Praying with Paul
Just as the human body cannot survive without breathing, the spiritual life cannot survive without praying. Through prayer, we commune with God Almighty through Jesus Christ. Despite its essentiality, many find prayer difficult. Throughout the centuries, Christians have learned to pray by praying the Scriptures—consulting with the Psalms and the Lord’s Prayer. But in addition to these deep wells, we have the treasure of the Apostle Paul’s writing, which overflows in an abundance of prayers.

Our D.I.G. class in September and October focuses on D.A. Carson’s book, Praying with Paul: A Call to Spiritual Reformation. Carson says that God doesn’t demand hectic church programs and frenetic schedules; He only wants His people to know Him more intimately. The Apostle Paul experienced this closeness with God, and we can do the same by following his example. He shows us that prayer is the breath that sustains our spiritual life. This book calls believers to reject superficiality and revolutionize our lives by embracing a Spirit-guided approach to an intimate relationship with God. Order now at our BookCenter.

Join us for D.I.G. as we seek to deepen our prayer life with Paul’s guidance. Childcare is available for children ages six months and older.

Carson shows how the apostle Paul kept eternal values at the center of prayer… [This book] is a manifesto for profound, other-centered, God-guided praying. Such prayer is not caught up in the tyranny of the urgent but the urgency of the eternal. – Christianity Today
