Prayer


Introduction

In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Paul tells us to pray without ceasing. Unfortunately, he didn't give us instructions on how to pray at all, let alone how to pray without ceasing.

Prayer is fundamental to Christian living and yet many Christians are uncomfortable with prayer and unsure of just what to do or how to pray. If you are one of these, then these pages are for you!
