Prayer is a crucial way for us to experience Gods grace. Jesus used The Lord's Prayer to teach all disciples about how to communicate with God. Christians also order their lives around their relationships with each other, and these relationships are strengthened through personal and corporate prayer with God. The Lord's Prayer is a template for how to bring our needs, concerns, and challenges to God, who cares for each of us.

"I can think of no more fertile topic for small groups than prayer, and I can think of no group of leaders better equipped to lead that conversation. For these four presenters, prayer is not a lofty abstraction but a necessary conversation. Prayer is less the things we say and much more the air we breathe. This is a resource we will use in our small group ministries."
Shane L. Bishop, Distinguished Evangelist of The UMC (2010); Senior Pastor, Christ Church, Fairview Heights, IL
"Surely Jesus meant for his teaching on prayer to be more than words recited in weekly church services. These words live in us and for us as a pattern to transform our lives."
Carolyn Moore, Pastor, Mosaic UMC, Evans, GA
