Do you yearn for a consistent prayer life? Do you struggle with distraction when praying alone, timidity when praying with others, or knowing where to start in either setting?
Bestselling writer and beloved speaker Chrystal Evans Hurst knows both the freedom and blessing of establishing and growing a lively prayer life and how difficult it can be when prayer itself feels foreign to our daily lives.
This video-based Bible study (DVD/video streaming sold separately), is a well-organized and welcoming guide to having meaningful conversations with God. In it, Chrystal:
Teaches the basic tenets of prayer practice.
Establishes a realistic and achievable pattern of prayer that will have lasting effect.
Explains the four postures of prayer—supported by Scripture—that increase our communication and relationship with God.
This study includes daily prayer practices, space to journal about your prayers and what you’re hearing from God, as well as weekly challenges to keep you and your group active and attentive in renewed prayer.
The Bible tells us that prayer is essential for an intimate and thriving relationship with God, and it’s well worth the time and effort it deserves.
Introduction to Types of Prayer and Practice
Prayers of Thanksgiving
Prayers of Repentance
Prayers of Request
Prayers of Yielding
Each week I was delighted by the scripture references that were intertwined with the teaching. Using God’s Word to instruct us about who He is and why we should pray was so very helpful in cementing the concepts into my heart, mind & habits.
I have participated in many studies on prayer over the last few years and I can say unequivocally that this is one of the best.
This is the 4th OBS (Online Bible Study) that I have participated in through Faithgateway. I meet via Zoom each week with a small group of ladies from all across the country. I can honestly say that I have seen each of these women grow in their faith and willingness to share it with others.
This Tuesday night group will pursue Advent on an individual basis & regroup in January. Be blessed, dear ones, be blessed.
Thanks so much for sharing this discussion as well as the resources. Prayer remains one of our best tools to build upon our relationship with God as well as our faith. Blessings to you Barbara.
