3GT Episode 179: Public Prayer
With the 3GTers in exile from the house of God, they are grateful they can at least worship by participating in online services. Hearing pastoral prayers puts longing in their hearts for corporate worship to be restored. So they discuss the importance of prayer in public worship.
To assist them, the prof pulls out some wisdom from Professor R.J. George, who taught at RPTS a century ago and wrote an extremely practical three-volume set on pastoral theology. In instructing on public praying, he emphasized such things as the need for Trinitarian prayer in worship, how a minister can cultivate the graces of prayer, and how the pastor should directly address God. The guys interact with the sage advice of George, point out how often the modern church is shallow in prayer, and offer practical suggestions on how the church should engage in prayer in the sanctuary of the Lord.
As the Lord's house is to be one of prayer, it's important to emphasize this feature of the church. So join along with 3GT as they interact on this important topic!
