Sermon Notes

   Next week we will begin a message series for Advent entitled The Star: A Journey to Christmas. This morning is the last message in our series Life Changing Prayer paralleling our small group study by Jim Cymbala. It’s on the importance of praying together with other Christians.

   Personal prayer between us and God is extremely important but there is also great value in praying with another person or two, in a small group, or corporately as a church body.

   We will see that in the Lord’s Prayer all of the pronouns are plural – Our Father, give us, forgive us, and lead us which suggests that Jesus had in mind praying together when he taught His followers what to include in their prayer times. We will also address what it means to “agree in prayer”, to pray in Jesus’ name, and some results of praying together.
