Adult Bible Study: Lord, Teach us to Pray
led by Vickie Huckeba
was scheduled to start Sept 14 -postponed due to weather
will now start Sept 21
Tuesdays 10 am
Prayer is a relationship with God that grows and matures over time.
"We can be mature in one area of our Christian walk and still be a beginner in other areas," Burger writes. "That is not an indictment but an acknowledgment of the different ways we grow. If we are still a beginner in our prayer life, God simply desires us to take the next step… We are not striving in our own strength. God desires and provides for an intimate prayer life for all believers."
Burger's study combines scriptural teaching and personal testimony that will help you overcome obstacles to intimacy with God.
