Prayer Series Wrap Up by orchardblog

This past Sunday we closed out our 6 week prayer series, Vertical Reality.

The more I think about it, the more I believe that this was probably one of the most impactful series we’ve ever done at The Orchard. In fact, during this series, it became obvious to me that for many in our community, this was the first time they had really heard a teaching on the importance of prayer and the role that it plays in our lives.

In case you didn’t make it out this past weekend, I took a few minutes at the end of Ted’s message and issued a challenge to everyone. The challenge is that we would not walk away from a series like this one without placing a much higher priority on prayer itself. I also had everyone take about a minute in silent prayer asking God, “now what?”

The question is, “Ok, God – I’ve heard some good things about prayer – now, what do you want me to do with it?”

James 1:22-25
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. 23Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror 24and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. 25But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does.

How has this series impacted you? I’d love to hear about. Email me or click on comments and share with us all!
