Video Resources on Prayer
By Dan Hamil, NAB Executive Director
As we start off 2019 focusing on prayer, here are a few videos that range from a three-minute primer to a half-hour sermon. Our hope is they might serve to assist you with deepening your understanding of prayer, strengthening your prayer life, and challenging your misconceptions about prayer.
Dr. Oliver Crisp, a systematic theologian affiliated with Fuller Seminary, speaks about the difference between prayer as petition and prayer as presence.
This fairly dated video shows Dr. Haddon Robinson, known as a scholar and teacher on preaching, speaking at a seminary chapel service on the Lord’s Prayer.
Dr. Fred Long is a professor of New Testament at Asbury Seminary, and he provides a seven-minute review of Paul’s prayers in the book of Ephesians.
Dr. Tim Keller, former pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, in this audio answers the question of whether prayer actually changes things.
Women’s Connection Update
The most recent update from the Women’s Connection includes
- an introduction to the theme study for this year, Finding I Am by Lysa TerKeurst
- some great resources to help you lead or participate in a study
- an article from NAB’s Lisa Schmidt, sharing about how she’s entering this new year with a greater sense of who she is because of who God is
- and a challenge from Jean Ewing, Women’s Connection Team Leader, to be more deeply connected to the Lord in prayer.
Church Planter of the Week
Mark Zubert, Create Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Create Church describes itself as neighbors from every walk of life simply following Jesus in an informal, non-religious, relationship-first, compassionate community. In addition to their low-key weekly gatherings on Saturday nights, there are various gatherings throughout the week tailored to niche communities of people in an effort to go to the places Jesus would go, eat with the people Jesus would eat with, and create church for the people farthest away from the organized church. Pray for their efforts to connect with the local community through studying, playing, and praying together. Visit www.createchurch.org for more information.
