Sermons on Prayer

All-Age Service: Prayer

Shona leads our all-age service for August looking at the subject of prayer. Who, how, when and where do we pray? Chris also shares a reflection based around the Lord’s prayer whilst Pete and Nick lead our sung worship.


Andrew Dalwood looks at David’s prayer in Psalm 26 and asks whether this would meet Jesus’ model for humility and repentence in prayer explained in Luke 18. Are we like David, too self-righteous in our prayers, too confident in our own abilities and forgetting where that righteousness truly comes from?

James leads the rest of the service, focussing on prayer for our country as the Coronation of Charles III is just around the corner, whilst Mike leads our sung worship.

Try Praying

This week we held our first in-person/Zoom hybrid service. We carry on the theme from our Pentecost service as Chris explains a little more about the Try Praying initiative, how it can affect our walk with God and how it can help others to start that journey.

The Prayer Course

As we begin a series of mid-week studies on Prayer, in place of a sermon podcast this week here is a link to the course that we will be following.

Prayer Life: The Church

As we celebrate Pentecost Chris explores the connection between prayer and the Holy Spirit in the early church. As we pray God’s Spirit will inspire us to pray more then as we are filled with the Spirit we will grow in knowledge, wisdom and understanding on how to pray and be inspired to pray more powerfully. The best place to start is right where you are!


Simon Bailey preaches on 1 Thessalonians Chapter 1, reminding us that faithful prayer bears fruit and that God is already at work preparing hearts to respond to Him.

“I will pour water on those who are thirsty and flood the dry ground.”

Prayer Life: David

Chris continues the series on prayer by looking at David’s prayer life. David’s extensive and varied prayer life causes us to examine our own and ask if we always prayer with our whole heart. If we don’t, then perhaps we don’t recognise our desperate need of God or that God is trustworthy.
