How do we go deeper in prayer? Certainly by learning from Jesus as recorded in Matthew 6:5-14. This message offers a Biblical exposition of the Lord’s Prayer – familiar to many but its depth and significance more than often realized.
Everyone in this world will encounter the kingdom of spiritual oppression, or darkness, in some way. When engaging this kingdom in a more direct way, it is best to know the characteristics, strategy, and tactics of the enemy.
