Prayer Challenge Twenty-Two

Devotional: “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” ~ Ephesians 5:1-2, ESV.

Challenge: Prayer Models… When we pray we all have our own style and form. We bring our own experience into our conversations with God, but we should never stop there. Just as a new Christian changes his or her life through the Holy Spirit, so we need to allow God to change us in our prayer lives. Carson writes, “Most of us can improve our praying by carefully, thoughtfully listening to others pray.” If we engage fellow Believers in corporate prayer we can learn from them, and at the same time teach them. When you pray with your prayer partner or Missional Community are you listening to “how” they pray as much as “what” they say?
