Lord, Teach Us to Pray

November 5, 2016
In ancient Greek mythology, Narcissus was a handsome and egotistical descendant of the gods. He was haughty and disdainful of all around him. Seeking revenge against him, the mythical goddess Nemesis is said to have lured him to a reflecting pool where he fell in love with his own image.

In our day, no one would own up to being as self-absorbed as Narcissus, but many live their lives exactly that way. Their sojourn through life is exceedingly self-referential. And this self-absorption inevitably bleeds over into our prayer lives—sometimes with destructive spiritual side effects.

In contrast to all this, the pattern of prayer given to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ has an outward focus—principally on God Himself. What is that pattern of prayer and how can it transform our lives? Dr. D. James Kennedy explains in his message: “Lord, Teach Us to Pray.”

About D. James Kennedy, Ph.D.

The late Dr. D. James Kennedy remains one of the most listened-to Christian ministers in America. His forthright and rational presentation of the Gospel is heard via television, radio, and the Internet throughout America and the world.

Dr. Kennedy, who entered the presence of his Savior, Jesus Christ, on September 5, 2007, began his Christian life in 1953 after he was startled awake one Sunday morning by a preacher's stern question coming out of his clock radio. "Suppose you were to die today and stand before God," the voice boomed, "and He were to ask you, 'What right do you have to enter into My heaven?' — what would you say?" Dr. Kennedy soon discovered the answer, was converted to Christ, and shortly thereafter was called into the Gospel ministry. Today, Dr. Kennedy's broadcast messages are televised to a nationwide audience.

Dr. Kennedy served for 47 years as Senior Minister of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A modest mission church of 45 people when Dr. Kennedy arrived in 1959, the rocketing growth of the church made it, for 15 years, the fastest growing Presbyterian church in America. Decision magazine named the church one of the "Five Great Churches of North America." In 2005, Dr. Kennedy was inducted into the National Religious Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

Dr. Kennedy's energetic commitment to both evangelism and cultural renewal is demonstrated by four organizations he founded: Truth in Action Ministries (formerly Coral Ridge Ministries), Evangelism Explosion International, Knox Theological Seminary, and Westminster Academy.
