Become a Person of Prayer

god

One of the most important habits a missional person can possess is being a person of prayer. As we live the missional life it is vital that we stay in touch with God. Prayer is communication with God. It is through prayer that we gather strength, insight and openness to be a missional people. For thousands of years people have prayed. Prayer has taken on different forms. Some people pray in silence. Others pray in groups. Still others pray using ancient rituals. How do you pray ? Do you pray ?

To pursue the missio dei (mission of God),prayer is a must. It is the very heart of the missional life.

What are the prayers of the missional person?

  • the presence of God
  • strength for the journey
  • for enemies
  • opportunities for service
  • personal sins
  • blessings of the day
  • people with needs

What are some ways to pray?

Just remember missional life begins with prayer. Let me suggest to you that you set aside 10 minutes a day for prayer. Try it this week. Start Sunday and keep this habit through the week and it could really change your life.

  1. I have just begun to try contemplative prayer – not very successfully but I don’t feel bad about it. I’m guessing it is something that takes practise and I know that God never expects us to be perfect, just willing.
