What's New At Grace
We serve a great God! He is loving, caring, and always good. We have the great privilege to be able to come into His presence and make our requests known to the King.
Let us then pray like it matters!
In our current series we have asked the question, “Why Pray?” Jesus Christ is salvation for the lost and life for a believer. God is the creator of all things and the initiator of life itself. He sustains us and satisfies us. Bread alone is not what we live by, but by every Word that comes out of the mouth of God. We can not forget that the Almighty God hears our prayers of petition for the lives of the lost. Salvation is possible for anyone through the blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Let us then pray for salvation of our family, friends, neighbors, government, and even our enemies.
We then asked the question, “How Do We Pray?” There are no special words to say, no higher education to complete, and no enlightened eloquence required to pray to God. He hears the prayers of the simple as a Father who hears His children. The Holy Spirit interprets even the groans of our hearts when we do not know what to say. We should pray without ceasing as we live life, but we cannot neglect praying to God in solitude. Let us pray to Him daily in quiet with humility, adoration, confession, resolve for restitution, thanksgiving, forgiveness, unity, petition for others, and faith and submission for His will to be done.
This last Sunday Pastor Paul walked us through the powerful prayer at the cross. Christ can save even the most evil and wicked this world has to offer. There is no person out of the reach of Christ. The grace of God is greater than our transgressions. Let us then pray for the salvation of the wicked as we do not know if we will be able to witness a miraculous change in their lives.
