Join us this Sunday, March 5, 2017, as Rev. Dr. Robert W. Bohl brings us God’s word from Mark 11: 15-24.
In one sense, nothing in a Christian’s life seems more baffling and challenging than the act of praying. Those first disciples of Jesus were so moved by the way that Jesus prayed that one day they asked Him, “Lord teach us how to pray,” meaning, teach us how to pray like You pray.
Jesus prayed frequently and He prayed no matter where He was, such as in a synagogue, by a lake, on a mountain side, or in the home of someone in need of a prayer. Who among us has not found prayer, at times, little more than mere words with little hope of God really answering our prayers?
Kierkegaard, the Danish theologian, I believe was absolutely right when he said, “prayer does not change God, but changes the one who prays.”
If you have given up on praying, then I encourage you to take it up again. One way to begin is to avoid using words, just sit quietly alone and center your thoughts on God. Set a time on a daily basis to sit quietly and give your thoughts to God. God will listen, I promise you, God will listen.
TRAFFIC ADVISORY: The Las Olas Art Fair will be taking place on Sunday, March 5, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Please keep this in mind when heading to church on Sunday and expect delays.
