Teach Us To Pray


Most people pray...or at least they feel they should. But what is prayer, and why do we feel we should pray? There are misconceptions about prayer. How we pray tells us what we believe about God. What can we learn from the prayers we see in the Bible? If God is sovereign and knows everything, why bother praying at all? Join us over the next seven weeks as we answer these questions, and more, in our summer sermon series, Teach Us to Pray.
