According to Luke, one day one of Jesus’ disciples asked Jesus to teach them to pray. The disciple had observed Jesus was a person of deep prayer. You read that throughout the gospels. Thanks to the question, we have the Lord’s Prayer as a model prayer. Prayer, some say, is the act of being with God.
Another will say, prayer is defined as a conversation with God. Both were true for Jesus.
During Lent, as Christians turn a bit inward, it is a good time to once again consider the life of prayer that is so essential in the life of a disciple. Here are the topics by the week:
March 10: What is Prayer? What do we learn from the prayer life of Jesus? What do we learn from the prayer life of other Christians, Jews, and Muslims?
March 17: “The Lord’s Prayer”- Part 1 What does the Lord’s Prayer have to teach us?
March 24: “The Lord’s Prayer”- Part 2
March 31: Learning to pray according to your Spiritual Type- a look at what the Spiritual Typology of Corrine Ware has to teach us about prayer. We will consider 4 primary ways people connect to God through prayer. And how people grow in prayer.
