SERMON SERIES WHEN YOU PRAY
The Lord’s Prayer
When the disciples of Jesus asked him to teach them how to pray, his response was to teach them a prayer. The pattern for prayer that Jesus taught covers everything that stresses or troubles us. Lent is a time to go deeper spiritually. This sermon series on the Lord’s Prayer will teach us how to live more deeply in the Kingdom of God, on earth, even as it is in heaven.

“Drawing on insights from history, archaeology, geography, and the Bible, Hamilton takes us to the Holy Land and provides a deeper understanding of the most amazing day in history.

Book: “A Woman of Prayer” by Betty Henderson. In her uplifting and practical Bible study, Betty Henderson invites you to live life as A Woman of Prayer. Believers acknowledge that prayer is an integral part of Christian living, but how many of us know what prayer entails? From the basic “Prayer Principles” to the realities of “Prayer Practiced,” Henderson takes Christian women step-by-step through Scripture, demystifying our prayer life with a challenge to simply converse with the God Who hears. Successive Bible study and practical, spiritual application draw out valuable lessons from God’s Word for women today.
