"The world is full of so-called prayer warriors who are prayer-ignorant. They're full of formulas and programs and advice, peddling techniques for getting what you want from God. Don't fall for that nonsense. This is your Father you are dealing with, and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply. Like this: Our Father in heaven, Reveal who you are."

We believe that prayer is a natural part of your personal relationship with Jesus. It does not require specific words or a formula for being effective. As Jesus says in the passage above, it is simply a conversation between you and your heavenly daddy. We use the outline Jesus provided as a resource for those learning how to talk with God. We encourage you to start here, but quickly move to your own, natural way of communicating with God. Avoid robotic, repetitive prayer. Talk with your father!
