Prayer and the Great Commission

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:19-20)

“Continue steadfastly in prayer … pray … for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ …” (Colossians 4:2-3)

What is the role of prayer in the advance of the gospel? How does God intent His people to “pray forward” the gospel to those who have yet to hear?

Our congregation recently considered these questions and would like you to join us by listening here: Prayer and the Great Commission

Prayer and the Holy Spirit

“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” (Romans 8:26-27)

Recently our congregation considered the ministry of the Holy Spirit as it relates to our praying. You can join us by listening here: prayer and the Holy Spirit

Prayer & the Promises of God

Jesus makes some stunning promises about prayer. How are we to reconcile these to what may feel like a less-than-spectacular prayer life?

Turn to Matthew 7:7-11 and then listen in here: Prayer and the Promises of God

Prayer and Discipline

“… train yourself for godliness … to this end we toil and strive, because we have our hope set on the living God … Command and teach these things.” (1 Timothy 4:7b, 10a, 11)

What is the proper relationship between the grace of prayer and the discipline of the believer?

Recently I explored this with our church family. I invite you to join us in pursuing these things. Give a listen: prayer and discipline
