Prayer in the Local Church, Jim Sterns –
Here is a powerful and direct 13 minute video message on prayer in the local church, and I realize that this is a very challenging message that might provoke some strong feelings or opinions on this topic. But I hope it causes us to look around at our local church to see if there is an actual culture of prayer. I know it is one thing to say that prayer is valued, but is prayer a reality in the midst of your local church? I don’t believe that prayer is just a new ‘trend’ for the local church, I believe God is reviving His royal priesthood and restoring a relationship to Him.
Here is a great diagram that Jim Stern made that breaks down some of his points.
