Insightful Sermon! We get an approach to prayer that most of us overlook. Instead of heading right into a list of needs or intervention in our life, we should first see that we are communicating with the God of the Universe. That He is Holy, full of Grace, and should receive blessing above all. In being in His Presence, we should praising Him more than requesting from Him. This sermon has opened a new way of praying from now on. I desire that I continue it every time I pray.
