Announcements – March 31 2023


Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,
This Sunday we will be continuing our messages on ‘Learning to Pray With Jesus’ from Luke 11:1-4.  So far, we’ve discovered that our prayers are to be lifted to our “Father,” seeking the sanctification of His “name,” and the coming of His “kingdom.”
But now we arrive at what is the third petition in this model prayer, and it has to do with “bread.”  With this third request, we now turn our attention from heaven to our own lives and needs here on earth.  According to our Lord, it is “our daily bread” that we need, and that we must persistently seek from our Heavenly Father.
So what is this “bread”? And does anybody really need it?  Aren’t our cupboards already filled with “bread” and all the other food we need?  Is there really any connection to our modern lives and this seemingly unnecessary and outdated request?
Well, as you might suspect, there is indeed a very big connection to our lives, even in such an affluent culture as ours.  It is, for sure, a prayer that all disciples of Jesus must pray, no matter how much “bread” they may already have!
I can’t wait to see you this Sunday!
All my love and prayers, always,
