LUKE 11:1 NIV One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray…”

LUKE 5:16 NIV Jesus would OFTEN slip away and PRAY.


TRUTH:  Prayer is a place of ENCOUNTER!


JOHN 17:26 MSG [Jesus said] You sent me on this mission. I have made your very being known to them — Who you are and what you do — And continue to make it known, so that your love for me might be in them exactly as I am in them."

JOHN 17:23 NLT [Jesus prayed] That you (Father) love them (Us) as much as you (Father) love me (Jesus)." 

ROMANS 8:15 NLT So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.”


CHALLENGE: GROW in prayer. 


I PETER 2:3 NLT Grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.
