We are not always sure if our prayers are life-giving or not, yet there is a way to know that our prayers are life-giving.

Warfare Prayer

Sometimes when we ask why pray we are not recognizing that the real battle is not between people but the unseen battle in the spiritual realm.

Craving God’s Voice in God’s Word

January 9, 2022 • Ross Sawyers • Psalm 1

Sometimes we struggle in knowing why or how to pray, and we find that the struggle diminishes the more we are inside the Word of God.

Pray with open eyes, for open doors, openly investing in others

January 2, 2022 • Eric Estes • Colossians 4:2–6, 1 Corinthians 16:8–9, Luke 18:1, Mark 4:11

God tells us that we should pray with open eyes, for open doors, intentionally investing in outsiders. “Prayer is the only entryway into genuine self-knowledge. It is also the main way we experience deep change—the reordering of our loves. Prayer is how God gives us so many of the unimaginable things he has for us. Indeed, prayer makes it safe for God to give us many of the things we most desire. It is the way we know God, the way we finally treat God as God. Prayer is simply the key to everything we need to do and be in life.” – Tim Keller
