SPdLU: Prayer to Change Our Lives and the Lives of Others

Wednesdays in May (May 9, 16, 23 & 30); In partnership with Orchard Institute and led by Dan Hayes, executive director of Orchard Ministries

6 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall

Free event; Registration not required

Studying Jesus’ prayers and what He taught about prayer has helped thousands of people deepen both their personal experience of God in their prayers AND to find ways their prayers individually and as a group together can impact their church, community and world in larger and even more measurable ways.

Among the subjects included in this study will be the role of Jesus’ prayer life in His larger ministry, the promises of His prayer life, the results of His prayer life, some problems we face in prayer, His teachings on persistence in prayer, ideas on what it means to pray “in His Name”, what His way of prayer teaches us about hindrances to prayer, and specific personal and group application we can make right now to see more lives changed positively and for Christ through prayer.

Enough means “as much or as many as required.” It is a word we use when we are tired, full, or when the job is complete. Join us as we explore the big idea that God is enough for whatever comes our way. We’ll think about how God made a way so that in Christ, we are enough. This summer your students will also discuss how God’s plan is that there is enough for everyone; and how as followers of Christ we can use our voices to say, “Enough already!” when we see injustice and inequity in this world.
