  • Unifying Prayer Listen

    Aaron Yoder - February 26, 2017

    We conclude this series on an overview of prayer from Jesus and the New Testament by looking at the final sections of Jesus' 'High Priestly Prayer.'  Today, we specifically look at Jesus' prayer of unity among His disciples.
  • Glorifying His Name Listen

    Aaron Yoder - February 19, 2017

    Ultimately, why should Christians pray?  We dig into this critic topic by studying the first portion of Jesus' "High Priestly Prayer" from John 17.
  • Without Ceasing Listen

    Aaron Yoder - February 12, 2017

    Jesus invites his disciples to 'always pray' but how realistic is that?  As this series continues, we take some time to better understand how to live a life of prayerfulness - and how God can use that for His glory.
  • Diversions From Prayer Listen

    Aaron Yoder - February 05, 2017

    How does Satan seek to undermine the prayer life of a Christian? We look at some of the enemy's strategies along with Jesus' teaching on faith and prayer from Mark 11.
  • When You Pray Listen

    Aaron Yoder - January 29, 2017

    When we devote time to prayer, about what should we pray?  We look at the four 'directions' of the Lord's Prayer which Jesus recommended to his disciples.
  • Seeking His Face Listen

    Aaron Yoder - January 22, 2017

    How closely ought praise and worship be connected to our habits of prayer?  We consider this question by first listening to Mennonites in Ukraine, Indonesia and Kenya and their habits of prayer.  Then we return to highlight Jesus' emphasis on praise at the beginning of the Lord's Prayer.
  • Authority and Faith in Prayer Listen

    Aaron Yoder - January 08, 2017

    Why should Christians prayer?  Jesus commands us to pray and we know that it's helps us draw near to God, and yet those two reasons don't compel many Christians to spend time on their knees.  Therefore, we dig into the 'will of God' at the beginning of this series and look at how our faith and dependency upon the Lord affects how and when He works among His people.
