The Rhythm of Prayer

The Rhythm of Prayer

In this series, we spend 4 weeks in the Lord’s Model Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13. Learning to pray like Jesus and following his rhythm, we can experience great intimacy with God and transformation of ourselves and the world around us.

The Outward Movement

September 20, 2015

Justin Norden concluded our sermon series on the Lord’s Prayer with the Outward Movement, the part of the Lord’s Prayer where we ask God to protect us and use us as he leads us. “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For yours is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever and ever. Amen.”

The Inward Movement

September 13, 2015

As we continue our sermon series on prayer, Pastor Stephen teaches on the Inward Movement in the Lord’s Prayer: “Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors.” We can trust God to meet not just our physical needs, but also the needs of our souls.

The Downward Movement

September 6, 2015

Pastor Jonathan Minter continues our Rhythm of Prayer series as we learn about the 2nd movement in the Lord’s Prayer: The Downward Movement. Learn how to pray, “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

The Upward Movement

August 30, 2015

When you think of prayer, what’s the first thought that comes to mind for you? For some the word is “Boring,” as they remember long-winded lists of prayer requests for Aunt Sally’s brother-in-law’s, neighbor’s dog. For others, the word is “Fear,” because you’ve never prayed aloud and don’t know how to pray. For the type A personality, the word is “Impatience,” because this person sees prayer as a duty to perform and quickly complete, so that they can get to the real work. Yet, for some people, prayer is the most powerful, intimate and wonderful activity in which a believer can engage. Jesus taught His disciples to begin their prayers by first seeking God’s face before looking for His hand.
