Many of us grew up learning to pray about the business of being a Christian. We ask for help to do the right thing, pray that our relatives will know God or petition him to bless what we are doing for him. We ask forgiveness about the things we do wrong, and return repeatedly for direction and confirmation, so we’re certain we know what we’re supposed to do. Our prayers feel like work – which is no surprise, because that’s what our prayers are about: work.
And those are good prayers, but as Christians, it’s so easy to make our whole prayer life into something where we’re talking about the business all the time. What about the romantic side of your relationship with God? When was the last time you asked Jesus to tell you what he likes about you?
This way of praying is called ‘praying your desire’ or ‘Questions for Jesus’. A cool thing about desires is that God designed us to be desire-driven, and put desire in our hearts to draw us to Him, because He is the true object of our desire. Desires will draw us to His heart. Praying our desires connects us romantically with God, which is the relationship He wants to have with us. It gets us out of treating Jesus like a boss and into treating Him like a friend and lover. Join us for this e-course and start learning to pray your desires!
The course has three parts:
1. An online study course through the ‘Thinkific’ platform with teaching videos, exercises, handouts and ways to share your learning with other participants.
2. A free app with devotionals from which you can share with others in the course, what you are hearing from Jesus.
3. A weekly 1 hr and 15 min, Zoom call so you can practice what you are learning with others on the course and ask any questions you might have.
