Are you satisfied with your prayer life?
If you’re like most Christians, the answer is no.
Most Christians would say their prayer life is ineffective, inconsistent, unsatisfying, and basically a list of requests they make of God, but lacks true communication and communion.
Prayer has always been one of the Christian disciplines I’ve struggled with most.
I have a great propensity to over-complicate very simple things, and prayer is definitely an area of my life I’ve made more complicated than I should have.
I take great comfort in my struggle with prayer, because as we read the gospels we see that even the disciples struggled in this very important area of their faith.
In Luke 11 the disciples came to Jesus and said, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.”
Jesus’ response to them wasn’t to preach a 5-hour sermon on prayer with all it’s nuances. Jesus simply gave them a formula to follow.
It’s called The Lord’s Prayer, but what it really should be called is, “The Disciples Prayer”, because this isn’t a prayer Jesus actually prayed. The Lord’s Prayer is really a prayer formula that Jesus gave His disciples.
In fact, The Lord’s Prayer isn’t a rote prayer, it is a mini-course in how to pray!
When this revelation hit home for me, it revolutionized how I prayed. Suddenly the concept of prayer, how I should pray, and what I should pray for became so simple.
To help make it even easier, I put together a simple journal called “Pray Through the Lord’s Prayer” with sections for each part of The Lord’s Prayer. This kept me organized and helped me not to forget the people for whom I had promised to pray.
Earlier this year I held a short study based on this journal that is available in my store.
But I have great news!
I am working on a Bible study “7 Days to a Better Prayer Life” that will be available at any time!
7 Days to a Better Prayer Life Bible Study
In the 7 Days to a Better Prayer Life Bible study you will receive:
- The Pray Through the Lord’s Prayer Workbook with additional worksheets
- Access to a private Facebook Group where you can discuss the study and share prayer needs
- 7 Video lessons that expound on each area of The Lord’s Prayer
This Bible Study will be available for personal study or for group studies!
But what’s even more exciting is that I will be doing this study live from October 3-9! This means that I’ll be popping into the private Facebook group via live video each day for those 7 days for about 5 minutes or so to talk about our lesson for the day and answer any questions you may have about the Bible study!
If you would like to join me for the 7 Days to a Better Prayer Life Bible study October 3-9, or would like more information about how to lead a 7 Days to a Better Prayer Life Bible study, you can sign up here.
