Fall Sermon Series: How to Pray

 

This Fall in RUF Gatherings, we will be talking about How To Pray. We will be working through The Lord's Prayer (Mat. 6:9-13; Lk 11:1-4) and thinking together about how Jesus taught his disciples they should hear from and talk with their God and Father in Heaven. This is exciting for so many reasons: (1) It's exciting because it's just plain essential for all believers young and old (a) to memorize the Lord's Prayer in order to have it on command every day all day throughout one's life (b) to not only memorize but also have deep understanding about what the Lord's Prayer means for us both individually and collectively as a community who worship Christ, and (c) to know how to put all the various elements Jesus is teaching his disciples in the Lord's Prayer--how to put it all into practice in our lives on a daily, hourly, and minute-by-minute basis.

The Lord's Prayer is so historic and central to the belief of all Christians from all backgrounds, in all places, and throughout the church's past and present! You don't want to miss it! Please come!

“When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin'."
I'm whispering "I was lost,
Now I'm found and forgiven."

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble
and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak
And need His strength to carry on.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed
And need God to clean my mess.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible
But, God believes I am worth it.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches
So I call upon His name.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner
Who received God's good grace, somehow.”

Maya Angelou
