What is the purpose of meeting together in church?  It's for two reasons - to lead people to Christ and to grow our faith strong enough where we will lead people to Christ.  That's why the Church exists.  It's not to make Christians comfortable. Rock Solid faith replicates itself.

Has this ever happened to you?  You are talking on a cell phone, when all of a sudden you realize the person on the other end has been dropped.  You are doing a lot of talking, but nobody is listening.

Do you ever feel that way about God?  Are there times when you are praying, but it doesn't seem like it's getting through?

Luckily, we don't have to use cell phones to talk to God.  There aren't dead spots in His coverage of the world.

In this message, Rod Loy talks about the importance of another building block of strong faith: prayer.
