SERMON TITLE: “When You Pray”
SERMON TEXT: Luke 11:1-13
PREACHER: Rev. Kim James
OCCASION: July 12, 2020, at First UMC
Those of you who have attended our First United Methodist Church for a while know that Chris Green has played his cello for us several times over recent years. Chris is a fine musician, so when he offered to play for us again this summer, I was pleased. And when Chris told me that the title of the piece was “Prayer,” it seemed natural to create a whole worship service around that theme. Prayer is something we Christians believe in and practice a lot even in normal times. Now, during this pandemic and all its ill-effects on our physical, emotional, and financial well-being, probably most of us have found ourselves praying even more. So let’s take a look this morning at Luke 11, and see what Jesus said you should do when you pray.
