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.
