Power of Prayer: A Fishy Prayer
This Morning we continue our series on the Power of Prayer by focusing on how not to pray. Jonah 2 records the prayer of Jonah in the belly of a whale. It reveals a broken prophet in more ways than one, but even despite himself (with his prejudices, self-righteousness, and selfishness), the Lord still takes the time to commission a fish to save him, to preserve him, and to spew him back on to dry ground. There’s much we can learn from his prayer, and I trust that the Lord will continue to use this series to help us grow in our prayer lives.Podcast: A Fishy Prayer
Power of Prayer: Lament's Unfiltered Prayers
We continue our series called ‘Power of Prayer’ by focusing on the power of Lament. I believe this is the very first sermon I have ever preached on the topic of lament. I lament this fact. Lament comes from typically dark circumstances, but is produced out from a heart of faith. Life is filled with brokenness, injustice, loneliness, and heartache. Sometimes the issues are seasonal. Sometimes the issues are chronic. Whatever the case may be, the invitation we have from the Bible is to share with God unfiltered expressions of faith.Podcast: Lament's Unfiltered Prayer
Power of Prayer: For Christ's Sake
I Kings 8:22-53Power of Prayer: For Christ's Sake
This Sunday we continue to emphasize how we are shaped by prayer through our sermon series called ‘The Power of Prayer’. We often times don’t dive into a lengthy Old Testament passage, but this week we focus on part of a prayer by King Solomon. He gives a lengthy prayer in one of the most important events in the Old Testament: the dedication of the Temple.
Power of Prayer: Shameless Audacity
Luke 11:1-13Power of Prayer: Shameless Audacity
We start a new short series called the Power of Prayer. We will be exploring prayer from a few different angles. The point of this series is to help us grow as a community of prayer, recognizing that any depth or growth we seek comes through prayerful engagement with God. Prayer is the activity that reminds us of our utter dependence on God, a posture we need each step of the way together at ResLife.
