Do you pray?
Really, do you pray? How often? How effective do your prayers seem to be?
Do you question whether your prayer life is all it should be? Do you ever wonder if God still answers when people pray? Do you worry that you don’t truly understand what prayer really is?
If you’ve asked yourself these questions, you are not alone. Almost all of us have questioned at some time what prayer really is and how–or if–it really works.
In this study we will discover the answers to these questions as we examine what Scripture teaches about prayer and consider how to apply those truths to our own lives.
We also will explore the connection between prayer and pleasing God. A. W. Tozer, a man known for the vitality of his prayer life, once wrote, “What the praying man does is to bring his will into line with the will of God so God can do what He has all along been willing to do.”
For the next six weeks we will learn how to bring our will in line with the will of God. We hope that by the end of this study your prayer life will be more exciting and vibrant than ever before.
