What is prayer?

  • Prayer is pouring out our hearts to God in praise, petition, confession of sin, and thanksgiving.
  • It is “the chief exercise of faith” (John Calvin) … the very opposite of self-dependence.

What motivates prayer?

Prayer is motivated by the truth of the Bible…

  • We come to a merciful Father who loves us!
  • We come in Jesus Christ, his only Son, in whom we have full, free, unhindered communion with God, all the time, thanks to his death and resurrection!
  • We come with the help of the Spirit, who unites us with Jesus, as one family, and gives to us faith, hope and love, as we hear God’s word!
