PRAYING BACKWARDS

Prayer Chapel

Christians often say, “In Jesus’ name” to close their prayers, but often this is just a ritualistic tag line. Instead, we should begin our prayers in Jesus’ name! This series will show you that to truly pray in Jesus’ name is to reorder your priorities in prayer away from yourself and towards Jesus and His kingdom. You’ll pray with greater boldness, persistence and expectancy!

Jesus commands us to be disciple-makers. But how do we help others become mature, reproducing disciple-makers themselves? One of the steps is learning to share your faith.
