What do we pray?

This, then, is how you should pray Matthew 6:9 In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus is overturning the lies the world has told us: lies about what is important and what is not, lies about how to be happy and, even, what happiness is. In his teaching on prayer he overthrows both the corruption…

Descent

After passing through six landmarks of Old Testament history we move into the era of fulfilment that begins with the long-awaited coming of the Christ. His birth is, therefore, not simply the beginning of something new, but the completion of something ancient. We look at Luke’s account of Gabriel’s annunciation in Luke 1:26-38 which powerfully…
