Studies on Prayer

Prayer is a privilege and a gift that God provided his creation. We were created for a close, personal relationship with God and prayer is the way we communicate with our heavenly Father. God spoke with Adam and Eve in the Garden and has continued to speak to his creation throughout history. This study focuses on the prayers of God’s people throughout Scripture. When did people pray? What did they say and how did God respond? Billy Graham said, “Prayer is simply a two-way conversation between you and God.” This study will encourage you to pray with confidence in the knowledge that God is listening and glad you wanted to talk.

The Birth of the Christian Church

The book of Acts begins with the phrase, “In my former book, Theophilus.” Acts is the second volume of Luke’s history of the Christian church. The gospel bearing his name is the “former book” mentioned in Acts 1:1. Luke was a physician, a traveling companion of Paul, a historian and a theologian. His two volumes, combined, make him the most prolific author in the New Testament. The gospel of Luke and the book of Acts were probably written during the two years that Paul was imprisoned in Rome.

Many theologians have commented that it was Paul’s greatest writing. The book speaks of the greatness of God and the power of God’s Holy Spirit to change a person’s life. Paul began his letter by writing about the blessings of God, available for God’s holy people.
