Sermon Series: Life 
Text: Ephesians 1:1-15-23; 6:10-20
Preacher: Brent McCrory

Every good relationship has a common factor that enables them to be a good relationship. Similarly, every bad relationship has a common factor, which unfortunately, enables them to be a poor relationship. I suppose this is nothing earth-shattering, after all, people have been studying relationships and how they work for quite some time now. However, what may be surprising is that the common factor for every good relationship is the same as the common factor in every bad relationship. What is this common factor? Communication.

Communication is essential to relationships. Healthy communication leads to healthy relationships. Poor communication, or a lack of it, leads to unhealthy relationships – or no relationship at all. There are a variety of relationships (e.g., boss to employee, friend to friend, parent to child, spouse to spouse), but they all must involve communication.

How does this fit into prayer. In more ways than we likely realize.
