Praying Versus God’s Ultimate Plan: Why Pray?Sermon Series: In Jesus' NameIntroduction: Everybody loves to hear a well-worded story. A story has the power to ignite the imagination and to reveal what is hidden. Jesus used simple but profound stories called parables to reveal and to conceal God’s will and God’s ways. Matthew 13:10-13 shows us the two-fold purpose of Jesus’ parables. Then the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken
Praying When You Don’t Know What to PraySermon Series: In Jesus' NameIntroduction: One of the embarrassing truths about us is how much we struggle to maintain a good prayer life.

Sometimes we’re challenged; sometimes we’re convicted that we need to change—but through it all----God’s AMAZING LOVE is always there to encourage us.

Some Christians believe that miracles were confined to biblical times while others believe they are for today.

Today’s message will help to unravel this important issue.
