What we believe about God determines the way we pray. This week, we’re talking to a Bible teacher about beliefs that might be holding us back from a fruitful prayer life. We’re also switching it up on our solo episode with a little Q&A about whether or not it’s possible to pray (and receive) wrong prayers.

Ep. 65: Can I pray wrong?
Today, we’re taking a new approach to the solo episodes for the podcast. We’ve done tons of how to’s to practically help prayer happen in your life but now we want to start tackling some questions you might wrestle with about prayer.
So today we’re going to start with asking if we can pray wrong prayers. And if so, does God ever give us what we want even if it’s wrong? And if so, how do we have any confidence coming to God if we fear messing up?
