In this passage of God’s Word, we see Jesus teaching His disciples how to pray. From this encounter we learn several lessons on prayer:

1. Realize that prayer changes us
Phil. 4:6-7, 1 Tim. 2:1-4, Matt. 26:41, John 15:5

2. You don’t have to impress God with your prayers
Matt. 6:7-13, Rom. 8:26, Ecc. 5:1-3

3. Acknowledge God for who He is
Ps. 115:3, 1 Pet. 5:7, Eph. 3:20

4. Prioritize God’s will
Ps. 37:4, Matt. 6:33, 1 John 5:14-15, Jam. 4:3

5. Ask for your needs
Jam. 1:13, Matt. 6:14-15, Ps. 37:4, Rom. 8:32

6. Seek God’s help for your depravity
Rom. 7:15-20, 1 Cor. 10:13, Matt. 26:41, 1 John 1:9, Mark 11:25

7. Pray with boldness, persistence, and confidence
Mark 11:24, 1 Thess. 5:16-18, Col. 4:2, Ps. 34:17, Rom. 8:28, Luke 18:1-8, Matt. 18:19-20, 21:22, Ps. 84:11, Heb. 4:16
Reflection Questions

1. On a scale from 1-10, rate your current prayer life. Why did you put that number down? What in your life has impacted your prayer life?

2. What would it practically look like for you to deepen your prayer life? What changes would you have to make to accomplish that?

3. How do you think it would change your life if you were better able to invest in your relationship with God through prayer?

In-Person Service Update

Please remember, no offering plates will be passed; instead, we ask you to give online or via the giving box near the entrance. Tables are set up in the back row for families with young children. Because of CDC updated its guidelines, we are no longer be asking people to wear a mask and social distance. However, if you would still like to do either, we completely respect that, and we are asking for everyone to respect that as well. No one will judge you for your decision, either way (see Romans 14).

Open Sorting Hour at the Foster Closet

Want to help out at the foster closet but can’t commit to helping regularly? That’s ok! Every Friday from 12:30-1:30 is an open sorting hour. If you’d like to help during the open sorting hour, please text Tammi Fisher at (216) 526-9974.


Thank you to everyone who came out to help at the workdays to care for our building. We truly appreciate your help! There are no upcoming scheduled workdays.

Building Changes

Starting this Sunday, August 15th, we will be having our worship services in the sanctuary, instead of the gym. This will mean that we will start using the center entrance as our main entrance once again. Also, the east wing of our building will be the new kids’ ministry area. Please ask a greater if you have questions about where things are in the building.
