Messages about prayer


Spirit-filed boldness-an absolute essential of a christ-centered witness

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: boldness, Holy Spirit, prayer

An immediate outcome of Pentecost was a boldness in the Spirit. To profess Jesus is LORD is not for the faint of heart. Consider how boldness is an absolute and essential sign of a faithful witness today.  Text: Acts 4:5-13, 23-31



Speaker: Dale Zimmerman
Topics: Faith, Peace, prayer, unshaken

As the world shakes around us, where can we look to find something unshaken to have faith in? Acts Chapter 10-12 show an early church with a world shaking around them, but still having Unshakable faith in Jesus. The same is true for us today, we need unshakable faith in Jesus.  Text: Acts 10: 9-17; 12: 1-11


Prayer, Not Despair

Topics: anxiety, prayer

How has the current health crisis affected you? Has it raised your anxiety level? In Philippians 4:6 the Apostle Paul provides a road map out of the valley of fret, worry and anxiety. This involves prayer, petition and presenting our specific requests to God with thanksgiving. It involves acknowledging God’s Sovereignty and counting the blessings we have already been given.  Text: Philippians 4:4-8


The Frustrations of Prayer

Topics: Faith, God's goodness, Persistence, prayer, Trust

Jesus teaches us to pray boldly with the expectation that God our Father delights to give his beloved children all that is good for them. As we pray, we can be confident in the goodness of God. God’s timing can frustrate us, and yet it is an unexpected part of His goodness as we discover from the Israelites, Abraham and Sarah, Joseph and Elijah.  Text: Luke 11:5-13; 1 Kings 18


Gotta Have Faith

Topics: Faith, move mountains, prayer, Trust

The account of the fig tree withering is a teachable moment for the disciples on the power of faith. What is faith? How is it pleasing to God? Fight the good fight of the faith.  Text: Mat. 21:18-22, Heb. 11:1-6, I Tim. 6:12-16


Intercessory Impact

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: Faith, intercession, prayer

Does intercessory prayer make a difference? It is natural to do the grunt work ourselves and qualify the activity of God through our busyness. Unified intercession is a key hinge-point in unleashing the activity of God…even in a book which never once mentions His name. Text: Esther 4:13-16; 6:1


A Call to Battle

Topics: Fasting, Humble ourselves, prayer

I want to bless the shepherds of our congregation but God has been working in me about calling all of us to go to battle against Satan and his desire to destroy us. I believe he his has come up against the family, against mothers and babies, against marriages. God built the ‘Family Life Center’ and the enemy of our soul wants to bring it down. What are we willing to do to change our focus from a life of comfort to one of going to battle in Jesus name? Are we willing to step out into the living water of God that flows from his heart? Text: Matt 6: 2,5,16. Daniel 10:2,3,12-14
