Pray without ceasing. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:17
“Talking with God like you’d talk with a friend.”
“Communing with the One who loves you more than you love yourself.”
“Listening and resting in the presence of God.”
I’ve heard people describe prayer as all of the above.
But for most of us, prayer is confusing, overwhelming, and even a little scary. For many it’s the one area of our disciple-life where we feel the least confident. A quick Google search on “What is prayer?” yielded over 53 MILLION posts. Certainly this is a question many are asking.
Over the coming weeks we want to share with you what the Bible teaches us about prayer. We’ll be studying the Lord’s Prayer and several other prayers found in Scripture – digging into the treasure chest of God’s Word on this important discipline in our spiritual growth. And we want to help you grow your prayer life. From developing a prayer calendar to establishing a prayer notebook, we’ll be offering practical insight and suggestions for building a solid foundation in your prayer life.
I love to read about Susanna Wesley. Her life and her home were grounded in prayer. As we begin to study prayer here at Scripture Dig, I leave you with these two of her prayers …
In the morning, pray that “Every work I do below, I do it to the Lord.”
In the evening, pray “I give Thee praise, O God, for a well-spent day.”
How would you describe your prayer life?
