“Getting to Know God Through Prayer”

Why don’t people pray more?

  • Not sure they know how to pray
  • Get bored or distracted while trying to pray
  • Think their requests are too small for God
  • Not sure their prayers will make a difference

Prayer is simply communicating with God!

Psalm 5:1-2 “Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. 2 Give heed to the voice of my cry, my King and my God, for to You I will pray.”

How do you pray?

  • Talk to God with gut-level honesty. Matthew 6:5,7
  • Talk to God about everything that matters to you.

Philippians 4:6 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”

  • Talk to God continually.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances…”

  • Talk to God and listen for His response.

John 10:27 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”
