Prayer

Create a Lifestyle of Prayer 

"Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed." Mark 1:35

Prayer is most effective when it isn't something we do every now and then, but when it's a lifestyle we cultivate.  To understand how to have a lifestyle of prayer, we can look at the example Jesus gave during His life on earth.

HAVE A CERTAIN TIME
Jesus got up early in the morning to spend time with His Heavenly Father.  Make a daily appointment with God - whether it's first thing in the morning, at lunch, or in the evening - and faithfully keep it.

HAVE A CERTAIN PLACE
Jesus had a specific place He went to pray.  Having a designated place to pray helps us remove distractions and frees us to worship and pray out loud.

HAVE A CERTAIN PLAN
When Jesus taught His disciples how to pray, He gave them a prayer outline.  We call it "The Lord's Prayer."  This outline, along with several other tools, is available in a "Pray First" guide available at the Info Center in our lobby.  As we pray every day, our plans for our prayer time can vary, maybe including worship music, Bible reading, and quiet time to listen to God.  It doesn't always have to look the same; it just helps when we have a plan for connecting regularly with God.

Next Steps

Prayer Small Groups
Joining a prayer small group will help you to learn more about prayer and form  a lifestyle of prayer in your own life. These small groups are a great way to connect with others and see God work through prayer. Whether you are just learning to pray or are seeking prayer ministry, we encourage you to checkout our prayer small groups. 
Sunday Service Prayer
If you are feeling called to make a difference through prayer, we have a prayer team that meets every Sunday to pray over the service. This team prays over the attendees of the service and those who are leading. To learn more about our prayer team, be sure to attend a Victory Growth Track.
