 What is this sermon about?

This sermon is about prayer and what it means to pray constantly.

Why is this sermon important?

It is important because prayer is not about the words that we say or don’t say, it is being attentive and responding to God’s word in our life.

What is the context of this sermon?

This sermon is essentially one of the chapters of Steve Harper’s book, “Five Marks of a Methodist.” I used the iBooks edition as the basis for this sermon, which can be found online at https://itun.es/us/_NnO3.l

What are the next action steps?

Pray from the heart.

There is no one-size-fits-all style.

Silent prayer is as holy as spoken prayer.

Praying a prayer from a prayer book is as sacred as praying in tongues.

Prayer is the disposition of our heart toward God.

What is the good news (bottom line)?

The good news is that prayer is not about the words that we say or don’t say, it is attentiveness and a response to God’s word in our life.
