Prayer and the character of God; this is the first in a series ‘Knowing God through Old Testament prayers‘. Learning more about the God of heaven and earth, the God of the space and time, through the prayers of his faithful people and receiving the love and grace that is now ours in Christ Jesus.

Beginning with Abraham’s encounter with God at Mamre in Genesis 18:16-33. The talk is in two parts, the first setting the scene beginning to explore the text and further developed in the second. Here we learn that as prayer appeals to God’s character so we can discover boldness when we approach him with humility.
