“Prayer is something far more profound than merely a tool to get something from God.
Prayer is about our relationship with God. It is beyond the words.
Prayer is the primary expression of our ‘love for’ and ‘trust in’ God.
In our prayers we present our needs to God and then live in expecting, trust-filled wonder and anticipation of the unexpected ways God will answer.”
-John Devries, author of our Lenten Devotional: Why Pray? 40 Days—from Words to Relationship
“Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition,
and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.”
True effective prayer and hope always go hand in hand, so during this Lenten Season, we are going to deepen our prayer life by digging into the relationship between prayer and hope. Sunday sermons will be connected to our daily devotional, Why Pray?, and Wednesday evening services will walk through The Lord’s Prayer.
Wednesday Evening Services begin at 6:30 p.m.
Feb. 17 (Ash Wednesday), Feb. 24, March 3, 10, 17 and 24
Copies of Why Pray? will be available for you to pick up in the Crossing or at the Welcome Center in the Great Room. (Books are no cost to you. Please limit one book per family.)
If you are not able to pick up a book on Sunday morning, please email our Administrative Assistant, Lynn Conlin, to schedule a time to stop by the church office during regular office hours or make other arrangements to get your book.
Interested in small group discussion about the Why Pray? book? Email Pastor McClean to get plugged in.
