Got questions about prayer?

You’re in the right place. Prayer can feel tricky and complicated, sometimes.

“Is it okay to ask God for things I want?” “Why aren’t all my prayers answered?” “Do I even have to pray at all?”

If you and your friends are asking questions about prayer, check out some of our favourite resources:

How to Pray and The Prayer Course

Grab hold of Pete Greig’s book, How to Pray. It’s the perfect guide to learning why we pray, and also provides some practical ways to get started too.

Alongside the book, you can join with your community to do The Prayer Course. Eight sessions unpacking The Lord’s Prayer and the different ways we can connect with God.

God on Mute and The Prayer Course II: Unanswered Prayer

Exploring some of the hardest questions we ask and experience, Pete Greig’s book God on Mute explores the pain and uncertainty of unanswered prayer and finding God in the midst of it.

And, you can also join with your community to do The Prayer Course II: Unanswered Prayer, which is a deep-dive into the journey Jesus took from Maundy Thursday – Easter Sunday exploring the themes of God on Mute.

The Big questions blog series

We’ve asked some of our wisest friends to answer some of the biggest questions on prayer in six blog posts. Explore Praying for the World, Whether or not prayer works (spoiler, we think it does), and how to hear God when we pray too.
