Sermons on Prayer

Life is Hard

A centered heart is grateful, even when life is hard. Gratitude shapes our perspective and gives structure to our lives. In this season of life that continues to challenge us, we look to Psalm 107 for guidance in encouraging gratitude in our lives. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

In a time of fear and uncertainty, God offers us something even better than courage. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Stuck in the Muck

If prayer is a space that God has given us to enjoy him and find purpose to life, what happens when prayer doesn’t work? Is it possible that we who struggle with prayer might find a happiness in God that would bring life to our inner selves and to those around us? Is there something God wants us to know about ourselves that could free us from the mundane, strengthen our souls in the face of difficulties and bring gladness…

A Tale of Two Kings

The world has changed, and we have new questions about things like work, childcare, friendship, and our own wellbeing. How can ancient truths and habits help us center ourselves in a world that often feels off-balance? The first step towards health and a heart centered on Jesus is honesty. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

The Way of Worship

This last year, we’ve all been forced to deconstruct our schedules. And now that we’re putting them back together, what role should church have? Do we need to set aside a day to take in a service, in person or online? And what about Sundays? Should they be any different from Saturdays? Pastor Bryan will examine those questions through a lens of worship this week. *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the…

Blessed the Best

When God doesn’t answer prayers in the way we expect, he can still take our disappointments and make them into something new. But what about those times when the unanswered prayer doesn’t appear to have any long-term gain at all? Is it possible that if we had prayed differently God could have turned an unanswered prayer into a better opportunity? 

The Promises, Practices and People of God

We are all made for relational connection, but are feeling more lonely and disconnected than ever. How does God help us build meaningful relationships with each other, even in the midst of a pandemic? How can the promises, practices, and people of God help to bring about lasting change in our lives? *Christ’s Church is a strategic partner of Grace Chapel in Lexington, MA and features the teaching of Pastor Bryan Wilkerson and the Grace Chapel Teaching Team.

Song of Silence

How can I find comfort and joy in a season of isolation and stillness? Why is silence so uncomfortable? What opportunities does silence present? We find comfort and joy when we quiet ourselves long enough to hear a new song. Silence can be terrifying, but it can also be just what we need. What if silence is… an invitation?

Do Something Different

One of the last things most of us need during this season of disruption is another thing to add to our plates. Is there something different we can do that will energize and empower everything else we’re doing already? Luke is going to tell us a story about Jesus that will show us just that.

Divine Encounter

Is God with us when things go wrong in our life? Can I really hope to encounter Him? Does God fix my problems when I pray? If you ask these kinds of questions, know this: It’s often at our point of need or pain that God wants to meet us and do something new!

Trouble in the Family
