayer as a church, culminating in a church-wide day of prayer on Saturday, Jan. 26.  Over the next few weeks we'll be posting a variety of resources to strengthen your practice of prayer.  Here's a quick overview of the upcoming sermons.
