Deepening our prayer life
On Sunday, Oct. 18, 2020 we will begin a five-week sermon series on prayer.
The goal of this series to for each of us to find ways to deepen our prayer life. In the midst of the chaos that is this season of life, finding ways to connect with the Spirit of God will help us find peace and joy.
Over the course of the series we will explore questions such as:
- What is prayer?
- What happens when we pray?
- What should our prayer life look like?
- When and how did Jesus pray?
- What does it mean to “pray the scriptures?”
Encountering the Spirit through times of prayer and meditation is one of the greatest gifts God provides each one of us. As we learn to listen for the depth of God calling out to the depth of our soul we learn we are deeply and profoundly loved by God. Join us for this five-week series that speaks of the power of prayer.
Title: Deep calls to Deep
Encountering the God through times of prayer and meditation is one of the greatest gifts the Spirit provides each one of us.
As we learn to listen for the depth of God calling out to the depth of our soul, we learn we are deeply and profoundly loved by God.
Title: Wasting Time with God
While we often talk about the importance of prayer many of us struggle to find time to be still and encounter God.
It is easier for us to see value in doing and accomplishing.
In today’s message we will talk about the importance of find a way to pray that fits the way God wired us to live and move through this world.
Title: Praying the Prayers of Paul
The apostle Paul’s writings contain some of the most powerful prayers in all of scripture.
Praying the prayers of Paul can be one way to deepen our prayer life.
During this service we will experience what it means for us to pray the scriptures.
Title: Jesus & His time with Abba
The gospels are filled with examples of moments when Jesus took time to spend with Abba.
We will look at six specific situations where Jesus made time with Abba a priority and what we can learn from them.
Title: Making it Personal
The Lord’s Prayer is familiar to many of us. We recite the prayer Jesus taught his disciples as part of community services and in our personal worship experiences. Adapting some of the language in the prayer can transform the way our spirit encounters Abba in our times of prayer.
