Cornerstone exists because of Jesus. We'd love to show you how your story matters to him, and how his story matters for you.
The church isn't an organization or a building. The church is a family—God’s family, filled with redeemed sinners that are now his children because of Jesus.
Just like a vine grows best with a good trellis, our church family grows best with good programs. Our programs and ministries are tailored to support the community and mission God has given us.
The God we pray to is the Sovereign King of the universe. While this gives us a great deal of confidence knowing that he is all powerful and can always bring about his will, it also can seem to demotivate our praying at times. We wrestle with questions like, “If God already knows what I’m going to pray, and has the ability to bring about his own will, then what’s the purpose of prayer?” In our passage this week we will see two of the main reasons for praying to a God who is King highlighted: We pray for his glory and we pray for our good.
1. Do you more often pray for God’s will to be done or for your own will to be done?
2. In what ways do questions about God’s sovereignty tend to demotivate your prayers?
3. How might a fresh appreciation for God’s glory motivate you to seek him in prayer?
4. How might an appreciation for how praying transforms you motivate you to seek God in prayer?
