Sermon Title: In Times Like These By: Elder David Kauer Date: 05-08-2010 Key Text: Ephesians 6:10-20 In this message we continue from last Sabbath the exploration of Prayer as a conversation between a child of God and his/her loving heavenly Father, which is always through Jesus Christ, our mediator. There are always some who will ask the question: "Does prayer work? -- Does prayer make any difference?" We see the affirmative in the life of the prophet Elijah, Daniel, the Apostles and others. The challenge now is the same as it was then... It is the practice of the "Walk and Warfare of the Spirit filled Believer." (Approx. 44 min.)
Sermon Title: Praying According to God's Will By: Elder David Kauer Date: 04-17-2010 Key Text: 1 John 5:9-15 In this message we explore Prayer as a conversation between a child of God and his/her loving heavenly Father, which is always through Jesus Christ, our mediator.

Within this message is a testimony from Manny Adame with a personal example in praying according to God's will. (approx. 32 min.)
