Our focus, as a church, during January will be on prayer. Along with weekly teaching on prayer, during Sunday worship, our Wednesday evening adult study will focus on prayer.
There are many misconceptions about prayer. Prayer is not a “magic wand” or a “first aide kit”; it’s not something we turn to only when we’re desperate. Neither is prayer some sort of “tug-of-war” with God, as we try to convince him to do something “nice” for us. Further, and most importantly, prayer is not simply a “religious duty,” something we do out of a sense of guilt or obligation.
Over the next few weeks we will consider why we pray, how we pray specifically and hear God’s response, how we pray for others, and what we do when God is silent, when he doesn’t answer our prayers.
