Have you ever struggled to pray? Join us at South Bay Bible Church, 578 Montauk Highway, East Moriches, on Sundays, beginning February 10, at 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. for a new teaching series: The Lord’s Prayer

We are constantly tempted to selfish and religious prayer lives. Religion creeps in because we want to score and earn points with God, and selfishness enters our heart because we usually want our way. When these two things collide, we end up drifting away from God and lowering who God is in our minds to some cosmic genie-in-the-sky waiting to serve our every desire. This tends to make us think of prayer as nothing more than pulling the lever in some heavenly vending machine. 

This series helps followers of Jesus break the cycle of prayerless praying and develop a close, committed prayer life. “Don’t just pray when you’re desperate or need something; instead, build a true relationship with God and learn to spend time with Him on a consistent basis,” says Martin Hawley, senior pastor.

Part 3 of 6 - Our Father Cares (Matthew 6:11) – February 24: God is the marvelous Creator of the entire universe. Does God really care about the details of our daily lives? Does He have the time to notice little me? In this part of the Lord’s prayer, Jesus teaches us that bread is symbolic for everything we need for life including food, a healthy body, good weather, a house, our relationships, peace, and safety just to name a few, and as we’ll learn, God really does care!
