First Presbyterian Church of Starkville

Pray in the Power of the Lord’s Prayer and the Prayers of the LORD


John 17; Luke 23:34; Mark 14:32-36

The “Lord’s Prayer” actually = the Prayer/Way for the Lord’s disciples to pray.

The LORD’s own Prayers – within the Godhead.

The Power of both: totally integrated.
