I DON'T KNOW HOW WEEK 1 - Oct. 13/14 (Jason Anderson)

Many of us grew up going to church, but that doesn’t mean we really know how to pray. We may know some of the basics, but that doesn’t mean our prayer life is good. We may not even be sure what a good prayer life looks like. It’s not often that someone says, “My prayer life is awesome!” Yet, I think we’d all like to experience what the Bible tells us comes through prayer, things like peace, God’s grace, and less anxiety. What does our prayer life need to include if we’re going to experience all that God offers?



Exodus 14

Exodus 17:1-7

Mark 4:35-41

SCRIPTURE Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus. PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7

When you pray, don’t babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating words again and again. Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him! Pray like this: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. MATTHEW 6:7-10

O Lord, how long will you forget me? Forever? How long will you look the other way? How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul, with sorrow in my heart every day? PSALM 13:1

I pray to you, O Lord, my rock. Do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you are silent, I might as well give up and die. PSALM 28:1

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. EPHESIANS 3:20
