From childhood,we were taught to pray. But as adults are we praying with true Biblical understanding...or still praying as children? This is a challenging and thought-provoking series on prayer that includes film,and eye-witness and some old texts with original new tunes. This resource features 10 film and musical components centered around one biblical theme,including:
- Welcome/Prompters: Your worship experience begins when your congregation is first seated! Six thought-provoking questions displayed on your screens will help prepare them for the sermon on prayer.
- Congregational Hymn: One of the most loved hymnes of the 20th century is"What a Friend We Have In Jesus." In this new beautiful orchestral score for choirs and praise bands,the emphasis is strongly on prayer...and the peace we often forfeit.
- Filmatic Moment: A very special addition to the topic of prayer is this excerpt from the biblical epic "Matthew." Integrity has selected Matthew 6:9-13 where Jesus teaches us how to pray. Because it is word-for-word text (NIV),it is perfect to introduce any teaching on prayer.
- Short Film: This special clip from the television movie A Vow To Cherish (Billy Graham Evangelistic Association) dramatically gets our attention with both the need for prayer and the beauty of those who pray with us.
- Contemporary Song: "Open the Eyes of My Heart Lord" is a fresh arrangement that visually comes to life. This song of worship and prayer would be a good choice to use at the closing of your service.
- Testimony: When a pastor loses his voice - not for weekend,but for 3 years - it begins a life changing experience for a church in Houston,Texas. In this well-documented short film,you'll hear first hand the story of a man whose friends prayed and the most unusual things began to happen.
- Scenes from Scripture: Psalm 139 is a favorite to many. But in this prayer of David,you see and experience it in a way often missed. Produced by Jeff Parker,this tool is ideal for any worship experience.
- Sermon Outlines: Dr. Michael Duduit,head of Preaching Magazine,has prepared a sermon outline you may wish to consider,adapt,or use in its entirety. In addition he has included a collection of illustrations for your consideration,centered on the theme of prayer.
- Leadership Guides: There are prepared guides to help you and your staff create deep and meaningful encounters for your congregation. Included is a Student Pastor Guide,Outreach/Small Group Guide,and a Pastor/Worship Leader Guide. This is not just a Sunday morning worship experience! Components not used in a Sunday service can easily be adapted for small groups,youth retreats,and Sunday school classes.
- Integrity's iWORSHIP: Integrity Music has long provided praise and worship music for churches throughout the world. For churches just beginning to use these visual elements in their services,there are 2 additional songs relating to the the of Prayer--all graphically designed and including lyrics and tracks.
