Praying the Lord’s Prayer as a Church

Jesus taught us to pray in what we call the Lord’s Prayer.  Have you ever thought about how you can use this prayer as a template to pray for our church? Here’s how Jesus taught His disciples to pray: 9 Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. 10 Your kingdom come, your will be done,     on earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread, 12 and forgive us our debts,     as we also…

List of Things to Pray

For a while I have been keeping a prayer journal where I write down things to pray for.  Many of these items include people that are sick or people that need encouragement or upcoming events.  Most of these have an “ending”, or I…

How to Have An Effective Gospel Group

Groups are important.  Whether you call them Gospel Groups, small groups, community groups, discipleship groups, Sunday School classes, Bible study groups, etc., the committed gathering of a smaller group of believers is essential to discipleship. Hebrews 10:19-25 speaks to the importance of Christians stimulating one another to live for Christ.  While the passage begins by explaining how Jesus’ sacrifice changes us, the writer then commands us not to further change ourselves but change one another. In our Gospel Groups, we…
