This 3-part Prayer Bible study is designed to help students understand the power of prayer.
Here is how the Prayer Bible Study and Small Groups Break Down:
PART 1: HOW TO PRAY
How do we pray like Jesus? The Lord’s Prayer offers the solution, but it’s crucial to truly grapple with the principles behind the passage, as it’s likely one of the most memorized sections in Scripture. The power of this prayer is not the words themselves. Rather, it’s the heart behind them. Observing three key sections, let’s dissect the Lord’s Prayer as a model for our daily conversations with God.
Scripture: Matthew 6:9-13
PART 2: WAYS TO PRAY
There are dozens of ways to pray, so it’s pivotal that you find the practice that works best for you. “Wait, you’re telling me there is more than one way to pray?” Of course! Prayer is defined as consistent communication with our Creator. Just like there are dozens of communication styles, there are dozens of prayer methods. Today, we will investigate four practical ways to pray, then explore three tips to help us engage deeper.
Scripture: Ephesians 6:18-19; Hebrews 4:16
PART 3: WHY WE PRAY
In life, to get the right outcome, we need to know our ultimate goal. The same is true for our prayer lives. We must approach God intentionally to get as much out of it as possible. When studying dozens of popular prayers in the Bible, a theme emerges. God has three goals in mind for you when you pray. What are they? Let’s conclude our journey by studying another popular prayer from the pages of Scripture—Psalm 46.
Scripture: Psalm 46: 7-11; Psalm 91:9-10
