Teach us to pray??

“One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, ‘Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.’” (Luke 11:1 NIV)

Did you ever wonder about that? Why did the disciple say “TEACH us“? Doesn’t prayer come naturally, especially to disciples… especially during a crisis?

Emergency praying may come naturally, but praying effectively is something we’re taught.

That’s why our church has hosted a Prayer Enrichment Workshop for the past 21 years – and we’ll do another one on September 11-13, 2015 with several speakers.PewBroc2015 Cover
