A famous preacher once remarked that “I’d rather be able to pray than be a great preacher; Jesus Christ never taught His disciples how to preach, but only how to pray.” Dr. Curtis Hutson once remarked there is more that you can do after you pray, but there is nothing you can do until you pray.”
Nearly 7 years ago I preached a simple message that concluded with a simple challenge, It has become one of the most referenced sermons i’ve ever delivered. Not because of the content of the message but because the challenge allowed God to work in the lives of many people in the Forest Park family. Just recently someone commented that a prayer from way back then had just been answered. The message called on all of us to identify 10 people and 10 situations the we would remember in prayer each day. This Sunday we’ll revisit that challenge and discuss prayer along the way.
