We were given a model and a map of how to pray by the Son of God himself, Jesus. Give these steps a try if you want to talk to God for the first time or are looking for ways to grow in your prayer life.


1. Pray the prayer that Jesus taught his disciples

Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come,
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.


2. P. R. A. Y

Use this simple acronym to help you talk to God:


Breathe deeply and be still in God’s presence.


What’s been good today? Thank God for it.


Ask God to help you and those you care about.


Ask God to help you and those you care about. 


3. Listen to Breakthrough 2023 Sessions & Prayer Guide

In January 2023 at our annual Breakthrough conference we focused on Prayer and our Guest Teacher, Brian Heasley from 24/7 Prayer, presented three powerful messages about prayer. Be sure to check out the Breakthrough page for more resources including links to the main sessions from Breakthrough as well as a 14 day prayer guide.
