Spiritual Formation Prayer Exercises

Jesus’ disciples famously said, “Lord, teach us to pray!”

Prayer is the main mode of connection between God and believer. Yet, it can be the most labored part of our time with the Lord. Even the most mature believers can feel a bit “stale” in their prayer life. Here you’ll find suggestions for entering into a deeper connection with God. If you find yourself in a season of dynamic prayer times and intimate connection with the Lord, you may not be drawn to these activities. If you are looking to try something new in your time with the Lord, you may find something here. 

As you try a prayer exercise, please use the comment box to share a response, a “selfie” of you doing the exercise, an invitation or a word you received from the Lord.


What is God like in our grief?

The “G” word. Who’s uncomfortable?
I’ll say it again… “GRIEF”.

In this prayer exercise, we will read Psalm 30. Using the words of the psalmist as a guide, we can remember our grieving, and see how God has met us in our grief. Get your tissues ready: this may be a difficult, but beautiful, ride.
