Lord teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples’  

(Luke 11v1)

At a recent Worship Think Tank meeting at The Square where we were talking about prayer I was reminded of these words from the disciples ‘Lord teach us to pray’.

In the last Contact I mentioned that those who became world class soloists practiced their instruments for some 10,000 hours. I wonder if that is true also of our prayer lives. We might not want to be world class but certainly we should be aiming to be very proficient.  

I believe prayer is central to our faith and we need to both learn to pray and put that experience of prayer into each part of our lives. One way of practicing is to write a prayer diary. Record those things which you pray for and then look back and see how much God has answered those prayers.

You might want to become part of a prayer chain where prayers are sent around a group of people.   Or form a prayer group so that you meet with others to pray for and with each other.

‘Lord teach us to pray’.   May we continue to learn and grow as we offer prayer for one another.

Grace and peace.  Neil Drayton
