"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    The Prayer Life (a window)

    As a deer pants for flowing streams, so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God? - Psalm 42: 1, 2

    My ears always prick up when I hear a man of God give us something of a window into his prayer life. I am especially eager to hear and learn from others who display a consistent and effectual life in prayer.

    I just came across this brief three and a half minute video (below) of Pastor Matt Chandler (from Dallas, Texas) and trust it will be a blessing to you in this regard. May it stir all of our hearts and focus our minds to live Coram Deo "before the face of God" - the very purpose for us being justified by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone. - JS
