Developing a Passion for Prayer

Back to Growth Plan List

The thought of approaching God in prayer can seem intimidating sometimes. He is Almighty God, the Creator of the Universe, the Alpha and Omega. What do you say to Him? Is He listening? What matters to Him? Thankfully, our Father has given us great instruction about prayer in Scripture, and it is one of the most powerful ways for us to stay connected to Him.

For this Growth Plan, we have put together some of our best content to help you learn and grow in your prayer life. Whether you are beginning your prayer life or simply refreshing it, this series will help.

You will learn what the Bible teaches about communing with God, and you will learn how to develop a deeper, more intimate relationship with Him through prayer.
