Learn More about Prayer
Prayer is not a surprise discipline in the life of a Christian, but it is one that many of us struggle with! We know that the Bible tells us that we ought to pray, we are commanded to pray, but many of us often struggle to actually pray. Our hope this month is that we can set aside some concentrated time to think about how to pray, consider why we pray and then accept the invitation of our Heavenly Father to come before him with our prayers.
In the Bible we learn some incredible promises about prayer:
Prayer is foundational to the Christian life (John 15:5; Romans 12:12; Philippians 4:6; 1 Thessalonians 5:1)
God hears us when we pray (1 John 5:14; Psalm 66:19, Psalm 116:1-2)
The Holy Spirit helps us to pray (Romans 8:26)
Jesus intercedes for us (Romans 8:34, Hebrews 7:25)
God draws near to us as we pray (Psalm 145:18, James 4:8)
We invite you to dive in and pray along with us this month! Below you will find a month-long guide to dive into the practice of prayer, leading you through a different type of prayer each week.
