Prayer: Practice by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will be in the second part of our series on prayer. Once we understand the doctrine of prayer, it will impact the way we pray. Our practice of prayer shows others what we believe about God and His ability to work in our lives. The title of this weekend’s message is “PRAYER: PRACTICE.”

Prayer: Doctrine by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will explore the doctrine of prayer from Scripture. So many times in the Bible, God outlines for us the nature of prayer and the importance of talking with our Heavenly Father. The title of this weekend’s message is “PRAYER: DOCTRINE.”

Justified by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we will be looking at the parable of the Pharisee and tax collector. Both characters came to God in prayer, but their hearts were in very different conditions. The Pharisee compared himself to the tax collector, thinking he was justified in the eyes of God. But as we will see in this message, God’s standards are very different from our own. The title of this weekend’s message is “JUSTIFIED.”

Desperate by Pastor Abidan Shah

DESPERATE by Pastor Shah, Clearview Church, Henderson Introduction: It’s amazing how God lines up our activities at Clearview. He knew that this weekend Curt Mulhollen will be called home and so he set up our 24-hour prayer vigil during the time that he was dying. Also, as many of you know, Curt was very active with...

Discipleship: Intercession by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend, we turn our attention to the importance of prayer. Throughout Scripture, we see the emphasis on prayer and the privilege of talking to our Heavenly Father. Jesus, Paul, James, and many others in the New Testament talk about the importance of prayer, not only for ourselves but interceding on the behalf of others, too. The title of the message this weekend is “DISCIPLESHIP: INTERCESSION.”

Partners by Pastor Abidan Shah

This weekend’s message is titled “PARTNERS.” Paul regarded the Philippians as partners in the gospel; their relationship moved Paul to pray for them, that God would bless them and that they would abound in love. Paul’s love for the Philippians is evident in how he prays for them.

How to Close a Prayer by Pastor Abidan Shah

In this message we will look at the line – “For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” Some people claim that these words were not in the original manuscript. First, we will see how they are original and then we will understand how they are integral to the Lord’s Prayer.

When God is Your Father by Pastor Abidan Shah

We have so many misconceptions about what Jesus meant when He said – “Our Father in Heaven.” For starters, He wasn’t the first one to use the title “Abba” in prayer. Neither does the word “Abba” imply a special love relationship between a little child and his/her father.

Having said that, the true implications of “Our Father in Heaven” are very significant and transforming for our prayer lives.

Talking to the Father: Prayer that gets Heard – Pastor Abidan Shah

Repeatedly Jesus refers to God as the Father. He wants us to see Him as a benevolent and just heavenly father. He wants us to ask Him freely for everything we need.

Many times we have such a clouded view of God. We treat Him like the CEO of heaven, whose only desire is to take things away from us and make us feel miserable. Nothing is further from the truth. God wants us to ask Him for what we need and ask freely.

Secret Religion – Prayer

This week the focus is on Prayer. Again, Jesus warns His disciples not to make prayer a time of spiritual show. Instead, they should pray in secret to their Heavenly Father. In turn, He will not only approve our prayers but also blesses us before all.

Thankful for my Church Family

THANKFUL FOR MY CHURCH FAMILY by Pastor Shah, Clearview Church, Henderson Thanksgiving is upon us and we are told to be thankful for our family, friends, health, nation, and even spiritual things like the Word of God and our salvation. But there’s one thing that we usually don’t hear in this list – it’s our... Continue Reading →

How to Enjoy the Holidays

It is that time of year when things start getting hectic with Thanksgiving around the corner and Christmas not too far away. Unfortunately, people get stressed out with work, shopping, cooking, cleaning, etc. and miss out on the real meaning of Thanksgiving and Christmas.

WHEN MOTHERS PRAY

History is replete with examples of the prayers of women, especially mothers. God delights in their prayers and wants to answer them. One such example is found in the Old Testament – the prayer of Hannah (1 Samuel 1). As you know she couldn’t have any children and she prayed before God earnestly and her prayers were answered. How did she pray?
