If God knows everything I want and need, why should I pray? What’s the point? Today we explore what prayer really is- and no, it’s not a shopping list you give to God. It is much, much more. Why we pray, how we pray, and how it changes us, our world, and God is our topic for today. Based on Jeremiah 29:8-14, and this clip from Talledaga Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby:

    Dear Pastor Scott,

    I have been looking for a church for a while now and came across your website. I liked the content and message enough to go to your blog. The clip from Talledaga Nights was posted, so I watched it. While the one you played at church was edited, this one is not. I’m sure you have a good point for using this
    in your sermon, but I could not get past the language and disrespect towards Jesus.

    I debated posting a response because it wasn’t positive, but I felt that the feedback might be helpful to you.

      Thank you for letting me know. I’m not sure how I made that mistake, but it’s certainly not what I intended, and I appreciate you calling that to my attention because it allowed me to correct the error. The correct clip is now up, and thank you again for calling it to my attention.
