starting a new series on prayer!
i am starting a series on prayer. i find in the normal christian life prayer seems to be a bit mysterious and intimidating to a lot of people. though i am by no means an expert on prayer, i have devoted the past 3 years to being a full time intercessory missionary (that means someone who in devoted to growing in prayer and growing a community in prayer as a full time vocation and lives off missionary support) and the past 14 years purposefully learning and challenging myself to grow in a life of prayer.
i asked on our facebook page what areas of your prayer life you would like to be encouraged in and there were great responses. i also already had a few areas on my heart i wanted to share with you. hopefully this will be a very encouraging series for you and all this talking about prayer will encourage all of us to really pray!
i have written a couple posts devoted to growing in prayer in the past and i encourage you to check them out if you haven't read them yet.
why do we pray?
a heart that is alive
more than just a good ole "Lord, bless them."
it counts big time
how to grow in a life of prayer
even them? you have got to be kidding me.
i also would love you to share in the comments below some questions or hurdles you have faced in your own prayer life. hopefully we can dig into an area that will encourage you as we take this journey together in learning how to pray.
