Episode 45: Sermon on the Mount: Overcoming Obstacles to Prayer

Episode 45

Today’s Episode

Today we’re looking at prayer in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. So often we wonder if prayer works, if God really cares, or why even pray if God already knows what we need? Sometimes we even question whether the God we pray to is good.

I’m excited for this episode because Jesus’ teaching addresses so many of our questions. And where our questions remain unanswered He goes out of His way to reveal the good heart of God toward us. I’m looking forward to wrapping up our short 4-part series out of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount with you. I hope it will encourage you in your prayer life.
