Does prayer really change things? Why doesn’t God always answer my prayers? What’s the point of prayer anyway? Is there a certain way I’m supposed to pray? Do I have to be a Christian for God to hear my prayers?
When God communicates with His children, it isn’t always obvious—certainly not as obvious as our conversations with friends. We won’t receive a text or a phone call. We can’t expect Him to comment on our most recent status update or post. Instead, we are called to meet with Him in prayer.
Over the course of eight sessions, students will discover the importance of communicating with God by taking a closer look at Jesus’ prayers. Throughout the Gospel of Luke, Jesus teaches us how to depend on God through prayer, what it means to pray continually, as well as how prayer can help us gain wisdom, overcome temptation, and surrender our desires to His.
