The early Church clearly understood that prayer is at the center of Gospel ministry. Today, however, many churches have lost conviction regarding our urgent need to keep prayer at the heart of our mission. Daniel Henderson explains that praying churches are not primarily a matter of programming, but of a culture of prayer that begins with leaders who seek God earnestly and grows as prayer becomes the center of every aspect of ministry.

In his second letter to Timothy, the Apostle Paul placed his "signature" at the beginning, as was customary at that time. Alistair Begg's message on these opening verses guides us through Paul's greeting to his younger colleague, as he prayed God would give him "grace, mercy, and peace."

A survey of pastors recently revealed that a scant 16% were satisfied with their prayer life. Pastor Thabiti Anyabwile takes us to Paul's first letter to Timothy to show us the basic, yet oft ignored Christian discipline of prayer. With a pastor's heart, Thabiti uses 1 Timothy 2 to discuss what we are to pray, why we pray, and how we are called to pray. For all pastors, the gentle reminder that before we talk to men about God, we should be talking to God about men is a basic which we can never tire of hearing.

Alistair Begg shares words of wisdom from the flyleaf of his Bible with students on the threshold of a new academic year. First, if Jesus Christ is worth serving, He is worth serving well.

While many today find themselves consumed by the latest fad or new idea, Alistair Begg affirmed that preaching and prayer are the primary duties of the pastor.
