Warfare Prayer

Listen to "Warfare Prayer" by Greg Siders, Sunday, 08-26-18

Imagine fighting a war without any weapons.

I know that seems like an abstract exercise, but what if you're in a war right now? What if that which is most frustrating and most painful in your life is not merely due to the fact that life is hard, but that life is war?  

It is. And if we want to be armed and dangerous in the heat of battle, we must learn how to pray warfare prayers. We'll do that this Sunday in the conclusion of The Open Door.

When God Says No

Listen to "When God Says No" by Greg Siders, Sunday, 08-19-18

I love the imagery of an open door. It pictures what I believe about prayer so attractively.

The problem is, sometimes when we pray, it doesn't seem as if God's door is open. It's locked shut, and no matter how fervently we seek Him, we are met with silence.

What should we do when God says no?

I hope you will join us this Sunday as we learn how to become better rather than bitter when we experience unanswered prayer.

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.
