A 3-Day Study to help you have deeper and more frequent conversations with your Heavenly Father

"What things have you learned about prayer that feel like barriers to your prayer life?"

In this devotional we will learn a key tool to having deeper and more frequent conversations with our heavenly father

Quick Look:

I’ve spent a significant part of my life as a Christ-follower. In my late teens and early 20’s, I slipped away for a bit but quickly came back to Christ when my circumstances became less than I knew God’s best was for me.

In all those years, I had been taught many things about prayer. In addition, I was raised by my father who was a strong intercessor with a passion for prayer. It was never a shock to wake up in the early hours of the morning and find my father sitting in the chair praying before he headed off to work. This was his posture in the morning and before he went to bed at night. I was certain to be a natural prayer warrior, yet in my early 30’s, I was confronted with a painful reality: I didn’t know how to pray.

(At least not the right way.)

Based on all the things I had learned about prayer along the way, it seemed that I had been doing everything wrong.

Pray on your knees; don’t stand up.

Pray in this order; say this first.

Close your eyes; keep your eyes open.

Put your head down; hold it up.

Start the prayer like this; end the prayer like that.

Eventually, I found myself wanting to pray but feeling like I didn’t know how to.
