Our Best Resources on Prayer

1. Why do Christians pray? [article]

There’s a reason Christians take prayer so seriously. Do you have trouble praying or wonder why we pray at all? Learn why prayer is so important and how it strengthens our faith.

2. Learning how to pray like Jesus [article]

Jesus’ close friends were surrounded with ritualistic examples of prayer, and He was so passionate about helping them understand what prayer should be that He gave them (and us) a model for what to do. 

3. Does posture matter when you pray? [article]

Posture matters in every conversation. It conveys emotions our words cannot. This is true in our conversations with each other and our conversations with God. 

4. Amen: A 27-Day Prayer Guide [study]

In this 27-day prayer guide, you’ll find questions and verses to help you celebrate who God is, anticipate what He’s going to do in your life, and ask Him for help in all areas of your life.

5. Why Christians pray together, not just in private [article]

Praying out loud, in front of other people isn’t something we need to be afraid of or shy away from. But whenever there are other people involved, there will always be the temptation to show off. Knowing this, Jesus gave us some important guidelines to keep in mind.

6. The hidden story of the brain-dead man who woke up [story]

A pastor and grieving son shared a waiting room prayer. Eight years later, they came face to face in the presence of the miracle.

7. Do you pray to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit? [article]

In the Bible, there is one God who reveals Himself in three persons: God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. So when we pray to God, does it matter who we pray to?
