Modeling Grace Through Prayer Requests

This week we invite you into Dr. David Powlison's Dynamics of Biblical Change class to hear a complete lecture on "Prayer Requests." We wanted to share this lecture with you because we believe it to be an excellent example of CCEF's commitment to bring "Christ to Counseling and Counseling to the Church." Dr. Powlison teaches us that the way we as pastors, counselors, or group leaders model sharing prayer requests can actually become a teachable moment for others in our churches, helping them to better apprehend the grace and mercy of Christ.

C.J. Mahaney also has a new audio excerpt today from his ongoing interview with Powlison (4:42), where he asks him to elaborate on this quote:
Don’t ever degenerate into giving advice unconnected to the good news of Jesus crucified, alive, present, at work, and returning.

Seeing with New Eyes (P&R, 2003), p. 43.
