    July 26:  What Pastors Pray  Notes / Podcast

    Paul passionately prayed that the Colossians would walk with God (aka live a God-pleasing life).  That is why he prayed for their knowledge, both knowledge of God’s law, which would guide them down the right walking path, and knowledge of the gospel of Jesus, which would energize them to follow that same path.  In the same way, we pray passionately for a deep knowledge of both the law and the gospel.

    July 12:  Deliver Us From Evil Notes / Podcast

    We ask God to intervene so evil wouldn’t win. Bring out all the ways that God makes sure Satan doesn’t get the last word. He stops evil from touching us. He uses evil for our good. He takes us to heaven out of this evil world.

    June 28:  Forgive Us As We Forgive Notes / Podcast

    The 5th petition is about not giving people what they deserve. We ask it every day from God in our confession and God wants his mercy to drive karma out of our lives. Don’t give people what they deserve. Forgive as God has forgiven you.

    June 21:  Everything You Need  Notes / Podcast

    Teach the bigness of this phrase and connect it to the generous heart of God. How miserable would this very moment be if God didn’t give this bread (a government to protect us, bodies that work, air to breathe, beauty to see, breakfast to eat, family that loves, neighbors that protect, etc).

    June 14:  My Kingdom Come  Notes / Podcast

    I like to summarize petitions 1, 2, & 3 with the phrase “teach, believe, and do”. When we teach the truth, believe the truth, and live according to the truth, God’s name is hallowed, his kingdom comes, and his will is done.
