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.

Sanctifying Prayer

Sunday, February 25th, 2018

Message by Pastor Gilbert Nigh

Text: 1 John 5:13-15, 1 Thessalonians 4:3-12

As we think of Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, as our example for how to live our life, certainly we should also be following him in prayer, and so we know that prayer is about talking or a conversation with God, but what about the content of our prayers, there was a conversation with God about what? Just about the things that are on our mind, the things that as we sit and as we think about life, the things that are on our mind, we just bring them to God, is that’s what it’s about? So let’s think about that a little bit this morning. What is this conversation with God all about? Let’s start by looking at some words, our friend the apostle John gives us something to think about as he writes his first letter to his friends, his dear children, as calls them we don’t really know who they were, but at the end of the letter, he says this: “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.”

Message by Pastor Gilbert Nigh

Text: Acts 4:23-31

As we are doing outreach, are we bold, are we willing to take risks, to act innovatively, to have confidence and courage? This is where we come to the Book of Acts. We find our friends in the Book of Acts, doing just this.
