The Dependence of Prayer

The Dependence of Prayer

Our God is our rock, our mighty fortress, our cornerstone, our dwelling place. He is our friend, too. Yet often we think of ourself and think we are self sufficient, or a self-made man. But not one of us made ourself. You can’t even watch this video without depending on the work of hundreds or thousands of others: miners for the metals and materials used in computers to factory workers, power plant engineers, coders for the video site, the editing suite, and countless others. None of us is self-made. Another way to say that is that were are all dependent…and we are all dependent on God.

There is no place that we demonstrate that dependence more than in prayer, as demonstrated and practiced by Jesus himself. He taught us to remain dependent in prayer for our physical needs, our spiritual needs, and relationally as well. Listen and join in the signing, pray alongside us, and hear the word of God proclaimed as the series “Learning to Pray” continues from Dr. Rob Pochek at FBC Park Street.
