So, how’s your prayer life? Bro. Oren’s messages all month have reminded us how important prayer is. This week’s scripture was from John 14: 1-14. Jesus’ words still speak to us today. Do not let your hearts be troubled but trust in God and trust in Jesus. The way to the Father is through his son Jesus. Jesus set the path for us to follow and one day He will come for us so we need to have a relationship with Him. One of those ways is to pray in his name and Jesus tells us whatever we ask in His name and will, it will be done. But remember as Bro. Oren pointed out that whoever prays in God’s name we must always do good works in God’s name. We can’t ask Him to answer prayer when we are not walking a godly life and following His will.
As you are in prayer this week remember all those who have shared needs in their lives. Some are ill and in the hospital or recovering from surgery or falls. We know Jesus knows each need. Remember Eldon Brooks, Betty Kennedy, Bill Whitaker, Kelsey Stover and Bill Bolding to mention a few. Pray for our country, our community and our church family.
