PrayerJesus’ Invitation to Be Glad in Depending on God
“I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure.” Psalm 40:1-2
Prayer at Trinity Grace Church
At Trinity Grace Church, prayer is an all important means to being glad in Jesus’ gospel of grace. For us, prayer is both delight and duty, both personal and corporate.
Prayer is a journey toward delighting in God and his presence. We stand in awe that the God of the universe invites us to commune with him through personal conversation. The Psalms–the prayers of the people of God and even Jesus himself found in Scripture–give us permission to adore God, petition to him, and even lament with a refreshing honesty.
Prayer is a means to dutifully participate in God’s mission. As we align ourselves with God’s gospel mission in Scripture, we offer prayers that express the tension between God’s Kingdom already but not yet, between the hope of heaven and the reality of our broken world.
Luke, in his gospel account, describes an encouraging scene. “Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray.’” With a similar heart, we journey together at Trinity Grace in learning to pray both individually and corporately as a church community.
