Prayer Dare Introduction
Journey through the Gospel of Luke: 30-days of meditations on the life of Jesus. When developing a habit of prayer, it is helpful to have a plan to fall back on. This prayer dare provides a plan that guides you through the Gospel of Luke. The stories of the Gospels can provide a great springboard for our prayer. In it, you will follow the narrative of the Gospel tracing the life of Jesus from his birth to his death and resurrection.
