Pastor G has begun a series on The Lord’s Prayer. The basic title is “Lord, teach us how to pray”.
Week One: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10 (The Message) & Luke 11:1 (NRSV)). Check out some of the points and highlights of the message:
The first line of the Lord’s prayer reminds us that:
1. The Focus IS God!
2. The Focus is ON God!
3. The Focus is BUILT on God!
Prayer is not for God, it is for us.
Prayers design is to get us to do what God wants done!
Week Two: “…your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10). The Lord’s Prayer – Part 2 – “IT’S NOT ABOUT US!”.
1. Be open to Kingdom values!
2. Be open to Kingdom opportunities!
3. Be open to Kingdom goals!
In order for God’s Kingdom to come – some of our kingdoms have to go! Kingdom talk, and kingdom building can be dangerous and threatening.
The Lord’s Prayer begins with God and ends with God!
Please join us for Part 3! You won’t be disappointed.
PASTOR APPRECIATION: TLC family, get ready, get ready, get ready! On October 21, we will be honoring our Pastor, Tyrone D. Gordon, with our love, gifts, and well-wishes.
