“Why Do We Pray?”

Last week, Pastor Brandon asked the question, “What is prayer?”  He answered with – Prayer is our personal response to the knowledge of God.

This coming Sunday, I’ll take us a question farther in our Living on a Prayer series by asking, “Why do we pray?”

As you prepare for Sunday’s worship gathering, prayerfully ponder what Pastor Timothy Keller writes about prayer:

Prayer is the only entry way into genuine self-knowledge.  It is also the main way we experience deep change – the reordering of our loves.  Prayer is how God gives us so many of the unimaginable things He has for us.  Indeed, prayer makes it safe for God to give us many of the things we most desire.  It is the way we know God, the way we finally treat God as God.  Prayer is simply the key to everything we need to do and be in life.  We must learn to pray.  We have to.”

I also hope you’ll take the time to pray Colossians 4:2, our theme Scripture for this series, before Sunday.

Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.

Seeking Him with you,

pastor jamie
