Growing In Prayer with D. Blair Smith

Prayer is one of the primary means to grow in grace, and it is a great and powerful privilege. To live without prayer is to live without God, and to be content with little prayer ensures a weak spiritual life. Yet, many believers struggle with prayer. D. Blair Smith examines the life of prayer using the pattern of the Lord’s Prayer given by Jesus. He explains that faith without prayer is impossible, just as life without breath is impossible. This talk was given on Feb. 6, 2016 to the C.S. Lewis Fellows of Chicago at the historic Moody Church.
