Talks on Prayer

Humble Prayer || Teach Us To Pray || Luke 18:9-14

Imagine attending a prayer meeting and ragging on someone else at that meeting – during your prayers. That’s exactly what one of the esteemed Jewish leaders did in this passage. Meanwhile, that other person prayed a simple prayer – just seven words lon…

Persistent Prayer || Teach Us To Pray || Luke 18:1-8

We’re continuing our series on prayer with Tim looking at persistent prayer. How do you go sticking at things for the long haul? Sticking at things for a long time, even when it’s hard going. As lockdown rolls on and Melbourne became the most locked-…

Bold Prayer || Teach Us To Pray || Luke 11:5-13

We’re continuing our series on prayer with Kirk looking at bold prayer. God wants us to be in relationship with him, asking things of him, like a kid asking their dad for an egg, or a neighbour asking a friend for a favour in the middle of the night.

Joy In Your Life || Stand Firm in the Lord || Philippians 4:1-23

The final section of Paul’s letter to the Church in Philippi packs a whole bunch of great points into a pretty short section. Tim manages to squish seven talks worth of tips from Paul into just one! Paul gives us seven things to help us “stand firm” in Jesus. Both Paul and Jesus knew of the challenge that many people go through, with the burden of worry and anxiety. Paul speaks to this in his letter, and Tim lends his thoughts and experiences to the reality of anxiety in our lives.  If you or someone you know struggles with anxiety to an extreme, reach out to someone for help. You can always call Lifeline on 13 11 14.

Pray, and Don’t Give Up
