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:

It is interesting that Jesus' disciples never asked Him to teach them how to prophesy or preach, but they did ask Him to teach them how to pray. Most often, Jesus taught others how to pray by simply praying. He would pray where the disciples could see and hear Him, but He also went off to pray by Himself (sometimes at the most inconvenient times) and the disciples had to take care of themselves. That alone time was important for Jesus in how He modeled a life with God in front of the disciples.
