Prayer is something everyone knows is important and also likely feels they could be better at. But how do we grow in prayer? The best way is to just do it. Be in constant communion with Jesus. Another way is to learn from others. Below are Bible studies from trusted teachers like Max Lucado, Sandy Richter, Chrystal Evans Hurst, and Anne Graham Lotz.
Psalms is eight-session video-based study with Sandra Richter helping participants experience Israel’s hymnbook with fresh connections to contemporary worship and devotional practices. Indulge in the biblical study of the Psalms from a scholar and former pastor. Letting Sandra do the “heavy lifting” of research and translation allows you to engage the Bible in a deeply sensitive way, answering the ever-present question, “so what does this have to do with me today?”
The 28-Day Prayer Journey is a five-session study from Chrystal Evans Hurst. In it, Chrystal teaches groups the basic tenets of prayer practice and establishes a realistic and doable pattern of prayer to be applied to our daily life for 28 days with lasting effect. She dives deep into four postures of prayers that increase our communication and relationship with God. The study includes daily prayer practices, space to journal about your prayers and what you are hearing from God, as well as challenges each week to keep yourself from distraction and give prayer the time it deserves.
The Daniel Prayer is a six-session video Bible study from Anne Graham Lotz. Anne looks at the life of Daniel and unpacks the prayer he prayed in Daniel 9. She shows how this type of prayer is one born deep within the soul, erupting through your heart and pouring out on your lips as the Spirit of God infuses the words with spiritual electricity. It is not the everyday now-I-lay-me-down-to-sleep kind of prayer, this is a prayer birthed under pressure. A prayer in which the pray-ers return to the cross and repent of sin. A prayer that changes hearts and nations–even in our world today.
In this four-session video-based study, bestselling author Max Lucado reveals his struggles with prayer and how he discovered the simple tool everyone has been given to have a conversation with God. He shows you how to let go of uncertainties, trust that God hears you, and embrace a prayer life that brings peace and rest.
