Are You Overthinking Prayer?

20:50 – 

Have you been tempted to reduce prayer to a series of formulaic rituals? Have you felt “less than” when it comes to prayer, comparing yourself to champion pray-ers at your church or small group? Did you buy four prayer journals only to write a paragraph in each before throwing them under your bed? You may be overthinking your prayer life. Our panel has tried and failed at nearly every method of pumped-up prayer. Learn from their experience and maybe get a few freeing ideas around prayer in the process.

Prayer in Real Life

Guests: Paul E. Miller,

19:35 – 

Paul E. Miller wrote A Praying Life in part as a way to organize and energize his own prayer life, but the book is fast becoming a Christian classic. Infused with practical examples and plenty of acknowledgement of “prayer failures,” Paul takes the mystery out of prayer, telling us to “come messy” and relate to God in the routines of life. Want your relationship with God to be intimate, conversational and transformational? Paul shows us how to get started.
