Blake Coffee taught on Sunday, July 20.  The video and listening guide from that lesson are below.

Venture Lesson (Blake Coffee)

Jesus, Teach Us to Pray

Luke 11:1-13; 18:1-8

The life of Christ taught prayer first and foremost as a daily necessity…like air and water.

Jesus’ model prayer is more a meeting agenda than it is a liturgy…topics for discussion every day.

God doesn’t want prayer out of a sense of obligation. Real prayer happens when we are all in and fully focused.

God is pleased to give us what we need…but maybe more like Mr. Miyagi than like Santa Clause.

Life isn’t fair, but God is. His sense of justice is perfect. Ours is suspect at best. Seek after His.
