Praying the Bible
Praying can be difficult, boring and downright frustrating. The reasons are many, but there are a few common denominators with us all. First, there is the spiritual battle of prayer. Second, we are human and self-centered. Finally we often make prayer too complicated. Since prayer is primarily communion with the Living God, it has to be less complicated than we make it. God wants to be known and be heard.
Praying through the Scriptures has become a way of praying for me that has assisted my walk with Christ and has kept me energized to continually pray. Don Whitney, who wrote Praying the Bible, has released several five minute videos to show how this spiritual discipline can be applied in our everyday lives.

Hope to see you Sunday as we look into Praying as Jesus Prayed.
In his Grace,
