True Prayer: A Relationally-Centered Prayer Life

Draw Near and Listen
Remain in Christ and let God's word remain in you. Receive His love.

Bend Low As a Living Sacrifice
Surrender every 'second thing' to gain union with God.

In Every Circumstance Give Thanks
Thank God for the unique opportunity every blessing or trial presents to delight God's heart and reveal Him to others.

May Your Kingdom Come Through Others
Change people's hearts so that they will long to advance Your will.

With the Mind of Christ, Ask and Receive
Petitions grow out of a desire for God...expressed by the Spirit's groaning; discerned by the Father's searching; furthering the Son's joy. (from Larry Crabb, The Papa Prayer)
