Growing a consistent prayer life

When it comes to prayer, there are two words that I always think of when I want to describe how I show up in my prayer life:

CONFIDENT & CONSISTENT 

  • I want to pray rooted in my convictions of what I’m praying and not hesitant or doubtful God is actually capable. 
  • I don’t want to be so afraid of whether or not I’m saying the “right” thing because I have an understanding of prayer and the way God designed it.
  • I want to pray with gusto and excitement, not like I end every sentence with a question mark.    
  • I also want a prayer life that doesn’t spike just when trouble hits and takes a back seat when I think I have everything under control. 
  • I want my conversations with the Lord to flow in a sweet rhythm uninterrupted by every bump in my schedule.

Easier said than done right? 

As we’ve created products like our prayer journal to help you spend time with the Lord, we’ve realized that part of what is holding us back in prayer isn’t just having a place to focus our thoughts. We may have just never had a really solid foundation from which we pray. 

We assume we’re supposed to instinctively know how to pray and if we don’t, maybe we’ll never figure it out?

Questions swirl in our minds:

Like why do we pray if God can hear us? And what if He feels distant or doesn’t seem to respond? Are my prayers selfish? Am I saying the wrong thing? I feel like my prayers are so repetitive. How do I actually hear from God? Or learn to pray with others? Or for them? 

All these questions can hold us back from praying confidently and consistently. We say it’s because we’re busy or distracted but if we KNEW and remembered WHO we prayed to, WHAT He was capable of and HOW to pray to Him, I think we’d suddenly find time and space to pray. 

That’s why we created our online course Developing a Fluency of Prayer. We formatted it around the theme of learning a foreign language because truly, it can feel like that when we start. But this is the language of a lifetime and 100% worth becoming fluent in!

We want to give you the tools you need, in a really simple format, to pray confidently and consistently. This isn’t a seminary class on prayer. This isn’t even a history of it. Those things would be great, but our desire is to clear out the obstacles and help you actually pray more. Because it’s in prayer we think you actually learn how to pray. 

To celebrate a year(ish) since the course released, we’re now offering each module as a mini-course. We wanted to break down that final barrier, price, and give you every push to say yes to something that we think could be a major breakthrough in your prayer life. Maybe you’ve got a foundation but struggle with discerning God’s voice. Or maybe you feel confident in hearing God in your life but want to learn how to incorporate Scripture into your prayers or learn how to pray out loud with others.
