Praying the Ancient Prayers

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Prayer is all around us, yet how often do we take time to actually stop and pray? Prayer is the natural sprout of the tree of faith, and arises through a desire to connect with God. All connection is based on communication, and communicating with God is a vital and necessary product of our faith. As inheritors of the Prayer Book, our tradition has a rich trove of prayers in the weekly Collects. In this sermon we learn about the nature of prayer, as well as the five parts that constitute most Anglican prayers.
