Sermons on “Prayer”
We believe that prayer is essential to following after God. Like Jesus, we need frequent times when we are seeking God for a reaffirmation of our identity as God’s people and a reminder of our mission. Like Scripture, prayer is a major discipline for our corporate body (Matthew 6:9–13; Mark 1:35; Acts 4:23–31).
Am I seeking God for direction in the life of our church?
Prayer is every believer’s responsibility and awesome privilege. More than ever in Canada’s short history, does our nation need a praying Church. Not necessarily just more of what we are already doing, but there’s more to prayer than we have pursued. Church needs to step into the “more”… There is a promise that continues to be relevant today though it was given at the dedication of Solomon’s temple: “if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).View Sermon
The way we pray reflects our theology; it shows most clearly what we think and believe about God. When we pray is God our genie in the bottle obligated to fulfill our wishes, or does our prayer life reflect the relationship found between the father and the son? No wonder the disciples said to Jesus, “Lord, teach us to pray!”View Sermon
Many of us have a vague sense that praying is something we should be doing as Christians but most of us struggle with the task of prayer. In part, that is because we don’t understand what prayer is or why we should go about doing it. This sermon tries to see that at the heart of what prayer is, is an intimate connection to the living God himself.View Sermon
