Yesterday at Shelbyville First Baptist Church I kicked off a new series I’m calling Discover. Each week we will take an in-depth look at one of the key elements of the Christian life. The first sermon in the series I called Discover Prayer.
In the first sermon, I answered the following four key questions concerning prayer:
- What is prayer?
- Who can pray?
- How do we pray?
- What can prayer do?
The text was taken from the Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5-7. The main memory verse from the sermon was Matthew 6:6.
“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:6 (NIV)
