Prayer is a gift, but there are a lot of lies that diminish our enjoyment and engagement in prayer. These lies are perpetuated by the world. Some may be indirectly affirmed by different churches. Many of them are lies we tell ourselves. These lies cause a lot of confusion and difficult emotions around prayer. There may be fear, bitterness, shame, and overwhelm around prayer. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Prayer is a way for believers to commune with God, and there can be joy and excitement as we experience intimacy with God through prayer. In this episode, we dig deep into six major lies that believers can believe about prayer. Then we overcome these lies with truth found in God’s Word!
Lie: I’m bad at praying. (9:17)
Lie: My prayers don’t make a difference (23:32)
Lie: Prayer is selfish. (31:01)
Lie: Praying is boring. (33:26)
Lie: God doesn’t care about my prayers. (37:22)
Lie: I don’t need to pray. (44:15)
