Sometimes prayer can feel like a “spiritual transaction” - we exchange some time and intimacy with God so that He will answer the “ask” in our prayer, whatever that may be. Viewing prayer in this manner is far from the way Jesus viewed prayer and prayed - openly, with vulnerability, and with awareness that God already loved and cared for him. Beginning our “How to Pray” series, this message seeks to explore the foundation and purpose of prayer by taking a look at the way Jesus prayed.
Prayer, in terms of its necessity to our journey with God, has always been deemed an important priority. But yet, when it comes to our experiences with prayer, many of us find it challenging, unfulfilling, and sometimes even a burden. Our hope with our "How to Pray" series is to address the challenging, fundamental questions that surround prayer and to encourage you to take the next step towards a richer prayer experience and relationship with God.
