Prayer : Does it make any difference? Launches tonight at 7:00pm

Tonight we launch a new study on Prayer beginning at 7:00pm in the Worship Center at First Wesleyan Church Gastonia. 
I invite you to come join us for this DVD driven teaching series followed by a time of prayer. 

In this six-session video curriculum, award-winning author Philip Yancey probes the very heartbeat—the most fundamental, challenging, perplexing, and deeply rewarding aspect—of our relationship with God: prayer. 

What is prayer? How does it work? And more importantly, does it work?

 In theory, prayer is the essential human act, a priceless point of contact between us and the God of the universe

In practice, prayer is often frustrating, confusing, and fraught with mystery. 
Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference? is an exploration of the mysterious
 intersection where God and humans meet and relate. 

Yancey explores such questions as:

 •Is God listening?

 •Why should God care about me?

 •If God knows everything, what’s the point of prayer?

 •Why do answers to prayer seem so inconsistent and capricious?

 •Why does God seem sometimes close and sometimes far away?

 •How can I make prayer more satisfying?

You are invited to come and enhance your prayer life in 2017.
