Chapter 4 Highlights

"Secret Prayer"

Do you like secrets? We all do. Children like to tell secrets to one another. Movie makers, book authors, and internet bloggers use secrets to captivate us to watch/listen to their media.

This chapter talks about the challenge that many Christians have - we know we should develop a personal relationship with God through prayer... but we seldom do.

After highlighting the Lord's Prayer (see Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2-4) we are given 12 practical ways to make prayer part of our lives as Disciples of Jesus Christ.

  1. Pray every morning in a solitary place
  2. Kneel if possible
  3. Pray out loud
  4. Pray earnestly
  5. Pray persistently
  6. Pray in faith
  7. Pray for purity of soul
  8. Pray for the Holy Spirit
  9. Pray for others
  10. Take time to pray
  11. Work out your prayers
  12. Pray even when you don't feel like it
