How to Pray the Gospel for All of Life

Prayer was always meant to be a conversation with our heavenly Father, our Daddy. If your prayers are cold, formal, self-focused or rare, then seeing prayer as a time you get to talk with Dad will draw you to the source of all life, grace, and love.

This week on the Lifeschool Podcast, we’ll teach you how Jesus’ model for prayer actually leads us to pray the Good News of the gospel over all of life. Prayer is all about experiencing the gospel in relationship with our Father!

Jesus said it pretty plainly, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). Through us having a relationship. And when he taught his disciples how to pray, he led them in relationship to the Father.

In This Episode You’ll Learn:

  • Why Jesus always saw prayer with our Father as a relational practice.
  • The 6 movements or “petitions” of the Lord’s Prayer.
  • Specific (HUGE) gospel connections to each of these 6 movements.
  • How to pray the gospel for all of life and in any situation.
