Many of us treasure that simple childhood prayer. It does have a few weaknesses though. For one thing, it’s centered almost completely on our ‘to-do’ list for God. “Here’s what I need done this night. Take care of this for me, won’t you?”
I guess that’s ok for kids. Life really is all about you when you’re seven!
But God has a lot more in store for us when we come to him in prayer. Something deeper & richer by far than simply passing him a list of needs and wants.
Thankfully, Matthew wrote down Jesus’ advice on prayer. It’s pretty powerful stuff. If your prayer life feels a bit tread-worn — or maybe you just don’t get around to praying as often as you’d like — this message is especially for you!
Come this week as we continue our series “Jesus Said It” with a look at Jesus’ advice for (and example of) a rich prayer life. Sunday at 10am.
See you in church! ~ Mac
