Jesus, Surrounded by Prayer

Sunday, December 16th, 2018

Message by Rev. Gilbert Nigh


1. John is an answer to prayer who prepares the way for Jesus. Luke 1:11-17

2. Jesus is an answer to prayer. Luke 2:28-32, 36-38

3. Jesus teaches us to pray. Luke 11:1-4; John 14:13-14

Summary: Jesus’ life was surrounded by prayer. The one who prepared the way was prayed for, the coming Messiah was prayed for and then Jesus modelled prayer and taught us to pray. Our response is simply to pray. We shouldn’t make prayer more complicated than it is. Instead we can simply follow the Lord’s Prayer, praying in the way that Jesus taught his disciples.

When we look at the Christmas Story here today for a few minutes, when we look at the Advent, the coming of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, we see how He was welcomed in the lives of a few different people right at the beginning of His life. So the first person we will look at is Mary, the mother of Jesus.

Mary: Great Affirmations

Sunday, December 22nd, 2013

Message by Steve McElroy

Last week the priest Zechariah said the same thing in different words: “the rising sun will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness.” Now the predicted event is coming closer and closer. The angel Gabriel is back, and the divine spotlight shifts to Mary. And the prophecy is coming even clearer: For the first time we hear that the coming One will be called Jesus, and that this Jesus will be called the Son of God.

Zechariah: A Great Faith

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Message by Steve McElroy

Zechariah is a person of faith. Who was Zechariah? Zechariah was God’s priest serving God’s people in God’s temple. What is faith? Faith is when we believe and we know something’s true. Is our faith real, visible, living in all areas of our life? If it’s not, what do we need to do? Are we bringing our future to God? Zechariah brought his sadness, his hurt, and his wife’s feeling of disgrace. He brought all these things to the Lord in prayer. It’s the natural thing to do if we believe, to pray about our needs, concerns, doubts, hopes and our needs for guidance.
