If you want to become a praying person, the natural place to begin is the Bible. In six sessions, you will read about six men and women in Scripture to learn from them about being a person of prayer, and explore connections between what you find in Scripture and your own life. The goal is to grow in a prayerful relationship with God, through Christ, in the Holy Spirit. Sessions take about one hour and twenty minutes and include everything you need: Bible text, questions for discussion and application, background notes, and insights and quotes from Church fathers and saints.
