Fall Bible Studies
Lake Ridge area
Christians often say “In Jesus’ name” to close their prayers. But is this truly a desire of the heart or a perfunctory “Yours Truly” to God? Bryan Chapell says we should begin our prayers in Jesus’ name–we should be Praying Backwards. In this practical and inspiring book, he shows readers that to truly pray in Jesus’ name is to reorder one’s priorities in prayer–and in life–away from oneself and toward Jesus and his kingdom. It is to pray believing in the power and the goodness of the One who hears, and thus to pray boldly, expectantly, and persistently. Readers seeking to transform their prayer lives will find wonderful direction in this book.
This study will meet on Thursdays, at 7:00pm beginning Oct. 7th. For more information contact Adrian Dobbels at 703-580-9454.
The book Respectable Sins: Confronting the Sins We Tolerate and the discussion guide by author Jerry Bridges help us to evaluate how we regard the sins we tend to overlook. They will help us work through anger, jealousy, pride, unthankfulness, judgmentalism, and more while looking to God for His grace and forgiveness.
