Prayer Gathering

Location: Addison Street Community Church, 2132 W. Addison St., Chicago, IL , Chicago, IL US 60618

We've been going through the Westminster Larger Catechism's section on prayer. 

"Prayer is surrender—surrender to the will of God in cooperation with that will. If I throw out a boat hook from the boat and catch a hold of the shore and pull, do I pull the shore to me, or do I pull myself to the shore? Prayer is not pulling God to my will but the aligning of my will to the will of God."

– E. Stanley Jones, The Song of Ascents
