Sermons about Prayer

Pillars of Prayer

Date: September 4, 2022 | Speaker:

Burdened by what He witnessed upon His arrival to Jerusalem, Jesus cleared the temple. His zeal for the Father consumed him. Jesus declared that His Father’s house was to be a place of prayer for all nations.

With the many and frequent distractions we face in a world that is raising its fists towards heaven, it is difficult to take time to shut everything down and focus on seeking, prayer and worship. We see that over 650 prayers are recorded in the Bible and 25 of those prayers were by Jesus.

We will look at 4 prayers in the Bible, represented in the Old and New Testament, that all hinge on the declaration, “Your Kingdom Come”. The only way to see God’s Kingdom principles and path forward in our lives, and in our church, is to stop the spin and confusion from the “World’s Kingdom” by being a pillar of prayer.

The Destructive Consequences of Our Sin

Date: August 7, 2022 | Speaker:

One little bug can’t harm a whole crop, but a swarm of locusts can devour and destroy an entire countryside in just minutes! We may not think that our “little” sins will ever harm anyone else, but the ripple effects might actually be felt for generations to come. The book of Joel describes a time when God’s people and their land suffered complete devastation as a result of their sin, and there was only one way to fix it. God called them to be genuinely brokenhearted, to repent of their sin, and to return to Him. If they did this, He promised to restore what they had lost and pour out His blessings upon them once again. If you are away from God right now and suffering the consequences of your sin, you don’t have to stay there! Return to Him today and receive the forgiveness and blessing He longs to give you.

Opening Our Eyes to the Spiritual Realm

Date: October 10, 2021 | Speaker:

It is possible to have 20/20 vision but still be completely blind! If we only perceive life through our physical senses, we’ll be dangerously unaware of the spiritual realm that exists all around us. This will make us vulnerable to the enemy and cause us to live in fear when we face overwhelming battles. Being aware of God’s presence all around us brings an entirely new perspective to everything. It reminds us that, as God’s children, we are never alone. We are never outnumbered. We are never at the mercy of the enemy. Are your spiritual eyes open?

God is Not Your Good Luck Charm

Date: January 24, 2021 | Speaker:

A spare tire. An insurance policy. A fire extinguisher. These are things we keep around somewhere in case of an emergency. Usually they’re out of sight gathering dust because we never think about them until something goes wrong. Sadly, some people treat God this way. They have no time for Him, but the minute trouble comes, they run and grab God like He’s some kind of good luck charm, begging Him to fix their problems. If this has been your view of God, there is a much better relationship he desires to have with you!

From Barrenness to Blessedness

Date: January 10, 2021 | Speaker:

There are times in life when God allows us to go through seasons of barrenness. We feel emptied of the joy and hope we once knew. God uses these trials to test us and grow our faith, and if we will allow the hardships to make us better instead of bitter, God will bring us through to a place of blessedness once again, where we are much stronger than we were before.

An Invitation into the Forbidden Zone

Date: April 26, 2020 | Speaker:

There was a time when no one could even imagine the idea of entering into the presence of God. His holiness and power caused people to tremble in fear. But when Christ died on the cross as the final sacrifice for our sin, the way into God’s presence was opened up for anyone to approach Him through prayer. Are we making the most of this incredible invitation to come near to God?

Upheld by the Providence of God

Date: October 20, 2019 | Speaker:

Are there situations in your life right now that have brought you so much pain or fear or discouragement that you are beginning to doubt God’s love and faithfulness? Do your prayers sometimes feel like they are falling on deaf ears? No matter how long you may have to wait for an answer, you can be absolutely certain of this: God’s providence is at work behind the scenes, orchestrating all things for His ultimate glory, and you can trust Him through it all.

A Double-Minded Man

Date: July 28, 2019 | Speaker:

Have you ever wondered what this expression really means? Some Bible translations give a hint of the meaning behind “double-minded”, but they can still leave a lot to the reader to figure out. Listen and be encouraged as we explore the origins of this expression, and what the author was really saying when he used it in his letter.

Communing with God

Date: November 25, 2018 | Speaker:

Often we read how we are to behave and what we are to do as followers of Christ. How do we find the power and inspiration to do it and continue when it gets difficult? The key is keeping in constant contact with the Father. It’s by communing (praying) and reading His Word.

Waiting on the Lord: A Mother’s Story

Date: May 13, 2018 | Speaker:

Hannah was barren for many years until God heard her cry out to Him. He answered her prayers, and Hannah gave birth to one of the greatest prophets Israel ever had. Like Hannah, we should pray without ceasing with confidence that He will hear our prayers.

What Happens When the Church Prays?

Date: March 18, 2018 | Speaker:

Prayer… Christians talk about it, preach about it and write books about it, but how much time do we actually spend praying? We have so many resources at our disposal that prayer has become a last resort. The early church prayed like their lives depended on it, and as a result, God moved in powerful ways! The church today has lots of activity, but very little power, and we will never have that power until we get back on our knees.

Are You Winning the Spiritual Battle?

Date: March 11, 2018 | Speaker:

Whether we ever think about it or not, there is a fierce spiritual battle being waged against us, and if we do not fight this war with the tools God has given us, we will give in to temptation and become victims of Satan’s attacks. Our enemy is powerful, and we cannot possibly stand against him in our own strength. But although he is strong, our heavenly Father is stronger, and we must look to Him for protection and victory. So, are you winning or losing this battle?
