Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. In this study let us meditate on this simple instruction, which forms a simple cheat-sheet in life.
John 11:42 – I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me. In this study, we will examine the nature of public prayers, why we should do it, and how we should do it through the case study of Jesus Christ’s own prayer.
Ezra 8:21 – There, by the Ahava Canal, I proclaimed a fast, so that we might humble ourselves before our God and ask him for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessions. In this study we will take a curious examination at how ancient people prayed for journey safety – and on top of that, we will look at why it is important for us to pray for our little ones.
Daniel 6:10 – Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before. In this study we will use Daniel as a case-study to examine the art of faithfully praying and giving thanks despite your circumstances.

1 Samuel 12:23 – Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by ceasing to pray for you, and I will instruct you in the good and the right way.

Ephesians 1:17 – I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. In this study, we will examine the need to continuously ask for the Spirit of wisdom and revelation – and not just for ourselves.
Joshua 1:8 – Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. In this study we will break down this verse into a simple stream of logic and examine how it can still be applied in our lives today.
Job 16:17 – yet my hands have been free of violence and my prayer is pure. In this study we will examine Job as a case study on keeping our prayers pure, even in hard times.
