Prayer is the soul’s admission of insufficiency. It is the language of dependence. It is the heart’s cry for help. It reveals: What we think of God. What we think of ourselves. What we think of what God thinks of us. Who we are looking to. Who and what we are living for.
Prayer is the language of God.
“Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.” — Romans 8:26
This week as you READ and RESPOND to the Word, PRAY that the Spirit would reveal how these readings are related to what we kneed to know about how prayer helps us relate to God :
Sunday’s Teaching —1 Thessalonians 5.12–28
Genesis 2.1-8, 18-25
Genesis 3.8–11, 20–24
Sunday’s Teaching — 2 Chronicles 7.1–22
Be sure you are getting the short In the Word Today devotional written for each day's reading. The email gets sent out early each morning. The sign up form is on the bottom of the home page of our website.
You get a link that that day's reading and a little insight the Holy Spirit gave to me on how this reading adds to our conversation about the Sunday teaching.
This is all you need to participate in our D-Groups!
If you have not gotten a copy of the book 'The Secret to Prayer' by Dr. Kyle DiRoberts, you can get one at the church building or on Amazon. This will really help flavor this time we will spend focused on prayer.
Keep looking UP! — Luke 21.28
