Jesus on Prayer

Watching all the wacky ways that people pray is enough to make you never want to do it. But there is a way to recover the essence of prayer from all the rigmarole.

Listen to Jesus.

His teaching on prayer is so refreshingly simple that you can hardly hear it without experiencing a fresh desire to talk to your Father. Join us as we learn from Jesus how much better prayer can be than it so often is.

The God To Whom We Pray

We know we’re supposed to pray. We know prayer is supposed to work. Yet we suffer from prayerlessness. Why?

Might it be because of misconceptions about God? A.W. Tozer said, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.”

So we will strive to see God more accurately so that we will pray more adequately.

Why Pray?

If prayer is not your strong suit, you may be tempted to wonder if it really matters whether or not you ever get better at it. But what are you missing if you settle for prayerlessness? More importantly, what is God missing? Here are four biblical answers to the question Why pray?

Improving Your Most Miserable Relationship

Downer of a title, I know. But let’s be honest: Some of our relationships are not what we’d like them to be. Maybe, for you, one in particular is especially disappointing, because it’s a relationship you highly value.

The Exceptional Father

So I had a choice: To tell you the topic of our Father’s Day message, or to promise free bacon to every man in attendance. Maybe it’s just me, but that seemed like a no-brainer.

I predict, though, that what the Spirit of God will say to you will linger longer than the aftertaste of bacon. One of the Bible’s most exceptional fathers will show us how to live the kind of life that will attract those we love to God, despite society’s opposing pull on them. It will give us a lot to, um, chew on.

Loving God In The Phone Age

Like it or not, we’re living in the Phone Age. And there is power in your mobile device that can work for you or against you as a follower of Jesus. Join us as we search the Scriptures for wisdom on how to love God and others in today’s technology-saturated world.

When Mother’s Day Hurts

Don’t worry, it’s not going to be a downer! We’re going to celebrate moms this Sunday just like we do every Mother’s Day–but we’re also going to address the fact that, for many people, Mother’s Day can bring pain to the surface. And we are going to worship the God who sees, soothes and redeems…
