Lenten Sermon Series: Prayer, Power, Problems

During Lent, Seek God's joy, sharing and acting as a disciple of Jesus by having at least 10 minutes daily in prayer. We also invite all to join in studying the weekly scripture text for this sermon series.

March 2nd        Matthew 6:5-14
March 9th         Mark 9:14-29
March 16th       Men's day
March 23rd       Luke 22:39-46
March 30th       Philippians 4:6-7

Every problem will not be solved. Some will linger. Some will end in ways we dislike, even that we despise. Some will end with a pleasing resolution. How do we address these realities? What does God mean in these situations for followers of Jesus?
Problems, and even a lack of problems, call for a relationship, a connection with the Almighty. Centering ourselves in God is what we need. This begins in the discipline of prayer. Prayer places the disciple's desires, needs, thoughts and entire life at the seat of eternity. It accesses the wisdom of heaven for any and all needs by way of conversation with the Author and Giver of life, wisdom for life.

Divine wisdom is power for any situation. When the disciple of Jesus talks with God, when time is taken to hear from God, possibility results. Any and every situation can be confronted, can be endured or overcome because of the consultation with God called prayer.

Problems can thus find patience, solutions, answers, persistence, stamina, responses and results. The presence of The Lord problems addresses problems with the power of prayer.
Join us for this needed and empowering Sermon Series. It will reassure you in seeking prayer power for problems needing go love and justice, grace and mercy, charity and love. Come! Bring a friend! You will be glad you did!
