A New Opportunity for “Praying with Jesus”
During the season of Lent, Pastor Alex is sharing a series of sermons called, “Praying with Jesus.” Each week, he’s inviting us to focus on one of the prayers that Jesus prayed in the gospels, so that we can experience the relationship that our Lord shared with his Heavenly Father. For those, however, who would like to learn even more about prayer by sitting at the feet of Jesus, Pastor Alex would like to offer an additional opportunity.
With Christ in the School of Prayer is a classic work of Christian devotion that was written by Andrew Murray, a pastor and writer of Scottish descent who served as a missionary in South Africa in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. The book itself has 31 relatively brief chapters—perfect for reading as a daily devotional during the month of March. And because the work is in the public domain, we can make digital copies (pdf format) available for free.

Andrew Murray writes in his book, “Nothing delights Jesus more than to find those whom He can take with Him into the Father’s presence, whom he can clothe with power to pray down God’s blessing on those around them, and whom he can train to be His fellow-workers in the intercession by which the kingdom is to be revealed on earth.”
Won’t you allow Jesus to take you into the Father’s presence as He prepares us for the celebration of his resurrection?
