Pray

August 22, 2011 by Matt Morgan

One of the knocks on church and religion are the experiences that some individuals have had (and which others have heard about) with a specific church, pastor, or religious leader who has made very legalistic demands on the lives of the people. Throughout history some churches and leaders have at times abused their authority and demanded of their people things that the Bible quite honestly didn't teach. Our natural tendency is to separate ourselves from these churches and individuals and to emphasize our freedoms instead. But when we take an honest look at the Bible there are certain practices that we ought to be involved in for the glory of God the Father and as a testimony of our faithful discipleship. We've been exploring some of those over the past few weeks and why they are so significant. Having explored the topics of 'believer's baptism,' 'giving,' and 'involvement in the church' we will conclude this week by taking on the topic of 'prayer.'
