The Disciple’s Prayer
Abbotsford – Jan 14, Matthew 6:9-10
- What do you find hard about praying? What kinds of things normally stop us from praying?
- What sort of practices have you put into place in your life to help you pray? What would you counsel someone to do to improve their commitment to prayer?
- Do we think of God more as our loving Father or the great God in the heavens – as far off and transcendent or as near and immanent? What are the dangers of emphasizing one of these aspects of God over the other? Which do you think we are more prone to emphasize today? Why?
