Why We Pray

Quick. No time to think. Just talk. Give me at least three reasons why we pray. Some of us might answer; “I pray because God commands me”, “I pray because I need God’s help”, and “I pray because I want God to act in a situation or a person’s life.” Those are good, Biblical reasons for us to pray, but I think there is something far more nobler and a higher reason to pray. It is the reason we see modeled in the Greatest Person who ever prayed; the Lord Jesus.

QBC Evening Service Nov 6th will be a Time of Prayer for the Nation

Lord willing, a week from today, we will elect our next president. As obvious to all, this has been a volatile, painful, and certainly demoralizing campaign leaving Christians perplexed, disheartened, even disgusted. In the midst of what we have and are observing, it is important we remember our Lord reigns; that God is sovereign and controls the affairs of all nations to include the rise and fall of leaders. However, such comforting truth does not leave us passive, disengaged, and fatalistic as His people.

Our Riches in Christ

The Apostle Paul described God’s call on his life with these words, “Of this gospel I was made a minister according to the gift of God’s grace, which was given me by the working of his power. To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ” (Ephesians 3:7-8). It was a call to preach the “unsearchable riches of Christ.” And, we, as recipients of God’s grace, have been granted access by faith to these “unsearchable riches of Christ.”

The Two Languages In Prayer

Psalm 109:1-4 – Be not silent, O God of my praise! For wicked and deceitful mouths are opened against me, speaking against me with lying tongues. They encircle me with words of hate, and attack me without cause. In return for my love they accuse me, but I give myself to prayer. THEME OF THE DAY: THE TWO LANGUAGES IN PRAYER. In…

Loved With An Everlasting Love

Christianity is a message of love; pure love. It is not like human love. In today’s scripture, the phrase “God is love” appears twice. It isn’t that God loves, but that God is love. Every expression and act of Him comes from His loving nature.

Four Great Incentives To Pray

Probably the hardest commandment in the Bible to obey is “pray without ceasing”. I admit the command of Jesus to “love people” may be difficult at times especially toward those who hurt us. And the command to be a witness for Christ by verbally sharing His Gospel is often met with sweaty palms and fear. But the most difficult and demanding command of God is to pray always; without ceasing.
