The Life of Prayer

In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer holds a virtual chat about prayer with Rev. Michael Coppersmith of Georgetown, Texas. Coppersmith leads the Prayer Warriors ministry, which is a group of people around the country who pray for the Seminary, its students, its faculty and staff, and its mission. “I like to think of prayer as an intimate conversation with God that’s based on the Word of God and led by the Holy Spirit,” Coppersmith says. “So much of true prayer really flows out of a life of being in the Word. The more you are in the Word, the more the Spirit of God working through the Word influences you and leads you in praying and conversing with God.”

In the audio version, listen to a sermon from Coppersmith given at Mission Liberty Hill Lutheran Church in Liberty Hill, Texas. You can download the episode in video (mp4) or audio (mp3) format at the Word and Work Scholar page: https://scholar.csl.edu/wordandwork/90/.

Word and Work: An Intersection is a video and audio program providing a behind-the-scenes look at ministry where everyday life and God’s Word meet. It is broadcast on KFUO Radio every Thursday at 2:00 pm CT.
