"The Praying Lifeguard" (Romans 10:5-15, Matthew 14:22-33)

Rev. Dr. Marjorie E. NunesRev. Dr. Marjorie E. Nunes, August 13, 2017
Part of the Sunday series, preached at a Sunday service

Jesus was a prayer! How often did Jesus pray in the Gospels? The Bible tells us in (1 Th 5:17) to "pray without ceasing." While I don't believe this literally means to never stop praying, I would say that Jesus probably came closer to never stopping than any person who has ever lived on this planet. He was continually in a prayer mode. Jesus prayed alone; Jesus prayed before a meal; Jesus prayed before all great endeavors; Jesus prayed to show us that we should not live without prayer. Here are some important facts: Prayer is the key to the heart of God; prayer is communication with God; prayer must be more than an emergency magical lamp rubbed in a crisis; prayer is not passive it is active; prayer is not a magical means by which we get God to do what we want; prayer is an inner openness to God which allows his divine power to be released in us; Ultimately, the power of prayer is not that we succeed in changing God, but that God succeeds in changing us; pray your way!
