Sermon Series on Prayer


How is your prayer life? This is one of the more embarrassing questions that Christians ask each other, because our prayer life usually consists in a few minutes in our daily devotions. Today (February 10, 2013), we come to the last portion of the third part of the Heidelberg Catechism, which is about sanctification or living as citizens of God’s kingdom. The first part of sanctification is the explanation of the moral law, the Ten Commandments. The second part is about prayer, which we begin today.
