Prayer

Our Cry for the Kingdom

Does Prayer Change the Mind of God?

February 6, 2022 • Terry Dueck • Genesis 22:17, Galatians 3:14

Have you wondered how prayer works? If God is in control of everything and his plans are unchangeable and unstoppable, then does it really matter what we do? Do our prayers really change the mind of God? Join us on Sunday as we tackle the tension of God’s sovereignty (his absolute control) and the power and the authority given to the church through Jesus to change the world through prayer.

Bringing Heaven to Earth

January 30, 2022 • Luke Hildebrand • Matthew 6:9–13

The Lord’s Prayer is the center of Jesus’ teachings on prayer. Many of us can probably recite this prayer from memory, but how well do we really know it? This week we dig into the way Jesus taught His disciples to pray, and what it can teach us about the purpose of prayer in our lives.

Connecting with God

January 23, 2022 • Mike Franz • Matthew 22:37–38

Prayer is a place where we connect with and encounter a real God, even when it doesn’t always feel like it. God is waiting to hear and connect with us through our prayers. Watch this Sunday’s sermon to learn more.

Fasting

January 16, 2022 • Jessica Franz • Luke 4

This Sunday we continue with our Prayer Series where we’re taking a look at the spiritual practice of fasting. Fasting has strong roots in the Bible and Jesus himself spent time fasting during his time on earth, but what exactly is it? Why do we do it? What does it accomplish? This week we’ll answer those questions.

Don't Give Up

January 9, 2022 • Mike Franz • Luke 18:1–8

Prayer. It’s one of those things that we know makes an impact but is sometimes the last thing we feel like doing. At times, our prayer life revolves around giving thanks at meal times, mentioning a quick list of requests before bed, or praying during a crisis. God has more in store for our lives, the people in our lives, and our community… and it all comes down to one simple word - prayer. This Sunday we kick off the Prayer Series by looking at Jesus’ words in Luke 18 where He encourages us to be persistent in prayer and never give up.

Fervent

You have an enemy . . . and he's dead set on destroying all you hold dear and keeping you from experiencing abundant life in Christ. What''s more, his approach to disrupting your life and discrediting your faith isn't general or generic, not a one-size-fits-all. It''s specific. Personalized. Targeted. So this book is your chance to strike back. With prayer. With a weapon that really works. Each chapter will guide you in crafting prayer strategies that hit the enemy where it hurts, letting him know you're on to him and that you won't back down. Because with every new strategy you build, you're turning the fiercest battles of life into precise strikes against him and his handiwork, each one infused with the power of God's Spirit.

Fasting for Breakthrough and Deliverance

Matthew 17:21 tells us that there are some spirits in a person, region, or nation that cannot be overcome without fasting. Many believers struggle with certain limitations that they cannot seem to break through. A revelation of the power of fasting will result in victories that would not be ordinarily obtained. A life of consistent fasting will cause many victories to manifest. God''s will is for every believer to live a life of victory with nothing being impossible. There is freedom from the torment of the enemy!
