Weekend Resource: Prayer- laying hold of God by His promises

Resource: This sermon, by Terry Virgo, will likely change how you view prayer. If it does not change you, it will refresh your commitment to prayer.

John Piper pointed me to the sermon via twitter: “I have just watched a sermon on prayer by Terry Virgo that will alter my year. I recommend it.”

I’ve listened to it twice today now. It is indeed a year-altering message from God’s word.

If you are desperate for a powerful prayer life, and hungry for further teaching, here is another sermon worth listening to, by Piper.

I pray the Spirit teaches you through these men, kindling a passion for God and coming to Him in prayer.
