PRAYER 101 Shared by Sister Fay Romer

Sister Fay Romer (lady in pink in photo) who has been an elder for a number of years in the history of the Anchorage Moravian Church shared a special message on prayer at last Sunday’s evening service.  Many people were blessed as a result of the message.  We hope it is instructive and a blessing for the reader and their families.  PURPOSE:  This lesson will explore a few biblical principles on how to pray properly. Since prayer is a vital part of the Christian life, we need to understand the correct way to pray.    My three (3) year old granddaughter likes to pray at meals.

Are We Disciples of Christ? Counting the Cost

The Cost Of Discipleship Matt 16:24-26: Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Key thought I have today is that some of us need a born again experience and others a re-born experience. Take a look at where you feel you are. Are you truly a disciple of Jesus now? What is a disciple? According to the dictionary a disciple is a student, learner, or pupil. In the Bible the word is used most often to refer to a follower of Jesus. Most of know that a true disciple is a follower of Jesus; it means that at some point in our lives we have made a commitment to Christ. It is always important to remain true to this commitment throughout life. Do we know of anyone that has backslid away from … Continue reading
