Prayer and the Promotion of the Gospel

Sermon Series: Promote

January 27, 2019

Bible Text: Matthew 9:35-38 |

Series:

In the New Testament, which activity is mentioned in connection with the promotion of the gospel more than any other activity? Speaking? Preaching? Sending missionaries? The answer is, none of the above. The activity most frequently associated with the promotion of the gospel is prayer. The writers of the New Testament are clear that if we want to be gospel promoting people then we need to be praying people. God, in his great providence, delights to work through our prayers to spread his gospel and bring people into a loving relationship with him. Listen in to this sermon as we explore the role of prayer in the promotion of the gospel.

Knowing God

Ephesians - sermon series

May 20, 2018

Bible Text: Ephesians 1:15-23 |

Series:

What do you pray for when you pray? What are you chief priorities in prayer?

The things we pray about say a lot about the depth of our spiritual maturity. RoRobert Murray McCheyne once said: "What a man is on his knees before God, that he is, and nothing more."

In this passage we see one of Paul's most famous prayer, and we get to see his main priority - that we would know God better.

In this sermon we ask two questions: why pray to know God better, and what particularly about God should we be knowing better?

This is the second sermon in our Ephesians sermon. Unfortunately there is no recording of the sermon for Ephesians 1:1-14.

The Lord’s Prayer

September 11, 2016

Bible Text: Luke 11:1-13 |

Series:

This message is the first in a two-part series focusing on the practice of prayer in the life of the Christian. This week we take a look at Jesus' response to his disciples' request to teach them to pray in what is commonly referred to as 'The Lord's Prayer'. We take special notice of the shape or pattern of prayer that Jesus prescribes, and the impact that makes on the way we approach and practice prayer in our lives.
