How alive in love are you?

God has a global family of affection He calls a “house of prayer” (Isaiah 56:7). Every believer is a unique “living stone” in the house. Prayer is simply a way we express our love relationship with God that flows out of the house to the community around us.


A first step in growing in prayer is knowing how God wired you and what your unique role is in building his house of prayer. Whether you want to learn to apply spiritual gifts in prayer or struggle to discern God’s voice, the Teach Us to Pray video series will help. Grab a friend, family member, or LifeGroup and dig in together.  


No matter how mature we are as believers, the spiritual battle each day is real and persistent. The good news is that Jesus came to destroy the works of Satan. In the seven-session “Victorious Prayer” training, you’ll learn five prayer power tools to help you live in victory. To learn more or request copies of the booklet, please email


God made each of your kids to be unique. They will relate to God differently depending on things like interests, personality, spiritual gifts and life experiences. Take some time as a family this month to discuss these questions:

  1. What is your favorite way to talk with God?
  2. When is the last time you knew God answered a prayer or was at work in our family?
  3. When it’s hard to pray or hear from God, why do you think that is?
  4. How can our family best support the different ways God made us to pray?

Dear Heavenly Father, we look forward to what you’re going to do in 2023. May we come into greater alignment with you and your ways (Isaiah 55:8-9). Thank you that your Word never comes back void and accomplishes its purposes. May we grow in faith and be used for your glory here, near and far. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.

Let’s also pray for:

  • The Family Resource Initiative and reEngage for marriages (Ephesians 5:22-33).
  • The sermon series on the big story of the Bible (John 1:1-5).
  • Local and global partners to share the hope and help of Jesus (Romans 15:13).
  • Ways to reach out to our friends and neighbors with God’s love (1 John 4:7).


“Teach Us to Pray” is for groups, families, or friends who want to know how God shaped them for prayer and want to overcome common obstacles to a thriving prayer life. In this 6-session interactive experience, you’ll grow together and learn to help others grow in prayer too.

Prayer becomes much more enjoyable and effective when we come alongside others. Ask God to show you who to share this class material with next!
