How do we meet with God?

Prayer is the center-point of life with God. It should be woven into the fabric of our morning routine, our weekly schedule. We should make time for prayer every single day. Even if we have to stay up all night. It is here where we get to enjoy the Father’s company. Prayer is our opportunity to interact with the Creator God and participate in his work of bringing redemption to earth. This practice will explore areas of prayer like contemplation, intercession, lament, unanswered prayer, imaginative prayer, and listening prayer.

Prayer Cards

These prayer cards are designed to help us remain consistent with our prayers and keep track of the ways that God has responded to our requests. Download these prayer cards or create your own as you work through this practice.


Practice

Follow along with each part of this practice. We recommend you work through it with your community, a small group triad, a weekly meal with friends or neighbors, your roommates, whatever works. Get a group of people, set a time each week to share a meal, then talk and pray for about an hour. Transformation happens in community. 

1

The Basics & Lord’s Prayer

For most of us, prayer is a weak point in our apprenticeship to Jesus. Let's begin by creating a rhythm of daily prayer.

2

Contemplative Prayer & Examen

Prayer is about being in active relationship with a Person which includes all kinds of habits of communication.

3

Intercessory Prayer & Prayer Cards

This form of prayer finds its home in our desire to see God radically change lives and circumstances around us.

4

Unanswered Prayer & Lament Psalms

If we are honest, prayer can be a frustrating experience when we feel that they go unanswered.

5

Singing Prayer

Singing is one of the most intimate forms of prayer. Sung prayer changes us and moves the hand of God.

7

Listening Prayer

In listening prayer we ask the question: "What is it like to actually hear from God?"

 

Recommended Reading

Follow along with the recommended reading. We want to continually expand our minds and understanding of the way of Jesus. God wants us to love him not only with our hearts, souls, and strength, but with our minds as well.
