Jesus gave His prayer life priority. So it gave Him radiance, power, and love. Maybe we should pray too? Here's how.

Also, we've written a short blog post about how to pray the Bible here.

Outline:

  • Here's our big goal: Live life with God, and share it with others.
  • Prayer is our starting place.
    • Jesus' own prayer life was powerful, transformative, and joyous.
    • Jesus fought to make time to pray, regularly hiding from other people to find time with God.
