4 Ideas That Will Help You Know Jesus Deeply Through Prayer | Leadership Foundations

October 13, 2021

20 Minutes

To grow as a Christian, much less a leader, prayer has got to be something we learn to progress in.

3 Presuppositions about Prayer:

  1. A major purpose of Prayer is about managing God’s power.
  2. The other major purpose is growing relationally closer to Jesus.
  3. Without prayer, you’ll have much anxiety because prayer is about rearranging YOU in God’s presence.

4 Ideas that will help you know Jesus deeply through prayer:

  1. Importunity demonstrates faith (sometimes in a way that quick answers don’t).
  2. Prayer is where I surrender to God’s will.
  3. Connecting prayer to God’s word is a double blessing.
  4. Expect to hear from God (although you won’t always), knowing you may be wrong.

  • A Praying Life by Paul Miller
  • Intercessory Prayer by Dutch Sheets
  • Prayer by Timothy Keller
