The Prayerful Disciple

I think we’ve all had questions about prayer: when should I do it, what’s appropriate, what should I say? For the disciple of Christ, prayer is a necessity that shouldn’t be taken for granted; yet, on a personal note, I know I so often do. There’s plenty of information out there to help guide you in your prayer life, from the Prayer of Jabez to the Book of Common Prayer.

Today, we’d like to highlight Delve Into Jesus, a site that is devoted to providing accurate information about Jesus on the internet.

Here’s a short introduction to prayer to help you get started, but after you’ve prayed do you know how God might answer you? Delve Into Jesus has an article detailing some of the ways in which the author has seen God respond to his prayers called God’s Response To Prayer Requests. And if you want to have someone pray for you, there is an area to post your own prayer requests.

If you’re wondering whom you might pray for, Arab World Ministries publishes a prayer calendar that is specific to their ministry each month. This is a fantastic resource that can help build the discipline of prayer for global missions into your quiet times.

And if you’re at a loss as to what or how to pray, pray as Jesus did. From Matthew 6:9-13

“This, then, is how you should pray:
‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.”
