Chestnut Ridge Church
As Christians, one of the most powerful and underutilized resources we have is prayer. The New Testament writer James wrote, "You have not because you ask not." God invites us to talk with him about everything we face in life! He is a Father who loves to give good things to his children. But often, we are like the disciples of Jesus, who said to him, "Teach us to pray." We don't know how to pray or what we should pray about. This message series is titled, Ask. Let's explore together how amazing prayer is and how we can grow more effective in prayer.

Ask - Part 6 [September 24, 2017] Tim Haring

We don't always know how to pray
There is P.O.W.E.R. in prayer
It is not only that we do not pray very well; it is also the case that, while we often think we know what we need, we are not always good judges of that either.[1]
