Elder candidate, Caleb Stone, continues our Sermon on the Mount series speaking on the topic of prayer.
What is prayer really about?
Is it simply about asking for things that are beyond our capacity or is there something deeper, something trans-formative about our prayers?
Below you'll find the sermon audio and transcript.
"Good morning, guys, it's an honor to be here, with each number one of you. I love this church, and I'm humbled that I have the opportunity to open God's word to you with that said. I cannot do that in my own strength. So would you go with me in prayer once again, Father, we are humbled, we adore you, we are overwhelmed at your magnitude and at your holiness, and that you're hear with us. Would you open our eyes to see in our ears to hear the glory of Your word, the glory of Jesus Christ? I pray that our hearts would be enlightened by your word Father and that I would only say what your word says and be with me, be with us and let your word minister to our hearts in Jesus mighty name, man........................etc............................
"Let's pray Our God and Father we give you glory. You are majestic, you are holy, you remind you are lifted up high on your throne in Heaven, and we are amazed at you and your glory. So would you cultivate in us prayer? That is God, exalt-. ing and God, God praising to give you all the glory, all the praise that we would see that we would seek Your kingdom, in your will, first, in all things be added. And those things, not even be in the forefront of our mind because God is all... we need pre-over everyone here in Jesus' name, amen."
