Sermon: Luke 11:2 - How to Pray, Part 2. When we come into the Lord's presence for prayer, what's the first thing on our minds? Is it a trial we are enduring? Maybe it's a particular temptation pressing hard upon us. Or perhaps we are concerned about health or our daily provisions. Maybe we are aware of our sinfulness and our need for forgiveness. Jesus, however, instructs us how to pray, and the focus of our prayers should never begin with ourselves. So, how should our prayers begin? Where should our focus be when we pray? That's the subject of this week's sermon. We continue our study of the Lord's Prayer with this sermon entitled "How to Pray, Part 2."
Sermon: Luke 11:2 - How to Pray, Part 1. When we come to the Lord in prayer, what really matters? Is it the time? The place? The length of time we spend in prayer? Having our eyes open or closed? Should we kneel, stand, sit, or lie prostrate on the floor? What about content? What should we say when we come to the Lord in prayer? In this week's sermon, we look at all of these questions from Luke 11:2. Jesus taught His disciples how to pray, and what He emphasized first might surprise you.

Sermon: Luke 11:1 - Lord, Teach Us to Pray. Saying a prayer is a simple thing to do, so simple even a child can do it. But what about sustaining a vibrant life of prayer? For most Christians, prayer is exceedingly difficult, especially when it comes to cultivating a deep, enjoyable prayer life that is consistent over the long term. These struggles are not unique to us. The disciples themselves understood the difficulty of prayer, and they asked the Lord for help. In this sermon on Luke 11:1, we see why the disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. This sermon also helps us see our need for the Lord to teach us what it means to pray in the Spirit according to the truth.
