09 Jun How Can We Pray? – John 17:1-5 – June 9, 2019
We often treat prayer casually, as though it were something trivial. But how is it that we are even able to pray? How can sinful people have access to a holy God? On our own, we cannot. But we see in the prayer of Jesus that we are able to pray because God had a plan from eternity past to give us eternal life, and Jesus accomplished that plan by doing everything the Father sent him to do. Jesus has torn down the barrier between us and God, giving us access to him. This humbles us and frees us to see prayer not as a burden, but as a gift of grace, and to run to God in prayer with joy and gratitude. Speaker Taylor Combs.
Grace Community church exists to build spiritually healthy people for ministry in the world. One of the ways that we pursue this mission is by gathering each Sunday for corporate worship, prayer, and biblical teaching. The corporate nature of this gathering is both edifying to the believer and a witness of God’s grace to the world. Sermon speaker is Scott Patty unless otherwise noted.
