Prayer Is ...


Christians across the centuries have written about prayer. Consider these six simple – yet profound – definitions of prayer:

Prayer is a silent surrendering of everything to God.

– Soren Kierkegaard

Prayer is first of all listening to God.

– Henri Nouwen

Prayer is keeping company with God.

– Clement of Alexandria

Prayer is my declaration of dependence on God.

– John Maxwell

Prayer is the answer to every problem there is.

– Oswald Chambers

Prayer is the supreme way to be workers together with God.

– Wesley Duewel


Spend some time thinking about what prayer is to you and in your life:

** How do you define prayer? Why do you define it that way?

** How does the way you define prayer affect how you pray?

** In light of the quotes above, do you need to re-think how you look at prayer? Do you need to re-think how you pray?

Put your thoughts into practice ... and pray!
