In the Words of a War Prayer series, Pastor Daniel will take us verse by verse through The Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13. These famous words are the model Jesus set for us to pray. During this series our small groups will be studying through Jesus' prayer. Join a Small Group and continue the conversation and learning through the week!
This week's message is called “A Battle Between Kingdoms” and is all about Matthew 6:10 - "Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."
