When You Pray
Jan 02 2022 • Cedrick Baker, Greg Boyd, Tara Beth Leach
Jesus taught that prayer was essential to our life with God, and the very heart of how we move through the world. He said to his disciples “When you pray…do these things.” Jesus didn’t say “If you pray…” or “On those occasions you happen to think about prayer…” He wanted his followers to know that the practice of prayer is indispensable, not a nice add-on. In this series, we will explore how we can weave prayer into all aspects of our lives, and how it helps us transform the world around us!
