Prayer: Prayer and Peace (#913)
We’ve been having a series on prayer and we are just planning a fellowship weekend the end of March/the beginning of April, on Stayed Mind and the Peace of God; so I thought I’d have a little segue here where we’ll talk about prayer and peace.  And by the way, this will be the last teaching in our series on prayer.  Then I’m going to start another series on the abundance of God.  Where we’ll be talking about how God, in every single area of life, provides abundantly.  Whatever the area of life is that you may have a concern or need, God is there and God can provide, not only what you need, but much more.  So, we’ll go into the abundance of God starting next time.  But today, we’ll wrap up our series of many weeks on prayer.  And this will be a bit of a segue into our class on Stayed Mind and the Peace of God, which we’ll have at our fellowship weekend, in about six weeks.  And several of the verses, because of other things they cover, we would have already talked about in this series on prayer; but some of them we haven’t.  So let’s get started here; let’s start in Psalm 37 and in verse 7…
