Teach Us To Pray: Sermon Audio

Prayer is something we do, but rarely understand. What is prayer, how is it to be done, what should we expect, is anyone really listening? We are not alone with our questions. Even the disciples expressed this lack of understanding when they said, “Jesus, teach us to pray.” Prayer, isn’t just something we do, but is part of who we are as God’s creation. What can we learn from Jesus’ teaching on prayer?
