Worship Preparation: June 13, 2021

Sunday, June 13, 2021
Read the sermon text: Acts 4:23-31
Read the sermon summary: What happens when God’s people pray? Certainly, we are nourished spiritually as we express our complete dependence upon him in prayer. We should recognize that in God’s mysterious economy he is completely sovereign over all things and at the same time hears and answers the prayers of his people. In our passage for this Sunday, God’s people respond to threats by praying together. Notice the people “lifted their voices together to God.” In the midst of opposition to the gospel of Jesus they pray not to be delivered, but that they would be granted boldness to proclaim Jesus all the more! In preparation for the sermon consider the following questions: How would you characterize the content of the people’s prayer in verses 24-28? What tension might we feel as we read verses 28 and 29? How does this passage inform the content of our prayers?

Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:
Build My Life
Worthy of ev'ry song we could ever sing
Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring
Worthy of ev'ry breath we could ever breathe
We live for You
Jesus the name above ev'ry other name
Jesus the only one who could ever save
Worthy of ev'ry breath we could ever breathe
We live for You
We live for You
Holy there is no one like You
There is none beside You
Open up my eyes in wonder and show me who You are
And fill me with Your heart
And lead me in Your love to those around me
I will build my life upon Your love
It is a firm foundation
I will put my trust in You alone
And I will not be shaken
