“I know why I should pray, but sometimes I just don’t know how to pray.”
Have you ever said these words to yourself? I know I have. Prayer doesn't have to be complicated, so we don’t have to overthink it. It’s an intimate conversation between you and God. And there is no single right way to do it. But sometimes trying a new approach to prayer can reinvigorate your prayer life. That’s why we’ve created a collection of ideas, strategies, and methods to help bring new life to your practice of prayer.
We often think of prayer as something we do. We pray to God. However, God is actually the one who initiates prayer. He acts first by placing the desire to pray on our hearts. When we pray, we’re responding to God’s invitation and call.
Wherever you are today, and whatever obstacle you are facing, God is reaching out to you and inviting you to pray. We hope the six ways to pray found in this ebook will help you faithfully respond to God’s call.
Together, “Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need” (Hebrew 4:16).
