As we continued our sermon series A Church on Mission this past Sunday, we looked at the role of prayer in our church ministries and daily lives. In Matthew 6, Jesus teaches us that prayer isn’t about manipulating God to do what we want, but rather prayer is a time to submit our wants and desires to God in worship. As we pursue a daily prayer life, we are pursuing contentment in what God provides for us. Through prayer, we receive forgiveness and remind ourselves to be ambassadors for God’s forgiveness to the people around us. Prayer is also a powerful tool in pursuing holiness and becoming more like Jesus.
