Prayer, Our Greatest Weapon (POHFW)

Preparing our Hearts to Worship


In an effort to help you prepare for the November 13th, 2016, Sunday morning corporate worship gathering and to aid you in your own reflections on Prayer, I wanted to pose a few questions and provide a few resources to prayerfully consider over the coming days. Our sermon is entitled, “Prayer, Our Greatest Weapon”. The main Scripture for the day is Ephesians 6:18-20.

In the spiritual battle, can you think of anything more effective or more powerful than teaming up with God?
