"Teach Us To Pray" Toolkit
Discover how to pray more boldly, experience more intimacy in God’s presence, and yield more fully to His will.
The disciples only ever asked Jesus to teach them one thing: how to pray.
Prayer was a central part of the disciples’ Jewish traditions, yet they realized that Jesus’ authority and power were grounded in an uncommon habit of prayer.
“Teach Us To Pray” takes the prayer Jesus modeled for his disciples, The Lord’s Prayer, and reveals how it can help us ask God for what we need more boldly, experience more intimacy in His presence, and yield more fully to His will.
We’ve collected some things to help you take this journey through “Teach us to Pray” — and beyond. The toolkit is help and wisdom you can share with everyone in your circles — groups, serving teams, friends, co-workers, classmates, and neighbors!
