    It’s Palm Sunday which marks the beginning of Jesus’ final week. Jesus began the day on the Mount of Olives where he could look out over the city of Jerusalem and think about all that was to come for him and for his disciples.  His prayer that week was that his followers would never forget the purpose God had for them.  We conclude our series on prayer by exploring this final prayer of Jesus which was not just for his disciples then but for the church today.

  • Opening the Door – Faith | Sermon from 3/22/2015

    What does it mean when we pray “in Jesus name”? What role does our faith play when it comes to God answering our prayers? When Jesus says we can ask for anything in his name and he will provide, why don’t we always get what we want? These are some of the difficult questions we explore as we continue to open the door to God through prayer.

  • Opening the Door – Boldness | Sermon from 3/15/2015

    What makes our prayers more than just wishful thinking? It’s the expectation that God not only hears us when we pray but wants to and is able to help us. Jesus tells a story which teaches us that God is able to help us and that God is motivated by His perfect love to help us which means we can be BOLD when we pray. Continue opening the door to a deeper life of prayer and a more personal relationship with God.

  • Opening the Door – Together | Sermon from 3/8/2015

    Drawing from the prayers of God’s people, Jesus gave his disciples a model for prayer that has endured for over 2000 years. The Lord’s Prayer isn’t the prayer Jesus prayed, but the prayer Jesus gave us so we would know how to pray. The prayer brings us together and identifies us as followers of Jesus and as we use it in our prayer life it connects us to one another and to God so that His kingdom and will can be done on earth as it is in heaven. Open the door and examine the Lord’s Prayer.

  • Opening the Door – Persist | Sermon from 3/1/2015

    We continue to open the door to a deeper life of prayer and faith by discovering the value of persistence. We don’t persist in prayer to wear God down until we get our way, we persist because we believe God is honorable and will act with justice and compassion. We also persist in prayer so that we will become honorable and act with justice and compassion.

    This is the start of a six week study as we learn from Jesus how to open the door to a richer life of prayer.
