Who Needs God • Part 2┃”Gods of the No Testament” | North Point Community Church

What if the God you walked away from never existed to begin with?


The Lord’s Prayer | Matthew 6

Jesus gave us a great template on how we should pray. We look at the elements of that prayer and how we can apply them to our regular prayer lives. The elements of Jesus’s prayer included worship, the desire for God’s will, depending on God to meet our needs, confession, and the quest for godliness.

There are elements of this that we can incorporate into how we commune with God. We have the opportunity to connect to the creator of the universe, the redeemer of our souls, and yet we frequently make it about us. The Christian life is about selflessness, so our prayers should not be self-focused.
