Prayer is one of God’s greatest gifts to His people and one of the greatest privileges we have. In this series we sit at the feet of Jesus as he teaches us how to pray.
In this message, we first learn what prayer is not: it’s neither a performance or simply a procedure. Prayer is not about an outward display of being religious. Rather, it is a vital expression of our relationship with our Heavenly Father. It is also not a means of manipulating God into giving us what we want. It is actually a means of surrendering control to Him, the One who knows best. There are, however, great rewards in prayer that the Father promises to give us such as His presence & attention, a deeper sense of our true identity as His child, and the ability to see more clearly how he is leading, guiding, and providing for us.
