The Crossroads!

While finishing up the study on the Holy Spirit, I’ve also been outlining two other teaching series in tandem.

The first series is entitled ‘Lord Teach Us To Pray’ and it is an in depth study on the prayers of the Bible, from both the Old and the New Testament.

The second series is entitled ‘Learning From Ordinary People’ and it is a study of some fifty people from the Old Testament and fifty from the New Testament, and the lessons we can learn from their lives, their faith, their steadfastness, and even their mistakes.

Both studies will run for at least six months, so this is yet another protracted journey that we will be venturing upon.

My problem is this: I do not know which one to begin writing, and so I will let the readers of this web log decide. I would ask that you leave a comment, regarding which of the two aforementioned series you would prefer to delve into next.

I will leave this post up over the weekend, and I will tally your votes on Monday, and from there determine whether we will be discussing prayer for the next six months or so, or if we will be discussing the biblical heroes of the faith. In the end the choice will be up to you.

As always, thank you for participating, thank you for your prayers, as well as your encouraging words concerning the previous series we just concluded.

With love in Christ,
Michael Boldea Jr.

‘Lord Teach Us To Pray’

As soon as I saw this title, I knew what my vote was to be. I,ve recently started reading this blog (via twitter link) and am really looking forward to, being with you from the beginning of a series.

I'd love to do a study on prayer. I think becoming prayer warriors is going to become more and more important in the days ahead. It would be nice to get some training on how exactly you do that.

Heros of the Faith, something for my kids to glean from, true heros instead of sports icons or hollywood glitz. Of course prayer is not bad either. Ok I guess either will do, sorry : )

Both sound very good, but the "Lord Teach Us To Pray" would be extremely timely in our home.
Thank you for inquiring!

Vote for Biblical heroes of the faith, one aspect being their prayer life and dependence upon Yahveh and not their own abilities.

Thanks, Michael. Caleb

Hi Michael,

I would vote for "Lord, Teach Us To Pray" because if the Lord is teaching us how to pray, then we better learn how. There are many who know how, but many more who do not. A lot of us came out of, or were raised in a church where praying was thought of as lighting a candle, kneeling before a statue, repeating the rosary, and instead of speaking to God directly, we were taught to pray to Mary, "the Mother of God" because "she intercedes for us", none of which is taught in the Bible. Imagine my horror when I finally read the Bible and learned that most of what I was taught about prayer was erroneous! I read a book "The Lord's Prayer" by Alan Cairns that was an in depth, biblical study of the Lord's Prayer. This book really helped me to understand how to pray correctly and more effectively. It also gave me much insight that would probably take me years to discover on my own. Just as well, you perhaps are reaching another audience that could benefit from a similar study on prayer. And that's why I vote for "Lord, Teach Us To Pray" as the next topic for you to teach us!

Thank you and God bless you Michael,

Suzy
