Sermons on “Prayer”

Teach Us to Pray

Why does it often seem like a struggle to pray? When we bow our heads before the Lord, we find ourselves so easily distracted. Life gets so busy, we allow days, maybe weeks, to pass without drawing near to our Savior. At times, our words feel so empty or repetitive. We long for a deeper prayer life, but were do we start? In the Gospel of Luke, the disciples made a request that resonates with us: “Teach us to pray.” He gives us a model that can guide us as we approach our Father in prayer.

God’s Grace Is Sufficient

We have been exploring practical ways the grace of God changes us, when we come to discover His unmerited favor in our lives. In 1 Corinthians 12, we learn that the grace of God not only saves but sustains us through the challenges and difficulties of life. When we think we can’t go on, the Lord fill us with strength, as we trust in Him.

Don’t Be a Fool!

In the Bible, a fool is someone who lacks common sense. He is rash, and reckless, and irresponsible. His decisions get him into all kinds of trouble. He is often his own worst enemy. His problem is not so much with his mind, but in his heart. It is not an intellectual deficiency, but a spiritual issue. Every one of us is capable of acting foolishly, and making ill-advised decisions. That’s why we need to ask the Lord for wisdom.

The King Who Prayed

God is not deaf. He is listening intently to the prayers of his children, and He will always hear us when we call out Him. We can approach our Heavenly Father anytime, day or night. No matter where we are, He is always with us, eager for us to quiet our hearts and enter His presence. We can talk to Him about anything: our joys and sorrows, our failures and victories. And we can share with Him the concerns of our heart.
