“Prayer ~ Drawing Closer to God”
At our Elders Retreat in September of 2016, one of our three areas of concentration was on prayer; how can we, as a church, deepen our prayer life? In the new year our sub-group continued to work on this area. This has lead us to our new preaching series entitled “Prayer ~ Drawing Closer to God.” Our desire is that God will use this series to help do just that, draw closer to Him as we deepen our prayer life.
In this series we will look at: “The Lord’s Instruction on Prayer,” “The Lord’s Prayer,” “The Prayers of Christmas,” “The Apostles’ Prayers and Instructions,” “Old Testament Prayers,” and “Prayer ~ It’s All About Our Relationship with God” as seen in Jonah and Habakkuk.
Throughout this series we will see what is taking place at The Chapel in terms of prayer, from small groups to our Sunday Morning Prayer Team. We will be sharing ways that we can deepen our walk with God through prayer, even “eavesdrop” on various venues of prayer. Occasionally, we will be looking for your feedback through the E-press as well.
