HOW TO PRAY

How should we pray?

The Bible tells us that Jesus’ closest friends asked Him, “how should we pray?”

In response, Jesus taught them a beautiful short prayer. This prayer is called the Lord’s Prayer and it will guide your heart and mind down the path of life.

We encourage you to memorize it and pray it daily, embracing its great truths.
