Baptists Preaching is a column from the Baptist Standard. It is not an effort to advance any one theology or style but to present what a collection of Baptists considers a word from God. Likewise, Baptists Preaching offers a repository of Baptist preaching for future study and research.

Dr. Nora Lozano: Thankful for Praying Communities (Romans 8:26-27)
Dr. Nora Lozano, a professor of theological studies at Baptist University of the Américas and executive director and co-founder of the Christian Latina Leadership Institute housed at Baptist University of the Américas in San Antonio, Texas, recalled the significance of aunts and grandmothers who prayed for her in the past and the many communities who surround her in prayer now. These prayers are an example of how the Holy Spirit prays for us when we don’t know what to pray. The audio of this sermon is available here.
Dr. Lozano was born in Mexico and holds a bachelor of arts degree in social communication from Universidad Regiomontana in Monterrey, Mexico, a master of divinity degree from Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary (now Palmer Theological Seminary) in Philadelphia, and a master of philosophy degree and doctorate from Drew University in Madison, New Jersey.
She is part of the Baptist World Alliance Commission on Doctrine and Christian Unity and is a frequent writer.
This sermon was delivered on November 23, 2014 during the morning worship service of Woodland Baptist Church in San Antonio, Texas.
