Tools to help you pray
Discover how to pray more boldly, experience more intimacy in God’s presence, and yield more fully to His will.
The disciples only ever asked Jesus to teach them one thing: how to pray.
Prayer was a central part of the disciples’ Jewish traditions, yet they realized that Jesus’ authority and power were grounded in an uncommon habit of prayer.
We’ve collected some things to help you develop your own prayer habit. Use these resources to learn to talk to God more boldly, experience more intimacy in His presence, and yield more fully to His will.
