The Priority of Prayer

From Series: Standing Firm in Shaky Times, Volume 3

1 Peter 4:7  (ID: 1487)

Sharing the instruction that he received from Christ, Peter makes clear to his readers that prayer is necessary and important in the lives of Christians. Because prayer is the chief expression of our relationship to God it should exist as a fundamental part of the Christian life. In this sermon Alistair Begg points us to the promise of Christ’s return, providing six principals to help Christians fully understand why God intends for his followers to give time and attention to the practice of prayer.


7The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers.
