Series: Get Used to Different

May 12, 2024 | James Merritt
Passage: Matthew 7:7-11

When it comes to prayer, we are told to pray with persistence and anticipation. In today’s sermon, Pastor Merritt preaches from Matthew 7 outlining the process of prayer: asking, seeking, and knocking. We can continue praying to our Heavenly Father because He always gives us what is best in the right way, at the right time, for the right purpose, and for His glory and our good.

Series Information

Of all the sermons ever preached, one reigns supreme: The Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7. In that sermon, Jesus gives practical advice for how a Christian should live. In this extensive sermon series, Pastor Merritt will spend several months walking verse-by-verse through this life-changing sermon. Following Jesus is different from the way of the world, and those who follow Jesus will look different than the rest of the world. Join us for this series: “Get Used to Different: A New Way to Live."
