We long to be a church growing in our prayerful dependence on Jesus.
We also know that it can be hard for people to know where to start when praying. What should we pray for? How long should we pray? Does prayer even work?
We want to help!
Simply Start Praying is a resource to help you do just that. There are three parts to Simply Start Praying.
Firstly, a devotional booklet that seeks to briefly answer 30 common questions about prayer. Think of it as a kick starter to your prayer life that you can use for 30 days. Two minutes of your day to read and pray a simple prayer in response.
This can help you build a habit in a very simple and tangible way.
Secondly, a guide to using the Prayer Mate app. There are a number of good apps out there that can assist you praying in all kinds of ways. We’ve set up Prayer Mate with some simple instructions to help you get started and make the most of it. It’s a great took to track topics you’d like to pray for. It also allows you to subscribe to various feeds from other ministry and mission organisations who will update you with short prayer requests.
Thirdly, we’ve set up our own feed with pre-written prayers that you can use to grow the depth and breadth or your prayer life.
So download a copy and take a look. Today is a great day to simply start praying!
As well as the Simply Start Praying resource, we want to highlight a number of books that are worthwhile reading for yourself.
