Powerful Prayers of the Bible

  • Apr 2021 Issue
Monthly Issues

If I am honest, I have an on-again, off-again relationship with prayer. I know prayer is something I need to do and most of the time it is something I want to do. But other times I wonder if it is working, or if I am even doing it right. I began looking at the prayers in the Bible and what I discovered was fascinating. I want to share some of that with you in this study on Powerful Prayers of the Bible. Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard said, “Prayer does not change God, but it changes him who prays.” It is my hope that prayer will change you too. Through this month’s study, we will:

  • Examine the prayers of Jesus, kings, prophets, and Christ’s followers
  • Learn patterns of prayer based on biblical examples
  • Deepen our prayer lives by focusing on aspects of how to pray
