More > pastor Oliver Heywood illustrates the necessity of spending time in private prayer each day. Using Matthew 6:6 as his text, Heywood teaches how to cultivate a habit of daily prayer which is both refreshing and delightful.

Through this teaching, the believer will find resources and encouragement to help fulfill this beneficial obligation.< Less
