The Beginning of Prayer
Scripture References: Genesis 3:8-13
From Series: "Prayers of the Old Testament"
Studies of eleven great prayers found in the Old Testament. An excellent introduction to the eternal verities of the believer's access to an unchanging God through prayer, in any age. "Prayer, basically, is simplyconversation with God. There are always only two people represented in true prayer, you and God, and no one else. Others may be present...There can be two hundred people, or, as here this morning, many hundreds of people present, but real prayer is always a conversation directly between a single human being and God himself. There are many kinds of prayer we could talk about and will be talking about in the course of these studies. We will look at intercession, thanksgiving, supplication and various forms of petition, etc., but fundamental to them all is simply a conversation, a dialogue between an individual and God."
