2 - Prayer

Series: Celebration of Discipline



June 12, 2023 | The Rev. Canon Dr. Jonathan Bailes

    A Christian, the Bible tells us, is one who has the Spirit of Christ, one who now addresses God as "Abba, Father." And so the life of every saint is invariably founded upon a habit of prayer. But for many, prayer remains difficult and discouraging. In this session, we discuss how to grow in this vital discipline.
