Worship Notes: Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, presents the conclusion of his sermon series on “Prayer.” Dan Stevens, our administrative pastor, hosts today’s worship service and brings the Children’s Lesson. Grant Wareham, a homeschool sophomore and organ student of Jerry Taylor, our minister of worship and music, is the organist for today’s service. About the Music As we gather for worship we first hear the from the “Suite Gothique,” Op. 25, composed by the French organist, Léon Boëllmann (1862-1897), who was organist at the Church of St. Vincent-de-Paul in Paris. is played by Jonathan Beebe, violin, a homeschool seventh-grader and violin student of Maretta Alden. The composer, Carl Bohm, was an immensely popular German composer of the last century. (Hymn No. 565) was written by Folliott Pierpoint who was a British professor. The hymn is a prayer of thanksgiving for the gifts God has given His children. from “Orfeo ed Euridice” is one of those great compositions that was a favorite of Fritz Kreitzler and recorded by many famous violin superstars including Jascha Heifetz. The is the best known work of composer Christoph Willibald von Gluck (1714-1787), who is also known for bringing the Opera to Paris. Karina Beebe, violinist, is a Freshman at Spring Valley Academy and a violin student of Maretta Alden. (Hymn No. 672) has an interesting history of being composed by Daniel Iverson in 1926 for an evangelistic crusade in Orlando, Florida. This hymn circulated widely and was “used” by other composers and arrangers, some of who claimed it as their own. There was great embarrassment when it came to light who the original composer actually was. composed by John Weaver in 1968, is a celebratory piece that is a favorite of organists who have the technique to handle the pedal passages. Chosen to end today’s service, it expresses the extreme joy Christians have knowing that God hears and answers prayers.

Next week: August 27 Jeff Bovee, principal of Spring Valley Academy, will present the sermon on Christian Education 9:30 a.m. First Serv 11:45 a.m. Classic Worship


Second teaching in series: Prayer I. A Prayer Unanswered II. The Reason for Unanswered Prayer A. Misguided Requests (Matthew 17:4) Peter said to Jesus, “Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will put up three shelters—one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.” (Matthew 20:21) “What is it you want?” he asked. She said, “Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom.” (Luke 9:54) When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, “Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?” “Sometimes the __________ is wrong and God says ‘__________.’”

B. Bad Timing (Isaiah 40:31, KJV) But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. (2 Peter 3:8, 9) But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Note: What God is doing in you is more important than what God is doing for you. “Sometimes the __________ is wrong and God says ‘__________.’”

C. Necessary Growth (Isaiah 59:1-2) Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. “Sometimes __________ are wrong and God says ‘__________.’” III. The Messy Mystery of Unanswered Prayer
