(Sabbath Sermon, 18th August, 2012)
Pour out your Heart to God in Earnest Prayer
As humans, we are but clay–we are fragile and vulnerable. At prayer, we are supposed to implore the greatest power in the universe to have pity on us and to come to our aid. We are supposed to throw ourselves on the mercies of God as we desperately call upon Him. Our souls are hunted day and night; our lives are tearing apart before our eyes; our businesses are in terminal coma and near death.
But the sad truth is that many of us do not know how to pray an earnest imploring prayer that touches the heart of God and thereby provoke His swift intervention. This is largely because, first, we often fail to appreciate the dangers that threaten us at every turn, much less articulate them in prayer. This world is "the valley of the shadow of death", full of perils and tragic unknowns which often catch people unawares. Download the full sermon here
