For followers of Jesus, prayer is a rebellion against the status quo. It calls on the God who created everything to reconcile all things to Himself-the broken people, messed up relationships and unjust systems. He invites us to a holistic freedom that restores the shalom He originally intended.
When the disciples came to Jesus in Matthew 6, He instructed them how to pray. Jesus’ teaching is clear, succinct and full of faith in Our Father. The Lord’s Prayer can be quoted verbatim and, as you grow in your faith, become the pattern for prayer taught by Jesus. Our prayer guide and events not only take people through the Lord’s prayer, but also teaches different styles of prayer and reflection.
Our events and prayer guide can be used in a group or alone. If you are a new believer, we encourage you to seek out a community to pray alongside as you start your walk with God. Our notes will include helpful guidance for both. It was written by Jonathan Walton and Courtney Wong.
This prayer guide was developed to be a multidenominational guide for Holy Spirit-led, God-centered prayer meetings. Prayer meetings do not have to be boring, poorly attended, or just an add-on during the week. Instead, prayer should be vital to a person’s prayer life and core to small group bible studies and witnessing communities.
This guide has been used with thousands of students and leaders since 2008. Most notably, it is the prayer and commissioning service for all of NYCUP’s Spring Break and Summer Immersion Programming.
