Jul 10 - What’s the Deal with Prayer?

3 Little Stories Jesus Told

Luke 11:5-8, 18:1-8 & 18:9-14
Jesus’ disciples asked him to teach them to pray because Jesus’ praying was very different from the typical prayer experiences they had known. Besides giving his followers a model prayer that we still use today, he also shared some wonderful insights through 3 brief stories that deserve our attention.

Guest Preacher: Wes Haystead

Wes HaysteadMy wife, Sheryl, and I moved to Ventura in 1980 and began attending Eastminister Presbyterian Church that summer, becoming members that fall. At the time I was Senior Editor at Gospel Light Publications, where I had worked since the early ’70’s and where Sheryl and I met. By the mid ’80’s, I was doing writing and editing projects for a variety of Christian organizations, as well as assisting in the early years of providing record-keeping software resources for church, school, and mission agencies. I continued in that latter role until I retired at the end of 2011. I have served several terms on Session at Orchard (Currently serving as a Discipleship Elder), and was part of three pastoral search teams here. But most of all, I’ve been teaching Sunday school (just about every age group) since my teen years back in the ’50’s.
