Join us September 25 through December as we journey through our new series: Prayer

Prayer is how we grow into deeper intimacy with God, yet to so many people, it feels out of their reach. Our goal through the next 13 weeks is to make prayer more tangible and relatable. We want you to begin to pray (if you never have), pray more authentically, and spend time with God in ways that He becomes the object of your worship. In every religion in the world, prayer is central to what communion with God is supposed to look like…it is the heart of what we believe. As with any relationship, communication is central. By knowing who Jesus is and experiencing His grace, we will encounter Him and grow in faith and maturity. Hopefully in a few weeks you will understand our definition of prayer, which is adapted from Tim Keller’s book on prayer: “Prayer is a continuing conversation that God has started through His Word and provided by His grace, which eventually becomes a full encounter with Him.”

Sermon Notes:

In order for us to have a deep relationship with God, we must know and trust who He is in His person. Too often, we make up who we want God to be and then worship that image as God. Rather than living in the truth that we are made in His image, we try to remake God in our image and that never goes well. One of our biggest obstacles to prayer is that often we are praying for what we want rather than what God wants for us.
