Prone To Wander

Listen to "Prone To Wander" by Greg Siders, Sunday, 08-12-18

Prone to wander, Lord I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love.

I doubt that the hymn writer Robert Robinson was thinking of prayer when he penned those words, but every time I hear them, that's what I think about. I'm regularly frustrated by my proneness to wander when I am trying to talk to God. 

Can you relate? If so, I think you'll appreciate this Sunday's message at White Pine. We're going to learn together how even those of us who are easily distracted can keep our prayers on track.

Jesus On Prayer

Listen to "Jesus On Prayer" by Greg Siders, Sunday, 08-05-18

Watching all the wacky ways that people pray is enough to make you never want to do it. But there is a way to recover the essence of prayer from all the rigmarole.

Listen to Jesus.

His teaching on prayer is so refreshingly simple that you can hardly hear it without experiencing a fresh desire to talk to your Father. Join us this Sunday as we learn from Jesus how much better prayer can be than it so often is.

The God To Whom We Pray

Listen to "The God To Whom We Pray" by Greg Siders, Sunday, 7-29-18

We know we're supposed to pray. We know prayer is supposed to work. Yet we suffer from prayerlessness. Why?

Might it be because of misconceptions about God? A.W. Tozer said, "What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us."  

So this Sunday at White Pine, we will strive to see God more accurately so that we will pray more adequately.
