God would provide the herbs, fruit, and grass to be the provision for all the animals of the Earth. But this wasn't enough for the image bearer of God. For man, God would create a special place, a garden that would become the dreams of men. Yet why was it the dream of man? I think it was what it symbolized. Join us as we explore the creation of Eden.
Praying isn't just "talking back to God." And it's not meant to be a rote, mechanical exercise, let alone a good luck charm. Prayer is a conversation where we learn to pour out our gratitude and praise to God, surrender our will to his, and trust him with our needs – no matter how big or small.
God has determined to use missions and evangelism as his way of gaining ultimate victory over sin and death.

Pastor walks his children through Westminster Shorter Catechism question 104—especially explaining how we are to live and pray as those who depend entirely upon God's free gift to provide for us according to His perfect love, wisdom, and power.
Q104. What do we pray for in the fourth petition? In the fourth petition, which is, Give us this day our daily bread, we pray that of God's free gift we may receive a competent portion of the good things of this life, and enjoy His blessing with them.
God works in everything to accomplish his will for his glory and our good. David was preserved from doing something extremely harmful to his future when King Achish sent him home from the battlefirled. God worked that out for David's protection.
Paul's Wisdom in Prayer. Ephesians 1:17-23 Paul is praying the Church at Ephesus will come to an understanding and knowledge of what God wants for them.s we look at Paul's prayer for the believers at Ephesus, I want us to see his prayer as a prayer that we should make as our own. The Holy Spirit has put his prayer in His Word so we would pray the same prayer and understand the same things.Paul prays that the believers in Ephesus might know that God is gracious and glorious. Paul speaks of God's immense, immeasurable power.He is telling us that God's power is ours to know and experience! We need God's power for we are often weak and stumble. We need God's power because we insufficient and unable to do certain things on our own. We need God's power because we are ineffective in ourselves.
