About the Series

Summer 2019

What would happen if you told God how you really feel or what you really think? Have you ever found yourself praying the same words over and over again without really opening up with God?

No other part of the Bible exposes our inner struggles more than the Psalms. Each Psalm reaches beyond the world of sight and sound to reveal what our senses long to see and hear—our authentic self and the heart of God.

Join us this summer as we walk through the Psalms and learn to pray real prayers. Don’t worry. God is big enough to handle all your pain, rage, fear, desire for control, prejudice, greed, doubt, unfulfilled longings… or any other thoughts or feelings stirring inside you. He’s inviting us to take off our mask and spend this summer praying the Psalms.

Resilient

Scripture References: Acts 4:1-33

From Series: "For the Gospel. For the City."

For God so loved the world… (John 3:16). God’s vision extends to all 195 countries and to the 7,614,423,551 people alive today. However, as we study Christianity from almost 2 millennia ago, we learn that global vision always begins at home. Rockets need launching pads. Planes need runways. Military missions depend on a home base. Likewise, God is inviting us to strengthen the ministry to our own community before we reach out to more cities or countries. How do healthy Christians engage their own neighborhoods?

Going Deeper

Prayer is a foundation of the Christian life. Yet, if we are honest, it can be a great area of struggle and dryness. The Psalms can reinvigorate our passion as God gives us words to speak. We learn how to go to our Father in weakness, desperation, anger, joy, and praise in the Psalms. We live the full scope of the human experience in the presence of God. He is ready, willing, and able to hear your concerns, fear, hurt, and pain.

Read through the purpose and instructions on how to use this study. There is freedom in the amount of time, study, and depth you choose to give to this study.

Let’s ask God to move in our hearts and in our church to establish a growing movement of prayer and praise!

Praying with Purpose and Perspective

All of us need to work on our prayer life. All of us need to make sure that our lifeline is untangled, free of debris, and fully connected to the Lord.

This Core Class video and study notes are available for you to dig deeper into your prayer life.
