Pastor Erik dives into Acts 12 as we learn 3 important lessons about the way the early church prayed: 1. They gave God their WORRIES, 2. They understood prayer is a WEAPON of WAR, and 3. They were persistent like the WIDOW (Luke 18). In the same way, we should give our worries to God, understand that we fight our battles on our knees, and we need to keep praying and asking and not give up!

We kick off a new series as we return to the Book of Acts!
