Do you ever feel like your prayers are stale? Do you keep repeating yourself with no real enthusiasm? I have struggled with this often.
I have been working on a project for you for a long time and today is the day I finally get to give it to you!
I am so excited to offer you my new prayer guide. It has been years in the making. I started it over a decade ago when the kids were small for my own personal use. But life happened and kids happened and I gradually abandoned the project as my “Quiet Times” became increasingly loud and messy times.
I have recently discovered a renewed interest in this prayer project accompanied by the time to actually pull it all together in a useable format. It has been a game-changer for me in regards to living a prayer-filled life. If it has been so helpful in forming a God-centered perspective in my heart and mind, then I figured it might enhance your spiritual life as well.
In trying to learn a better way to pray, I have taken the Lord’s Prayer model and expanded it by using other Scriptures to add depth to each prayer request.
I have poured countless hours into this project because God has hidden SO MUCH good stuff in his Word. By the time I finished fleshing it out, I had turned the Lord’s Prayer into a 100-page document! Don’t worry! The version I’m giving you has far fewer pages. I plan to publish the extra content as individual posts throughout the month of October.
You can certainly use the prayer guide as a stand-alone assistant to meaningful prayer times. But you also might find it helpful to start a Prayer Journal Notebook so you can keep track of your prayers and God’s answers. Throughout this month, I will also be offering several free printables that you can use in your Prayer Journal. You can just pop everything into a 3-ring binder and you’re all set!

I’m pumped about the journey we will take together as we learn to dig deeper into the prayer Jesus taught us and find out more about what it really means.
In studying the Lord’s Prayer, I have found it interesting that Jesus used the words “us” and “we” instead of “I” and “my”. I believe God wants us to pray in the context of community. Even if we are praying alone in our own homes, we can be a cyber prayer community lifting our praises and requests to the Lord. If you enjoy this prayer series, you may also want to share it with your friends in your local area. Gather a group of friends, Bible study buddies, your family, or a church group to pray together and discuss what you learn.
Above all, just be open to what God wants to teach you about prayer this month. I’d love to hear what you discover as we journey through prayer together.
