Kingdom Prayer: How the Christian Touches Heaven to Change Earth
with Tony Evans
July 16-18, 2020Live Stream
The central theme of Scripture is the glory of God expressed through the advancement of His kingdom so that His will is “done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10, NKJV). God has authorized the church to exercise His authority and bring the power of the Holy Spirit into the world’s needs, challenges, and opportunities through prayer.
Yet prayer is the most misunderstood and neglected aspect in our congregations. It has been estimated that most Christians pray three to five minutes a day. Why—when God’s Word shows us how we can make this a joyful priority in our lives?
Come study God’s plan for prayer in the body of Christ—and how the church operating for the kingdom is the key hope for a broken and divided culture. Return home inspired to actively take part in a solid kingdom-minded church. (Matthew 6:6-13)
