Sermon Notes

   This is the second message in our fall series Life-Changing Prayer that will parallel our small group study by Jim Cymbala.  There is a lot of misunderstanding about prayer by non-Christians and Christians alike. There is much confusion about how to pray and why prayer is important.     

   This series will clarify some things and give us a greater understanding as to why and how to pray. Some people see prayer as a last resort after everything else has failed. Others see it as a religious duty they simply endure rather than something that can give us meaning, purpose and life.   

   This morning we are going to look at some prayer basics; what prayer is not and then what it is or five purposes of prayer.
