As we continue with our Week of Prayer, I thought I would commend John Piper’s Sunday message, which was also on prayer and is now online.
Today’s sermon, which was overview from Colossians on Prayer, is now online. This sermon helped to serve our church by kicking off the Week of Prayer. We were encouraged to pray:
– for growth
– for the Gospel’s progress
and – with discipline
I was encouraged by the example of Epaphras in Colossians 4:12, who of whom it was said his prayers were striving for the growth of others. I hope you practice prayer this week and you are encouraged to depend on God for all things in 2010.
As our church is pursuing a Week of Prayer together, I thought I would commend an excellent sermon by John Piper. He preached this a couple of weeks ago to kick off the Week of Prayer at Bethlehem. I was especially moved in being reminded that prayer is a wartime activity, not just praying for the stuff of earth. Here it is:
