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.


Teach Us to Pray
“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.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for working all things together for the good of those who love you and are called according to your purpose (Romans 8:28). Give us grace today to receive your love and to share it with our neighbors (Matthew 22:39). In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.

Let’s also pray for:

  • The fall launch of classes and groups at Wooddale (1 Peter 3:15).
  • Students and school staff to be transformed by Jesus this year (Romans 12:2).
  • People stuck in hurts, habits and hang-ups to find hope and freedom (Galatians 5:1).
  • Local and global partners to make an impact here, near and far.

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?
