Prayer Guide: Seven Ways to Pray (Free)

Here is a free prayer guide for your youth ministry!

Prayer can be perplexing. When I was young, I would start praying only to find myself day-dreaming about pizza or penguins. I could feel the words seemingly hit the ceiling and bounce right back. I am sure that some of you have been in the same place. Maybe you don’t know what to say, lose your train of thought or get distracted when you try to pray. Whatever the struggle, it’s helpful to look to Scripture for examples of effective prayer.

One of the first things Jesus does in His ministry is teach his disciples how to pray. We should follow His example! We talk about prayer all the time, but rarely take a step back and help our students learn how to pray.

Why did we create this prayer guide?

You can use this resource as a digital eBook or print it out to hand out to your students. It’s an exploration through seven examples of prayer in Scripture. These are not prayer scripts. Rather, they are samples to help us pray in whatever situation we are facing — powerlessness, pain, praise, anxiety, or gratitude. This will give you practical prompts and reflections on Scripture to help you pray through whatever you are experiencing.

When you download this resource, you will receive:

— eBook that gives you scripture, reflections, and prompts on seven prayers in the Bible
— Social media graphics to help you engage your audience throughout the week

The ‘7 Ways to Pray’ prayer guide was created to reinforce our CIRCLES small group series on prayer. This free small group curriculum is designed to help students grow closer to God and each other. Click here to learn more about CIRCLES and subscribe for access.
