Practicing the Way of Prayer

When we first learn to pray, there is often a progression of layers or steps by which we go deeper with God through the practice of prayer. We first learn to talk to God, then to talk with God, then to listen to God, and eventually to be with God. During this sermon series, we will use Practicing the Way’s prayer guide as a backdrop for exploring these four steps or layers— not as a means to learn how to pray more— but as a means of practicing prayer as a way of life with Jesus. By the power of Christ’s Holy Spirit, may prayer become a practice by which we become intentionally united with God, in order to become more like Jesus and in order to partner with God’s work in the world.
