Why Should We Pray?

Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Gospel: Matthew 7: 7-12
Hymn:"My Hope is Based on Nothing Less"
Pastor Mike Aus
Podcast from Living Word Lutheran Church(ELCA); Katy,TX
Date: 10/4/09

1. If God's will is being done, why should we pray?
2. What does Paul have to say in Romans Chapter 11 about
the salvation of the Jewish people?
3. Do not be concerned if you cannot recall the exact moment when
you "accepted Jesus". Many believers experience "that moment";
others cannot remember a time in their lives when they did not
know Him.
